Smoked pork belly with sour cherry and cranberry on the nose. Slight hints of incense, coal and pencil shavings. The palate is gamy and rich. Reminiscent of bone marrow. Dark berry fruit over animal fat. It's very savory. It's so salty and savory it rather lacks a balance of fruit. Perhaps it needs more time to integrate.

Excellent wine. Full, rich plum and sour cherry flavors and aromas give way to a palate that is rich and velvety but not heavy, nor is it woody or stiff. Supple, smooth--everything you are looking for in a Chianti and never find--especially not under $20.

Pours a light crimson color with light pink hues on the edges. Simple nose with some light red cherries and raspberries. Starts off with a mild amount of fruit and lasts throughout. Not overly complex. This wine seems to have a lot of acidity but not much else. Not a wine to drink alone as it needs food to take away from the acidity. We served this with some pasta and red gravy. This is an affordable easy drinker.

Very attractive aromas of blackberries, flowers and plums. Medium-bodied, with light tannins and a juicy finish. Best after 2003.

Shows a more laid back, complex character, with delicate plum and cherry aromas and gentle red fruit flavors.

Initial scents of oak and spice give way to dried rose and sweet cherry. Plump and full. For pasta.

This is what Chianti should taste like, with plenty of dark cherry and floral aromas and flavors that say Sangiovese. Fresh and fruity. Drink now.

Slightly one-dimensional, but with lots of clean and fresh cherry character. Medium-bodied, with light tannins and a crispy fruity aftertaste. Drink now.
