Nice berry aroma with some other subtle notes of spice and even something vegetal. Medium body, smooth texture and flavor of tart cherries all the way to the finish. Very nice for $12.

For more than 600 years, the Antinori family has been producing fine wines in Tuscany. Santa Cristina, a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot, is aged in oak casks for 4 months. A smooth, quaffable wine to enjoy with family and friends, it would pair well with light tomato sauces, grilled salmon or chicken stir-fry.

This wine boasts aromas of saddle leather and black cherries, with just a hint of medical tape. On the palate, the flavors remain true, with cherries and leather predominating, and a slight creaminess. Finishes tart and a bit one-dimensionally fruity, but this is a nice entry-level Sangiovese with good varietal character.

Crisp and fruity, with plenty of dried cherry character throughout. Light- to medium-bodied, with light tannins and a refreshing finish. Delicious now.

A soft red, boasting black cherry, blackberry and spice notes. Tails off a little on the finish. Drink now through 2014.

Bright cherry red with purple highlights. Medium-bodied. Moderately extracted. Mildly tannic. Red currants, vanilla. Crisp, bright juicy flavors define this. Very refreshing with some good flavor complexity.

Crisp, focused and lean, but with a nice band of raspberry, anise and vanilla aromas and flavors. A Tuscan red; technically not a Chianti, but similar in style. Drink now to 1996. 90 percent Sangiovese and 10 percent Canaiolo.

An easy-drinking red, with cherry, citrus and fresh herb character. Medium body. Clean, tight finish. This never lets you down for the buck. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Kirschrot, mit lebendigen Reflexen. Wunderschönes Bouquet nach roten Beeren und Schokolade. Die angenehme Süsse verschmilzt mit der Note von Salbei und feinen Gewürzen. Gut eingebaute Tannine, schöne Struktur.
