Classic Chianti Classico flavor profile in a broad-shouldered package. Nose shows dried cherry, cedar and forest floor, stony gravel. Mouthfilling, with good concentration for an annata, flavors fruity at first and then quickly turning savory and minerally. Light tannin, good middle-of-the-road acidity. Medium long finish. Great value.

Dusty Firenze cellar, the nose is unmistakable.

Hazelnut dust, pomegranate, black cherry, all held together with sharp and enjoyable Buddha palm acidity, some cigar box tannins.
The grilled pizza did not turn out so well, luckily the wine has made up for it!

Great value at $16. Perfect for pasta and red sauce. Wifey enjoyed it as well and thought it was one of the better chianti she has had recently.

Dusty, slightly dried black cherries, licorice, cedar, baked clay, pepper. This definitely needed time to open up, but it smoothed out nicely w air. Classic and earthy.

Color of burgundy, a bit more copper and purple notes. Nose of dried sweet strawberry, oak, savory spices, nice ripe berries, and a bit leathery. Taste of refined yet still solid tannins, black tea, subtle sweetness from multiple berries, a bit minty and zesty, light yet good flavors. Aftertaste shows some more sweet black tea, zest, ripe grapes, and grape skins. Peak time and well done in harmony.

3,8.
Very decent. A cherry with a leather and smoke. Short finish. Medium tannins.

Nikki fav. Very well Balanced. Enough fruit to balance out the tannins. Could use some more acid for my taste but still tasty.

This wine is something not for everyone, very tart, quite tannic.
