    Winemaker's Notes:

    #47 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

    The wine offers a brilliant ruby red color. As time passes, the hue is enriched with garnet tones that, as the years go by, lighten further toward orange with an ochre tint typical of Tuscan wines. The aroma is satisfyingly intense, fine and elegant, with light scents of ripe fruits and violets. As it evolves, the wine develops an appealing bouquet that is full and complex. It possesses a pleasant fullness and an outstanding balance of body and structure. Somewhat austere in its youth, the wine softens with age, becoming velvety and developing prolonged and appealing aromatic persistence.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.

    Nice wine to compliment everyday Italian food. Good color; light bouquet; medium density. Drink now; cellaring probably won't add much complexity.

    Light, ruby color - lighter then I expected (almost Pinot Noir like) - but, "Oh sooo smooth." Will have it and another classico ready for dinner guests in 2 weeks - great find!

    The nose greets you with a lovely dried cherries bouquet. The style is restrained elegance. Good acid balance makes for an outstanding food wine. Sangiovese at its best!

    This is a good, casual wine for weeknight dinners. It's a lot better than most wines available at this affordable price point.

    Decent, but would not purchase again. In fairness, we haven't had that many Chianti's, so our rating may not 100% reliable on this one.
