''Aromas of black cherry, liquorice, new leather with sage and herbs. Medium-bodied, fleshy & ripe. Slate-like tannin push through on a long sweet fruited and savoury finish. Classico indeed. Excellent.'' 92 Points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
''Black cherry, liquorice, new leather with sage and dried herb perfume. Medium-bodied, but fleshy and ripe. Good freshness, and perfume, and then all the slate-like tannin pushes through on a long fruit sweet and savoury finish. Classico indeed. Excellent.'' 92 Points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
''This is gorgeous, classically built wine with tons of Sangiovese character. Wild red cherry, cedar, tobacco, game, mint and licorice give this mid-weight Chianti Classico tons of character. Bright acids and nervous energy add to its considerable appeal. Readers who appreciate traditionally made wines will adore this. It is everything Chianti Classico should be.'' 93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media (Previous Vintage Review)
