(100% sangiovese): Medium ruby-red. Brooding aromas of redcurrant, graphite, violet and spices. Sweet and pliant in the mouth but not soft, with pure flavors of dark plum, redcurrant and gunflint. Finishes with noble tannins and good backbone. This is currently still folded in on itself: I'd cellar it another two years prior to opening a bottle.

As good as any Chianti that I can remember and an excellent value. Should have bought two cases
Builds up steam
First bottle was just ok. Second bottle really shined after opened 3 hours. This wine will need more time in cellar- another year to come together. Rated 89-90 pts.
As delicious as any Chianti Classico we've tasted. The first sip had a surprise burst of fruit flavor with a pleasant finish. Our first Wineaccess purchase, and a good one!

May be a little young but very enjoyable nonetheless. Much richer than expected and just the right amount of dryness. Excellent value at the price offered.
Italy, like France, offers a world of wine styles within a single country: dry
Italian white wines ranging from lively and minerally to powerful and full-bodied; cheap

style; structured, powerful reds capable of long aging in bottle; sparkling wines;
sweet wines and dessert wines.
