A stylish, sunny and foodfriendly Chianti Riserva with some extra depth of colour and flavours courtesy of a dab of Cabernet Sauvignon. Pretty plum, black cherry, cedar, toast, vanilla and mocha notes are echoed splendidly on the palate, which is mouthfilling yet elegant. Enjoy it tonight with meaty pasta dishes, or a sizzling steak brushed with olive oil, salt and pepper. (VINTAGES panel, May 2012)

Simple, plummy-fruity, with candied fruit and very short, firm finish. Basic. Tasted December 2012. Value Rating: *1/2

This has some appeal in its relatively soft almost lazy nature, but the fruit is also muffled by the chocolate...
