Blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Canaiolo. The medium intensity nose is a touch ripe and offers red cherry, red currant, earth, forest floor and oak aromas, with touches of barnyard. On the palate, it's medium-bodied and dry with pleasing aroma replays and soft, rounded tannins. There's good acidity and the finish length is very good. Tasted May/2017. Score: 88+ pts

Pleasantly surprised for large volume production >20$ chianti. Classic style, sour cherry, leather and spice. High acid and pretty. Not very substantial, but right on the money for the price point, rustic and easy.
