It's only wine but I like it

Bigger and riper than a typical Chianti Classico, this Sangiovese from the warmer Morellino di Scansano still has the hallmarks of that grape - sour cherry fruit, and hint of earthiness, brisk acidity and dusty tannin. Not overly complex, but well within what one might expect at the price. You can safely ignore the 93 pt rating from James Suckling (his credibility long ago evaporated for me). Tasted May 2018.
