“Garnet black color. Aromas of dried cherries, foraged mushrooms, rose hip jam, tomato leaf, and paprika with a silky, crisp, dryish medium body and a smooth, complex, medium-long dried leaves, leather, cherry tart, and tonka bean finish with a suggestion of oak flavor. A luxuriously textured Chianti that will fit in very nicely at the table.”

Carletto Montpulciano d’Abruzzo 91 Points, Gold Medal, Exceptional Best Buy


“Deep purple color. Inviting aromas and flavors of stewed forest berries, ripe plum, biscuit with honey butter, red apples, and nutmeg with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium body and a smooth, engaging, medium-long finish displaying notes of pomegranate, black tea, and sweet tobacco with light oak flavor. A bold, fruity wine with lots of appeal; a great choice to serve as an all-around crowd pleaser or for Italian wine lovers.”
