    He said: Dark brown/red color. light ripe cherry bouquet. Strong dry dark berry taste and a very dry finish. This is VERY easy drinking Chianti. It has a soft taste, complexity and a nice dry finish. It was outstanding with the red sauce. Not cheap, but it’s GREAT quality for the price in a Chianti.

    She said: Light berry bouquet followed by a dry full bodied taste with moderate tannins and high acidity. Long dry, acidic finish. Good wine at $18.00 especially with this kind of dinner. It’s over the top of the bargain budget but very much worth the extra expense.
