He said: Chilled 20 minutes before opening. Slightly foggy ruby red color. Slight “Chianti” aromas. Somewhat dry, slightly sour (almost harsh) fruit (black current) taste that stays through a medium-length finish. At best it’s a fair Italian red; pretty poor Chianti. At any price it’s not a recommended Chianti!!!
