"The nose has a bit of fake fruit / bubble gum aromas. The best thing was the taste: lots of fruit and spices (cinnamon and nutmeg). Very concentrated and tannic."

"I really liked this. Very juicy, fruit forward CC, but not jammy (despite being a very warm vintage). Dominated by blackberry notes and Mediterranean herbs. Fresh and mid weight."

"This wine is interesting. It has lively acidity and tannins. Masses of cherries and there is an animal note, like new leather/ horse blanket. I like it, but you need to be prepared for the leather."

"Dont know what AG was drinking, but this wine is not a 96 pointer. I had two bottles and based on my taste buds this is good, but I can think of other Chianti Classico in the same price range that are better (eg, Castellin Villa and Felsina come to mind)."

"This is an interesting wine. Rich in color and with accents of golden apple, pineapple, honey. It makes you think it could be sweet but it is bone dry. Soft texture and long finish."

"Tasted this along with my benchmark Chianti Classico, the Castellin Villa current vintage, 2018. The Ama has more red-fruit accents and A LOT more acidity and tannins up front. The Castellin Villa is smoother and with darker fruit. I liked it, but Castellin Villa wins again."

"Really nice, balanced dessert wine. Notes of dried apricot, peach, and a whiff of paint. Never had this before. Reminds me of a Sauternes, but lighter body and fresher."

"Have been a fan of this wine for a while, so when I saw this good deal I was excited. Very aromatic, with red fruit, sage, and tomato leaf. Good structure and finish. I totally agree with the review by VM. An amazing wine!"

"The Italian version of a fruit bomb. VERY fruitforward, almost jammy, with hints of tomato leaf. However, still medium body, light, and with its backbone of acidity. Very food friendy. No oak."

"This is a nice, simple, and soft Chianti that I am sure a lot of people will enjoy. The reason why I am not giving a higher rating is because I prefer higher acidity."

"This is a fun wine to drink. Nose packed with red fruit, strawberry especially, and pepper. It makes you think its going to be sweet but its dry. Nice acidity, fresh, and tasty (almost salty). Im not an expert of Lambrusco, but this so far is the best that Ive had."

"Compared to Felsina and Castellin Villa, it is not quite as powerful or smooth. It has lots of stuffing to go with the tannins. I think this is in line with the warm vintage. Lots of aging potential. Aromas of plums and herbs."

"This is an interesting wine. The smell is very sweet, almost like a sweet sparkling wine. Candied fruit, blueberry jam, dried peaches. But its bone dry. I guess this is why Ian DAgata described this (Ruche) as an aromatic red varietal. The acidity makes it a good food companion."
