“This is a little overdone with some vanilla and prune character. Full body. Simple finish. Drink now.”~JS

“The Chianti DOCG designation applies to all Chianti wines other than those made from grapes grown in the Chianti Classico area. This appellation covers six specific sub-zones, such as Chianti Rufina and Chianti Colli Senesi, by far the largest of the sub-zones. It extends west and south of the classico zone and encompasses vineyards around San Gimignano, Montalcino and Montepulciano among others. The warmer microclimate of the southern part of Colli Senesi, enables producers to make relatively full-bodied Chianti wines. Fattoria del Cerro has 50 acres of these vineyards in the Chianti Colli Senesi appellation. Comprehensive in their diversity, the different expositions of the vineyards allow for a rigorous selection of the best grapes to make quality wines. Vivid Ruby red color, slight purplish hues. The bouquet on the nose is fruity with hints of wild black cherry, cherry and a delicate balsamic and herbal finish. On the palate it is soft and full bodied with excellent persistence. Best served with first course dishes, meat and mushroom sauces, veal stews and roast chicken.”~Winery Notes

Great wine for a great price - Traditional Chianti with plenty of fruit. A solid red for pairing with hearty Italian fare, cheese, and meat.

RB's Colli Senesi 2016 review - upon initial tasting in August 2018 I found this wine to be a bit thin but with all the flavor qualities of a good Chianti. Re-tasted a month later and the thinness has disappeared. Sure it still could be a bit richer but at this price it is a fabulous Chianti. Had it with my favorite pasta tomato sauce and it went perfectly. Haven't tried it with Fava beans yet.

Great price and good! - I would say this is a gentle chianti, probably because it is young. I bought a case so I can enjoy it now and I predict it will get better as it ages. It's worth the gamble at this price.

Off Tasting Chianti - I usually enjoy Chianti, but there's something off with this one. Opened one bottle and it was definitely off (green and rough). Poured it down the drain, thinking it was a bad bottle. Second bottle was a tiny bit better, but still very off. Not drinkable. I really wanted to like it (after all, a reasonably priced Chianti), but no joy here.
