"This fragrant red offers heady scents of ripe dark-skinned berry, pressed violet, eucalyptus and a potpourri of culinary spice. The refined palate is initially understated but then sneaks up on you with ripe wild cherry, cranberry, licorice and clove. It's surprisingly fresh for such a hot, dry vintage and balanced, with firm, refined tannins. Drink through 2025."

"I often hear Chianti Classico maligned, and I wonder why. Are people jaded by Tuscany? Looking for more trendy Italian reds? Operating on old information? I love Chianti, and I love sangiovese, one of the world’s great grapes. This is not to say Chianti does not have problems, but try a wine like this entry-level Retromarcia, made of 100 percent sangiovese. It’s pure, dry and juicy, without the complexity of a more ambitious Chianti, perhaps, but absolutely delicious."

A Great Value! - Light crimson in color this Chianti draws you in with its notes of cherry, dark spices, and earthy aromas. This light body red is well balanced from its delicate, but tight, tannins to the notes of the nose reflecting themselves upon the palate. Once it opens up more you're fully able to enjoy this wine in its glory as it becomes more rounded and rather enjoyable. Serve at the next barbecue as it'll pair nicely with grilled meats and veggies.

Real Sangiovese...very pure...as good as basic Sangiovese gets. - Very pure expression of chianti. Brilliant with bisteca, as it should be.

OK for dinner. - Not bad for value but a little weak for a Chianti.
