A piercingly fresh nose! Crunchy red and dark fruits with a slatey, mineral feel. There’s so much freshness and verve here, underpinned with fine tannins. This is a medium-bodied wine, with great intensity. Fresh, elegant yet also with good concentration of both red and dark fruits. Delicious and fresh finish and real concentration - a stunningly fresh and elegant wine.

Fine depth and ‘minerality’ for an entry level Chianti here. It’s red and black fruits, tobacco and crushed rocks, some chocolate, dried herbs and nuts. Tannin is rolling, grainy and ferrous, richness of fruit, freshness of acidity, no shortage of flavour, and heaps of delicious chewiness. Bloody good. This is a producer to watch.
