Winner of a Gold medal at the Mundus Vini Grand International Wine Award for Meininger's Magazine 2018. A nose of complex earthy spices and a more obvious oak character (16 months in 40% new French Barriques) speak of the quality of this wine despite it's agreeable price. On the palate there is morello cherry, black olive, fresh and lively acidity, chalky but yielding tannins and a lovely round finish. Hints of rustic earthiness, but overall very clean and modern in style.

They've done it again! Textbook, classic Chianti, and the reason why this is one of the most famous wines in the world. Fresh, brisk acid, chewy tannins, hints or oak, black fruits, black olive tapenade and bitter dark chocolate. Ticks every box and makes the mouth water. Delicious- the bottle will vanish in no time!

Blackcurrants, red licorice and fresh flowers on the nose. Firm tannins on the full palate. Plenty of dark fruit and berries with a bit of mint as well. Give this another year to even out. Best after 2022
