90 points Falstaff
"Bright ruby red with a delicately lightening edge. On the nose, young plums and red currants, delicate violets. On the palate it is juicy with bright fruits, it embraces a beautiful range, young, of excellent drink."
"Greve in Chianti. Cask sample.
Mid crimson. Leafy cherry and raspberry fruit with hints of garden herbs. Light yet compact palate of raspberry fruit and supple acidity. Just a touch of creamy oak and gorgeous, succulent sour-cherry fruit with gripping tannins on the finish. 17/20 points. (WS)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
This is a wine that expresses both the Chianti Classico terroir as well as the Sangiovese grape. The grapes for this wine are sourced from vineyards in the village of Ruffoli, located in Greve. Harvested at the peak of ripeness in October and fermented in concrete tanks, this wine is one of the finest examples of this classic Italian varietal. Tasting Notes: Bright ruby red in color, a lively bouquet of red fruits and blackberries complement undertones of ripe cherries and pomegranate seeds. On the palate, the wine is fresh and fruit-forward with silky tannins that evolve throughout the finish. Food Pairing: A very food-friendly wine that can be paired with a number of dishes including rosemary roasted lamb, tomato based sauces, and hearty chicken stews.
