The Oddbins Take

This is an impressively neat little bargain Chianti that's on the bodysome, flavoursome side of this classic Italian style. This slightly more buxom red is moreishly drinkable, soft and lip-smackingly ripe. The palate is still classic though - with dark cherry and plum. This really is the wine to match with your takeaway pizza and a good classic gangster movie.

Anthony Rose in The Independent 11/1/14: "A blend of Tuscany’s sangiovese grape with a touch of cabernet sauvignon and merlot for fuller body, this good-value chianti is a pizza-friendly discovery."

The Wine Gang, Report February 2014: "Mostly made from Sangiovese, this is a well put together, pasta-bashing Chianti ...[that] punches above its weight for its appealing herby aromatics and juicily appetising cherryish-plum fruit quality."

Following controlled alcoholic and malolactic fermentation the wine is aged in oak casks for six months before bottling.
