Wine EnthusiastThis bright, straightforward red offers aromas of wild berry, coffee and a whiff of tilled soil. On the soft, easy-drinking palate, notes of chopped sage and baking spice add interest to the red cherry core.

Wine AdvocateSangiovese is blended with a tiny part Merlot (just 5%) to produce the no-fuss 2014 Chianti Classico. This is a bright and easy-going Tuscan red with lean consistency and a watery finish. It imparts cherry, blueberry and grilled herb along the way. Bright acidity seals the deal.
