The Full Review

The 15% of Merlot in this Classico masks any subtlety of the 85% of Sangiovese, making this a plush, round, and chewy wine more in line with a new world style, it is also at 14.5% alcohol. It is a nice medium to full bodied wine with notes of vanilla and blueberries with the hint of oak and cherry hanging out backstage and heat from the alcohol up front. It is not a Classic Classico but if you are having an Italian meal, want a Chianti, but want it big for under $20, this bottle is for you.
