The Donna Review
On opening this I did detect a strong smell and not an overly nice one. But after leaving this to breath it didn’t seem so strong. This is a corked wine – which is very rare, so wonder if this makes it better when travelling.
I can imagine drinking this in Italy on a hot summer night outside while enjoying some anti pasta. This is not a bad wine, it is full of flavour with a slight spicy aftertaste but nothing too unpleasant. For the price this is really good, you wouldn’t be disappointed,

Man with no Palate Review
They say Chianti does not travel but because I have no pallet I don’t necessarily find this to be true. Maybe it is the case with the more expensive Chianti’s but this Chianti around the $10 mark is surprisingly not a bad drop. It does have a slightly pungent aroma but is flavoursome, definitely fruity with a slightly clayey texture. With very little aftertaste for a wine so cheap.
