La Maialina

Ruby red, with bright aromas and flavors of red cherries and ripe strawberries with hints of sweet spices and a soft finish.

Wine Advocate

The 2008 Chianti is a very serious wine for the money. The floral aromatics render an impression of accessibility but the darkness and richness of the fruit that follow hint at a far more important pedigree. Dark red berries, flowers and minerals add the final notes of complexity on the impressive finish. This is one of the most rewarding wines readers will find under $10. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014.

Score: 88. —Antonio Galloni, August 2010.
