Close to 4 stars. Chianti is great stuff, so definitely playing to my heart strings on this one. I found this one to be especially good for not being a Classico. Italian table wine at its absolute finest on this bottle. Well done.
In a blind tasting I would be challenged to identify this wine as a Chianti; and I've been a wine steward! the Collezione has all of the characteristics of a mid-level Zinfandel. Lush, big round notes with lots of fruit. Great drinker! Not sure how long it would last in a wine cellar though.
