Not my favorite from the portfolio. A bit blasé.

Sangiovese by the fire. What could be better? I appreciate Betsy & Bill's passion for field blends.

Definitely new world oak treatment. Fruit is masked a bit, but a fun effort.

Decanted this one and it took some time to finally open up. The last bit reminded me why we liked this so much when we visited the winery. Love this Sangiovese.

Excellent wine! Balance is right on. Cherry flavors, earthiness and medium body. I had it with eggplant parm and I was in heaven. Better than a lot of Italian versions that I had.

Fun and easy drinking. Crunchy fresh cherry fruit and zippy acidity. Yum!

Perfect with fettuccini with sugo all'amatriciana. The wine really made the meal better. Love the wines from Acorn - especially this Sangiovese.
