Fruity and odd, with a Beaujolais-like freshness. Not bad, though not what one would expect from the region.

Mild tannin and acid. But actually a ton of fruits. More structure than a Pinot and goes with a lot of different food. Very light and drinkable.

Real slurpable this. That slight leather, so typical of Italian wines. Otherwise cherry, plum, almond and pistachio with pomegranate and basil.

Dried herbs, bay leaf, mushroom, savory, tomato leaf, and funky in a good way. M+ acid, m tannin. M+ intensity. Cherry, plum and saline on the palate. Long finish.

Pretty good for a red. Not very tannic, fruity and a little spicy.

Big tannin and acidity. Tart fruit. Needs to open a bit. Cigar and leather notes. Once opened after about 20 mins, peppery notes and bold mocha like notes come through. Very long finish.

I found this a tad muted, close with the flavor and structure but lacking. Others commented that it is very food versatile, I can see that. Easy drinking.
