At a price point of $10-$12, you can't go wrong with this sipper which brings together the tangy, spicy, red berry flavors of Sangiovese, the black fruits and tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon, and the softer roundness of Merlot. Drink this with spicy, meat dishes, including pasta and pizza with pepperoni, sausage, and salumi. (sample)

Blackberry, raspberry, black cherry, oak and vanilla. Unpretentious and honest. Perfect with pasta.

Came across this in a good wine store. Let it breath. Enjoy with friends. I had guests mention how much they enjoyed it

Happy 60th James!

None of my normal formal notes other than to say the evolution in 5L was better than expected. It was nicely, softened, round with good complexity & elegance.

Sweet & sour cherries, blueberries, stewed plums, saddlewood, soft tarry notes, bright dark, red with hints of blue florals. Exceeded my expectations.

Paired well with my heavy meat red sauce. Guests seem to enjoy both as they are both gone!

Photos of, the party in our friends amazing backyard and Hedy’s tasty appetizers.

Tasty Sangiovese blend. Nice to see such a prestigious producer with an affordable everyday red that preserves their integrity.
