With air, rich cherry notes. Finish is a little harshly bitter. For $13 I’ll take it

It’s a low end Banfi so I wasn’t expecting much and it delivered about that. Rustic and earthy, like an old leather bound book. Doesn’t quite stick or open up, so think of it more like an outdated encyclopedia that isn’t so useful anymore other than looking good on a hipster’s shelf.

Light bodied, high acidity, dark fruit, medium finish. Drank with Ottolenghi meatballs in Chapel Hill.

Cherry with herb on the nose. Pretty tannic. Nice with a simple red sauce pasta

This is like drinking bing cherry, rainier cherry, and raspberry. The purity of the the fruits is the standout here. Adding the mild strawberry and hint of tobacco note, this is sheer delight.
I was surprised by how much I love this it. Sometime simple is better.
