Blackberry, raspberry, cherry, cranberry, vanilla and loamy earth. Good structure and well-integrated tannins.

Clear cherry red. Shy nose of earth and black cherry. Medium tannins on entry. Very closed palate to start. Opens up to dark cherry and leathery earth. Definitely sings with Tuscan fare.

Lacking some tannin but otherwise a good sangio example.

Deep transparent ruby. Tart cherry and strong tea on the nose and palate. Medium firm tannins and medium plus acidity. Dark medium finish. Great value.

It was nice but I found it forgettable, in large part bc I have yet to develop a taste for fuller bodied red wines. They honestly all taste quite similar to me

Only with food and even then not really for me. Tannins and acidity make my stomach feel like it's on fire.
