Never tried Sangiovese before. I really like it! I especially like the history behind it which is that it's a tribute to Juno, wife of Jupiter and Queen of the gods of Ancient Rome, the protector of welfare of women overseeing all aspects of marriage, fertility, and childbirth. #girlpower #wine #yum

This is crimson red fruit wine with a soft tannin presence. Hints of strawberry, raspberry, and mocha add to this blasting finish that leaves the drinker awe struck.

This has become my inexpensive go-to wine for tomato-based dishes. That's good because I bought a case. Tonight, chicken parmigiana.

Used this to make Coq Au Vin.. In retrospect should have used a French wine but I suppose I chose this one because of the tribute to Juno, protector of fertility and marriage. Strong fruit flavours, rich, pleasant.

A little on the fruity side. Low alcohol. Not bad for the price. I would buy again to share with friends who are just getting into wine.

I’d give this another try with a meal- but I had it on its own and was thoroughly meh.

Very fruity, nice body, not overly dry or flat. Great all around wine. Will get again.

The silky, buttery texture is perfect for pot roast.
