A value-driven Montepulciano.

Cherries lead on the fruity nose. Leaner, restrained and food friendly on the palate. Soft tannins, great acidic zip for pasta lovers, and a light finish.

Very drinkable. Dry yet a little fruity. Great with a steak

Hints of tobacco and leather. Nice plum presence. Soft tannins and medium - medium + body. Good with pizza. Slight oak finish.

Fruity, plum, earth. Silky smooth on the palate. Not much structure. It's practically gulp-able. I didn't pair it with pizza, but I bet it's a match made in mediocre heaven. I would suggest their Pinot Grigio, super complex and fun to drink!

Modern approach. This goes down easy with some present acidity.

Good color. Decent tannin and good dark plums and cherries. Pretty good quaffing wine.
