Cherry, raspberry, currant, blackberry, mossy earth and hints of licorice. Good structure and moderate tannins.

Lavender, wet earth, mushroom, dark cherry, leather. Medium + tannins and acidity, round mouthfeel, medium + finish. Still young, but powerful and a great value!

Great value in an everyday red wine for the table. Sangiovese is the major influence

Excellent value from Northern Tuscany. Full and dense, but vibrant and balanced. Sangiovese/Cabernet. Less than $20

Full body firm tannins like chewing matches black berry intense need to be pair with gamey food or a dish with a rich sauce to soften it
