I can tell it's Sangiovese, vaguely. Good for a kids pizza restaurant

Cherry aromas. Fairly simple. Strong tannins that create a substantially dry, astringent, mouth-puckering finish... A bit too much for my taste. Probably better with food than for sipping. 12.5% Alc.

Not bad for a table wine with pizza. $24 at a restaurant.

Just wow. Blew all of us away at dinner for the price. Goes well with Indian food.

Very light brick color and limpid. Bright. Light body and nice acidity. Floral and truffle aromas. Fugacious.

It opens with a burst of tart cherry, but then...more tart cherry carries through the mid-palate. But the finish...oh the finish is really where the tart cherry comes into play. A one trick pony, ruby and fruity.

Fruity and dry, decent tannins, kinda harsh. Could be more refined.
