Strawberries, tar, roses. Light to medium weight. Finishes well. Still delicious on day two while rustling up some food.

Spicy, tangy, deliciousness- damp forest, on the nose, spruce and pallet pleasing tannins

Straightforward, but pure strawberry, citrus, licorice, and rock woven together with flowers. While simple, its posture is debonair. More than compelling for the price and a no-brainer at $13.

Seems odd to call a wine versatile, but this is a red that's light enough to chill and drink by the pool but sturdy enough to stand up to heartier meals. Of course, works just fine on its own too. Well balanced tannins with red berry flavors. Wish the finish lingered a bit longer, but at 12-13 a bottle this is a QPR steal.

A blend of Nebbiolo, barbera, dolcetto, fresia, albarossa and Pinot noir. Red fruit driven, with earthy and floral undertones. Flavours of cherries, baking spices and Liquorice. Structured finish. Chill for 30 min prior to enjoying. Fantastic find!

Fresh, bright, super tart. Walks the acid fruit line perfectly. Barely ripe grapes. Fantastic wine especially for the price.

Picked this up from a nearby package store on Cape Cod for less than $20. I love drinking entry level wines from top producers. The fruit might not be their best but there is every ounce the same effort that goes into these wines as the better wines. If it has their name on the bottle, the wine had better be good for that category.

This Rosso is fruity and a little wild. Red fruits and some floral notes come through. Reasonable finish. It was rather lovely slightly chilled.
