Definitely needed to aerate more. Very complicated and not necessarily in a good way. Not bad but not something I would pick again if there was a good cab or Malbec available.

Great bang for buck. Had it with Persian kabobs. Went well! Red fruits, mod tannins. A good Italian table wine

Decent QPR at $10. With a light chill, exactly what you'd expect in a carafe at Piemontese trattoria.

An insanely cheap buy at BevMo but also shows great value. Light in body. Not a super simple style. Some earthiness peaks out through the cherry.

Italian table wine; great value. Can benefit from letting it breathe for a few hours.

Great food wine. Light enough for summer heat. Versatile. Strawberry and cherry.
