9.1

Sangiovese blended with malvasia nera, colorino, merlot, and cabernet sauvignon produces a wine with spirited blackberry and black currant fruits. A trace of wet leaves and amber sweetness add dimension, but overall this is a blithe and bright-eyed Chianti, best for weeknight suppers. 13.5% abv | $19 (sample)

Nice and ripe but still plenty fruity. Great with eggplant Parm.

$48 at Sea Salt. Slightly vegetable with good fruit and nice balance. Delicious. #MiniWineReview #2GU
