Too sweet for my liking. Although wasn’t bad with spicy chilli.

Acidity & fluid density steal the show! Unfortunately this value Tuscan didn’t deliver the distinctive layers. Faint nose of black fruits & cough drop menthol. The entire taste experience is edged with acidity. Challenging my palate to seek out the glints of blackberry, breath of rose, tightness of leather & the abrupt finish of crushed tomato. Need to find a food for this wine as on its owns it’s not delivering a satisfying enjoyment😕🍷

opened a double magnum. the wine had great old world flavors, thought the large format would add longevity which it did but it was clearly ready to drink. 12 years of aging made a great wine that held up while being open for hours

A staple in my house. My favorite wine to introduce beginner red wine drinkers to something new. Fruit-forward, rich cherry, with enough Cab to use as a stepping stone to bolder reds. Great value.

Had to let it breathe for a bit to create some balance.

Just wow! Love this Blend, probably due to its primary mixture being Sangiovese. Berry fruitfulness measured with an oak dry texture play against each other to make rich full bodied flavor that matched perfectly with Sunday dinner. Highly recommend.
