This was s total guess at the wine store. Turned out to be a lovely surprise with a good price tag. I will look for this one again. Give it some time to open up.

This is an absolutely delicious Toscana, but it still needs time to open up. An hour helped, but I think a couple years in the bottle will turn this into a real gem. I love the spice and dark fruit added by the cab sauv, and the velvety texture from the cs and merlot. Great blend.

Old world flavours with super-Tuscan branding. 85% sangiovese, 10% Cab Sauv and 5% Merlot in the 2010 vintage of this ruby red beauty. Great value for money, this is an inexpensive Super Tuscan which delivers on fruit, tannins, acidity in a well balanced way, with integrated flavours and an elegant lush mouthfeel. Wonderful poring with spinach and truffle gnocchi and parmigiana reggiano. Buy this by the case. Wonderfully diverse with meat dishes and classic Italian fare. Enjoy 2015-2018.

Fresh and lighthearted cab,merlot, sangiovese blend perfect for pizza and pasta. Touches of cassis ladled over dusty sour cherry and bayleaves. Very little wood, just a gentle spice, medium, lush and simplistic palate. Still fine definition of flavor and balance. Finishes lipsmacking and zesty. Good vintage for this, and remains a dinner table staple at the price.

Solid undertones of raspberry and cherry. Slightly smoky and definitely tasty with an acidic aftertaste.
