Cherry, berry, cranberry, violet notes. Boring, but balanced and good.

This is one of the best inexpensive Sangiovese blends I’ve ever had. Fruity and very good with cheese and pasta. This is a good one to keep around.

Blackberry and some plum, not sweet but pleasant. Fuller body with a short, dry finish.

Solid Tuscan blend that packs a punch. Smokey on the palate, dry, and smooth, despite the bold flavor profile. Sits well with pungent cheeses and spicy red sauce dishes. Decanting recommended.

Solid pickup at Safeway, perfect for a second bottle of the night.

Smooth, easy drinking. Mild sweetness and tannin flavors are a good blend for a table wine.

Like the wine! Complex, but has a little higher acidity than I normally like. Nice smooth wine with a little tart finish. Good overall.
