Sweet, just a little acidic. Not as good the 2nd day

Lighter-bodied, especially considering it’s a #sangiovese #merlot #cabernetsauvignon blend. Somewhat reserved cassis aroma; classic Tuscan flavors: earthy wild cherry, slight pepper yet more fruit-forward with chewy tannins. I’d like more depth and bracing acidity but hard to argue with the $9 price at Costco. ***2 days later and the wine has awakened, more plush Sangiovese cherry-spice aroma and the tart cherry acidity has come forward. Excellent #toscanaigt - very strong QPR.***

Surprised. Good decently priced. Has a hint of something I’m not skilled enough to identify as an after taste, but no less it makes this wonderful. Paired with pasta it was great.

13%. If drinking as soon as opened, would be lower in eating. But after sitting for a bit. Flavor much better and tannins less intense.

Smells of fresh fruits, earthy. Has very nice clean crisp taste. More cherry like than dark berry. It’s delicious.
