A roller coaster ride or tug of war between cab and Sangiovese, it seems. At times, it seems big and jammy and nondescript. But then this nice, edgy, rustic quality would poke out. Good acid. Definitely a crowd pleaser, but I need to drink more to formulate an opinion.

Another winning entry level bottling by Montepeloso, bursting with cherry fruit, dried flowers and lifted by fresh acidity.

For the price it's hard to beat - a "super" Tuscan. Great mix of fruit, leather and earth with big creamy oak character.

Seductive and generous yet very precisely crafted, this sexy Sangiovese based blend offers amazing depth considering its modest price tag. More elegant than usual, it marks a new era of this cuvée. Well done!

Rich berry flavors give way to spice with an earthy finish at the end. What a steal for the price.
