When paired with Italian food this wine shines, not great as a stand alone wine. The nose is slightly smokey, with some oak, blackberry, and pepper. The taste is ripe dark berry fruit, red apple, pomegranate, vanilla, with hints of carmel and baking spice. Overall, the wine is good bang for your buck especially when paired with pizza, bucatini, or vodka sauce😀

Super fresh, nice texture, sour cherry bramble bright. Salivary action with savory undertone. #dailytable approved

Bold, balanced, thick and juicy! Buy this if you find it! Aromas: Smokeyleather, oaky vanilla, rich bold sour cherry, New Pair of sneakers. Taste: its amazing! dark red fruits, Cassis, blackberry, undergrowth and black pepper. This has great mouth feel, with balanced tannins and acidity.

Crazy value at $10. Trader Joe's.

My father in law bought this in the $10–20 range from Trader Joe’s. Big, acidic, and spicy, this went well with our pasta and tomato sauce and even stood up to a salad with vinagrette. A surprising vintage bargain from a grocery store.

Sometimes your only option is TJs and if that’s the case, this is the wine 😉

Rich and ripe Sangiovese with. I’ve mouthfeel and pleasant acidity followed by black pepper, cloves, and notes of oak. Incredible for the price.
