If this is actually a $14 wine I'll soil myself. Polished and rustic at the same time. Dark, earthy sweet fruit and a sludge of soft tannins. Pasta wine extraordinaire.

Smooth, supple, dried oregano, woody, cherry, plum, and a hint of strawberry with just right combination of tart and sweet. Easily beats 95pct of the Chiantis I've had recently.

Big nose of blackberry, flowers and a hint of vanilla. Leaner in the mouth with good acidity.

Dark ruby red. Cherries, oak, and some tobacco on the nose. Med high tannin, acid, and alc. intense Red fruits up front. Cherry with some raspberry. Well balanced. Some oak. Yummy with our lasagna!
