On the label, the horsemen are drinking the wine out of clay pots… because they don’t want to see what’s inside it.

Needs food and more time in the bottle.

 In 1877, Illario and Leopoldo Ruffino laid the foundations of their dream to make Italian wines from the heart of Tuscany. Medium Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruit and earthy spice. On the palate black cherry, blackberry and plum flavors with tobacco, pepper and earthy cedar notes. Full-bodied, well balanced soft drying tannins on a smooth medium+ finish. Grab some Italian food and enjoy the great value wine. Consistent quality.

Continuing to work my way through wines I don’t drink a lot I could be tested on. I’m rather fond of this one and it’s an exemplary standard Chianti Classico: tart red fruit, tomato, something sanguine and a full yet well-knitted backbone of tannins and acid to ballast all. Images of pizza are now dancing in my head. Thank god this wine was easier to comprehend than The Shape of Water. Jut sat through my screener of that and have no idea what to make of it. With this wine I just know I should drink it. But also maybe make pizza.

At $26 I would pass, but at $9... An excellent Tuesday night quaffer. Tart cherry, rose petal, cedar, leather, and spice, with a lemony acidity that makes this food-friendly.
