Dry, some fruit and some tannins but not too intense. A nicely balanced wine.

Hint of berries. Smooth finish. Decent body. Maybe my second Sangiovese...

Lots of barnyard funk in the nose. In the mouth you get tart cherry and plum with a light acid finish that lingers. This is a good value wine if you are looking for a light bodied Italian red that drinks fine with pasta in a red sauce. For those raters who gave low ratings expecting something else, you have no clue what you bought.

Rule number one for this wine: let it breathe for at least an hour, after decanting it. It has supertuscan power, dark fruit flavors, and a long finish.

Long finish, deep flavor. Would pair well with steak or a red sauce.

Wonderful Tuscan blend. Drank it with family at Vito's in Pacific Grove: recommended by Vito.

This is some yummy Italian wine! Runs about $20 a bottle in my neck of the woods, which makes it special occasion for this gal. Every red lover I share it with loves it. Dry & smooth.

Not as good on it's own but pairs great with food. Had it with grilled steaks
