A delicious blend of 90% Sangiovese & 10% Cabernet/Merlot. You get juicy strawberry and cherry flavors with hints of black pepper and clove that linger on the finish. Its lively acidity works well with the off-dry pallate, medium body and light tannins. Best when slightly chilled (55-60°F) and paired well with pepperoni pizza! ($11) [7/25/16]

A little sharp but perfect as an addition to bolognese.

Field blend from a vineyard that makes a Barbera de Monferrati that I love. Bright, acidic, and a bit chewy. I'm biased here but it really is a lot of fun and easy to drink.
