빠넬로에서의 저녁, 마르게리따 부팔라 피자와 스테이크와 함께 곁들일 하프 보틀 와인으로 토스카나 와인을 골랐다. 이탈리아 와인, 넘나어려운것... 투명도가 높고 밝은 보랏빛에 이탈리아 와인답게 산도가 상당했는데, 첫 느낌은 새콤달콤의 업그레이드 버전 “새콤새콤달콤”! 살짝 느껴지는 달콤함이 감칠맛을 돋운다. 하프 보틀이라 아쉽당. 힛

이탈리안 카베르네소비뇽 & 산지오베제 블렌드 와인. 맑고 투명한 붉은 빛을 띄는 이 와인은 상큼한 베리향과 약간은 젖은듯한 흙냄새가 오늘 날씨와 묘하게 조화를 이루었다. 상큼한 산미가 기분을 업 시켜줘서 비오는 500일밤을 즐겁게 해준다. 고마워요 ^^

Not even close to it's name sake. Thin and tannic no fruit very disappointing

We DID really like it. A much lighter flavor on the tongue; peppery overall and a good nose. Light legs as many Italian & French wines are (in comparison to how we go overboard here in America with our Napa & other reds). Here’s the thing: I’ve found that anytime you get wines from other countries, the “bite” is always going to be softer and more subtle than what we are used to here with US wines (which tend to go as bold as possible). So you should always be ready for that- I could be wrong, but based on multiple variances over the years, this is what I’ve found. Would we buy this again? Sure.... but not “HELL YES!”...

The sangiovese really comes through in this blend. Surprisingly acidity and underripe fruit.
