    Fresh, dense crushed cherry and menthol characters jump off the nose of this value Super Tuscan. The meaty, chewy tannins are met with bold acidity that brightens the deep fruit character. Complex & intriguing- especially for the price!

    The wines of Villa Pillo are always big sellers at K&L as the price/value ratio is stellar. The Borgoforte highlights Cabernet and Merlot blended with 50 percent Sangiovese and all three are apparent. The blackberry and black cherry flavors along with some surprising structure make this ideal with grilled and roasted meats. There's a lot going on at $12.99 and this is a serious Tuscan blend at the price.

    The nose of this wine says Tuscany, hints of wild cherry, sage, rosemary from the 50% of Sangiovese then followed by the plumy, chocolaty depth from the 40% Cabernet Sauvignon with hints of spice from the 10% Merlot. The wine has a linear character, and on the palate it has vibrant depth and structure but opens on the back end showing more breadth and suppleness. This is a remarkable wine for the price point and should probably be more expensive just to give folks a heads up that it isn’t to be drunk as simple plonk, it’s a real wine, powerful, deep, expressive and should be decanted and had with a grilled T-bone or a big cheesy lasagna.

    And now for something completely different! This is a Super Tuscan at a super price. This bad boy is made up of 50% Sangiovese, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot, and I swear you can taste all of these. On the palate you will find flavors of black cherry, plum and soft floral notes blended with silky tannins. The Cabernet gives this a backbone you can feel and a nice smooth and long finish.
