    Polenta, grilled veggies, rosemary roasted chicken, pasta with a rich marinara sauce, pepperoni and mushroom pizza, lamb moussaka... the list of friendly food pairings is all but endless for this bright and savory Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Deliciously ripe blackberry, cherry and plum fruit, a dash of nutmeg spice and earth combine with caressing tannins and gentle acidity. This audacious red will fast disappear from our shelves at this price, so I'd advise you not to wait or hesitate....

    I have to admit this wine caught me by surprise, I was expecting something a bit grittier but wow, the nose alone shows loads of rich fruit, like a mixed berry compote, wave after wave of flavor. On the palate the wine shows more spice, earth a bits of leather mixed in with the bold berry statement. It leaves a bit of an umami driven, savory finish that is ridiculously good for this price point.Yet this isn't a plump, structure-less wine this baby's got it all going, fruit, complexity, length with a bit of tannic structure. Really a spectacular wine.
    Drink from 2017 to 2021

    What a fantastic value on a food friendly and interesting wine. This is a touch earthy with intense flavors of dark cherry, spice, ripe blackberry and uplifting minerality on the rich finish. This drinks like a $25.00 bottle.

    A Tuscan charmer! Lots of the dark cherry Sangiovese fruit made a little darker with the help of Cab and Merlot. A touch of spice, a whiff of Tuscan dust and a dry but not classically assertive finish. This will be a go to pizza pasta red while it lasts!

    This is one of my favorite producers from Tuscany. This is their "Super Tuscan" - a very user friendly wine, the blend is 70% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot. Lots of dark skinned fruit with spice, minerals that complete each other on the nose and palate. The wine has pleasantly soft tannins, but good acidity to pull it all together. Buy two, the first one will disappear quickly.

    What a slam dunk value from Tuscany! This inexpensive bottle has so much going on for the price. Not only does it have friendly, ripe, brambly blackberry flavors it also has good balancing acid and tannin. This is real wine for your week night pizzas and pasta dishes!
