A very good value, this wine is fragrant, soft, full-flavored, and has a bit of complexity. Hard to beat at $12.99.
Very dark black ruby. Surprisingly youthful-looking for a 5-year old wine. With air, the nosy displays lots of smoky, fragrant embers and sun-dried gravel, together with very nice blackberryish fruit. Fairly full-bodied, but with excellent acidity for a southern Italian red, it got ripe, winey, dark berry fruit, with a nice gravelly overlay. Fairly long finish, and loads of palate-refreshing acids. This will work very well with pasta and meat sauce, or Italian tomatoey braises. B+. Got this from WTSO.com.
