Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Full-bodied red, showing dark red fruit and plums on nose, followed by a rustic palate showing plums, cedar, tea, vanilla and herbs. Fairly tannic.
Tasted May 2017
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Nice bargain for a simple party pleasing Italian red. Sweet black cherry, mild spice notes and moderate tannins profile this wine. Enjoy this light-bodied classified Italian table wine with salami and hard cheeses.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
