Soft and plush Italian red wine that's medium- to almost full-bodied. Fleshy black plums and berry aromas on the nose and palate of this Sangiovese-based wine. Nice aperitif or companion to pork tenderloin.

Food pairings: braised pork shoulder in Chianti sauce, slow-roasted lamb shank..

Reviews and Ratings

Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This tasty red blend is made from 70% Sangiovese and 30% Merlot grapes making it a versatile full bodied wine. Aromas and flavours of ripe dark berries and chocolate. It was great paired with a sausage topped wood oven pizza.
The 2013 vintage of this full-bodied Italian red wine is a blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Merlot grapes. Firm tannins. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
