Natalie's Score: 89/100
Ah, the taste of maturity, complexity and contemplation. What a lovely Italian red wine for the money. Aromas of dried herbs, leather, earth and cigar box. This is a library/den wine where you fall asleep with the book splayed over your nose in a shaft of early evening window light.
Perfect Pasta and Tomato Sauce Wine

|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
With aromas of leather, herbs, violet, lavender, and a little dark cherry, this a a great wine for those tired of new world wines with over-the-top fruit. A silky mouth-feel, a little bit of tannin, and a tart cherry taste make this a great sipping wine, or something to have with a cheese and meat platter.
|Claudio Sicoli rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
A lovely Tuscan Blend of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cab.Sauvignon and 5% Merlot. You don’t find many Italian wines that provides a screw cap bottle, but this particular wine boasts some dried berries on the nose a hint of oak and spiciness on the palate. A nice medium-full bodied wine that we had with a really nice pork roast and veggies but it’ll pair well with meats, cheeses, pizzas and pastas.
Available at the LCBO at $15.95.
|The smooth, full-bodied Tuscany red wine is a blend of 85% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot grapes. Consultant Neil Empson and winemaker Franco Bernabei blend grapes grown on Tuscan hillsides, age this wine one year n oak barrels and another 6 months in the bottle before releasing it. Try it with hard cheeses and game meats. - Community Wine Reviews|
