Natalie's Score: 86/100

The grapes are grown in sun-drenched Tuscany. Sole means "sourced from the sun." Lovely berry ripeness with a tangy finish. A blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon to produce a medium-bodied supple wine. Terrific value for the money.

Sangiovese Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: roast chicken, barbecued spare ribs, seared tuna, pasta bolognese.
