Clear, bright red. High toned, fruity nose, some anise and herbal notes. Medium-light body. Sour cherry, cranberry and herbal flavours. Some tannin, decent acidity. Though a bit rustic and lacking concentration and complexity, this is an honest everyday Italian table wine. A good, inexpensive alternative to bottom shelf Chianti.

I've paid more for worse. I often have several bottle of Mezzomondo wines on hand to cook with (and, of course, sip as I stir).

If, like me, you like wine that's more savory than sweet, no one does 'cheap' wine better than Italy.

Much like this winery's other offering, I find this vino rustic and homey with gulpable appeal for its budget price. A pleasant everyday wine to accompany basic foods like pizza and pasta. Also good for cooking and deglazing to add depth of flavour to your sauces and rich stews. I'd never discard it!
