This is a very nice red wine from Tuscany , Italy that is a blend of Sangiovese, merlot and carbernet sauvignon. I love this wine and will buy it over and over again. Great price for the quality. Easy to drink, medium-bodied and is a perfect blend of 3 nice grapes. Goes well with cheese, and BBQ.
In my opinion, the 2006 vintage was much better. The 2007 vintage tastes like a young wine with a little bit of green tannin in the background and may benefit for another 2-3 years in the cellar. Would recommend decanting for at least an hour before drinking. Tasted June 2012
After the tasty 2006, the 2007 comes across as decidedly nondescript. The wine tastes and smells like a slightly confused sangiovese, without any character that stands out. the wine is not complex, nor does it have any of the penetrating characteristics found in Super-Tuscans (as per its ad.) Under a more conventional rating scale where 85 is akin to 'ok', this would have rated higher, but here 80 is pegged as 'good.' A decent value at $8, but not in the class of $9 southern italians from the LCBO general list. Tasted July 2011.
