Nice little red wine here, and when you factor in the price it's a great buy. It remains essentially Italian with...

A great value wine that is soft with a lively acidity that makes it really food friendly. Earthy aromas are accompanied by plum, cassis, currant, coffee, tart black cherry, oak and even some violets peek out of the glass. Very dry with more currant and dark fruits. Soft tannins on the medium length finish but it's been hiding away for about 16 months. Enjoyed with meat pasta & tasted May 2014.

Dark chocolate, coffee, prunes, and spices on the nose. It has lots of ripe fruit with softening tannins and is medium-bodied. Excellent value.

Simple house wine.
Lack of fruits in bouquet and palate.
Would not drink on it's own, it's too sour.

Will NOT buy this wine again.
