Medium garnet in the glass. I found the nose a tad shy - it must have seen its shadow. Medium body with cherry, red berry, tomato, a suggestion of vanilla and almond. It has a savoury finish and good length. Tannins are moderate and acidity is tart making it food friendly. A nice smooth rosso but a bit thin, which for me keeps the score below 90. March 2014.

Typical Sangiovese flavours or sour cherry fruit, hints of dry earth and finishing with hints of vanilla. Nothing really wrong with the wine, just seems a bit light and simple, especially for the vintage and the $20 price tag. Tasted Feb 2014.
