Pretty basic. Undeniable sweetness on the palate brightens up the fruit, but the finish is too bittersweet for me....

Fruité et Généreux. Vin de couleur rubis plutôt intense. Nez qui dégage des arômes de petits fruits rouges, d'épices, de réglisse et de tabac. Laissez-vous charmer par ce rouge sec possédant une agréable fraîcheur et doté de tanins étoffés. Il a une texture ample et une finale assez persistante.

It's only wine but I like it

As always, a simple southern Italian red. Straightforward, no BS wine with ripe jammy fruit in a typically rustic style. Something seems to have changed compared to prior years -this vintage, the wine came off as being a bit sweet. A quick look on the LCBO site reveals that this wine a 12g/L residual sugar. Was it this sweet in prior vintages? Serve with a decent chill to tone down that sweetness. Not really my style. Getting a bit too commercial. Tasted Nov 2014.
