If you are herb lover here's your red. This shows a very lifted, savoury nose of rosemary, rhubarb and cassis. It’s...

A fruity midweight, very typical Tuscan red that will be a good food wine for pizza and pasta. Aromas and flavours of...

Fullish, juicy, modern style nose with ripe black fruit, though the palate reveals only basic depth and intensity....

This supple Tuscan red sold out so fast when it was released last October that Vintages reordered thousands of cases....

A very pleasant, elegant, aromatic Tuscany blend of Sangiovese, with a little Carbernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Easy to drink, and good to go with Italian food. Bottle comes with screw cap which is easy to open and re-cap if you can't finish the whole bottle at once. Excellent price/performance ratio.

I enjoyed this.

Good valued everyday wine.

Light-medium bodied ("full bodied"??). Cherries and licorice(!) on the nose. Red berries and some herbality on the palate.

Is herbality a word? Now it is.

Very easy to drink, pretty well balanced with more going on than you'd expect.

Fine tannin an good acidity make this a good all round food wine...pizza, pasta...whatever.

Pretty bottle too.

This has some staying power but don't bother cellaring it...I suspect will likely turn soft and boring and lose the slight edginess it has now which I like.

Not sure I get this one and all the great reviews. Quite a nice, silky texture, but rather thin with a short finish and very little complexity. Okay value, but I've had better even at this price.
