Taste

Chianti-esque on the nose and in a blind-tasting that’s probably what I would have guessed it was.
Lots of red cherry, plum, toasted oak and dried herbs. Medium in body (which is no surprise, since Sangiovese and Montepulciano nearly always make medium-bodied wines), with vanilla, anise and some barnyardy aromas. One I’d buy again, and particularly important if you’re to venture out of your comfort zone. But hey, if you don’t like it, you can always rub down your horse with it! [If you skipped through this review straight to the tasting note, that last comment is going to absolutely make no sense at all…]

 

Pairing

Think “rustic Italian”….and I’ll leave it at that.

 

Price

$16
