Nice cherry flavors. Easy to drink on its own or with a variety of food. Overall, an excellent Sangiovese that would pair well with most types of food. I plan on reordering this one.       -16 Points

Dark color, fruity and spicy smell. In the month it has a wonderful fruity taste of cherries and citrus. A great complex finish and it was terrific with risotto and bread from the bakery. Was also great with home fries and dungeness crab dipped in melted butter.      -16 Points

Rich, full plum flavor with an excellent middle and back of tongue. So good, we ordered more!       - 16 Points
