Wine Review: “A blend of Sangiovese and Merlot with a touch of Primitivo and Negroamaro. It will remind those who have traveled to Italy of one of the local house wines they consumed while there.  Simple, juicy, and perfect for drinking with or without food, it’s packed with bright cherry, strawberry and cranberry fruit aromas and flavors.”
My Review: Garnet in color, medium bodied.  Aromas of strawberry and raspberry jam, and chocolate.  Tastes of strawberry and acid, and astringent on the tongue.
