Made in Italy and then imported to California, this wine has a slightly more “old world” smell to it. It’s funny how after a while you start to recognize characteristics of regions and how different countries make wine differently. This isn’t anything new to a wine connoisseur, but it’s a transitional novelty to the individual nevertheless. Like when you get a few years out of college and realize one day that different beers taste really different and Busch Light actually isn’t good. So let’s call this wine the Busch Light of the old country. Cheap and accessible but not good. The flavor is thin and simple. First fruit then it turns to mild tannins then it turns into unnecessary calories. You can do better.
