I got this wine from the bargain bin marked down from $21.99. It is a blend of 60% Sangiovese, 20% Syrah, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and it is considered a Super Tuscan, which accounts for the price that is normally out of my range. It has a potent aroma and a flavor that starts very fruity and ends very tart. This is my first Super Tuscan and I’ll keep trying them but I’m not a huge fan yet. I do like
Italian wines so I’ll stay on the case. The tartness at the end makes this wine seem quite light on the palate because you usually don’t find that kind of tartness in a red wine, usually it’s found in white wines. As I made my way through the bottle the flavor grew on me but it’s still not worth the original asking price in my opinion.
