“As far as value goes, this one is unbeatable, showing a level of complexity that’s unusual at this price, making it a top choice for everyday drinking and beyond.
The wine is notable for its earthiness, including aromas of mushroom and forest floor, and its spicy, dark-berry fruit. There’s an intriguing black licorice note on the finish. This is a pure expression of the fruit, as aging takes place in stainless steel vats with no exposure to oak. It was a perfect match for a tomato-and-meat sauce over pasta.”
