“Pale ruby in color, with deep red berry aromas, jasmine, honeysuckle, and terrifically creamy on the mid-palate, giving way to more tart flavors and a bracing acid-finish with a kiss of candied minerality.”
“Aged in French oak barriques, this 100 percent Merlot packs a bottle full of pleasure from the pop of the cork. Shimmering ruby in color with garnet hues, ripe and juicy black raspberry fruit oozes while vanilla bean notes kissed by sweet tobacco and plum jam rounds out a great wine, just barely hinting at black truffle on the finish.”
Italy's Top Wines Under $20 - Top winemaker Riccardo Cotarella makes this juicy, eminently drinkable Umbrian Sangiovese, rich with berry flavors. A few months in French oak before it's released adds light notes of anise and savory spice.
