    August 18, 2015 - very tasty, full body with just the right amount of sweetness, would definitely buy again. worth the 50 bucks as many others are not.

    January 30, 2014 - Year in and year out Altamura is one of the best Sangiovese producers in CA. The 2008 vintage is no exception. A little pricey, but a fun, flavorful and crowd pleasing wine.
