February 3, 2011 - Aromas and flavors of strawberry, cranberry and some sour cherry. Medium bodied and bright tasting. ($10)

September 10, 2008 - Surprisingly good negociant wine from Trader Joe's. It's hard to find any Barolo or Barbaresco at quintuple the $7 price. Some initial funkyness blew off. Some heat remained, but otherwise there was some interesting leathery cherry action. The attack and finish are excellent here with just a hint of sweetness and a soft, dry finish. The acidity is just right to go with food, too. The opposite of a generic, flabby fruit bomb in the same price range; this is a good thing!
