Lots of red fruit, not overly tannic. Seems to hit just the right spot. Drank it over 3 days with 3 different meals: spaghetti, boneless chicken wings, and enchiladas. Worked well with all three but probably best with the spaghetti, then the enchiladas. Bottle did not deteriorate over the 3 days.
Solid, fruit forward yet rich and chewy wine crying out for grilled steak and peppers. For the price ($9) it's a no-brainer. Very Italian, very good. I've enjoyed everything I've had from Farina. Apparently the 2009 is a even fruitier and gets rid of some of the tight-wound-ness and chewy meat/mushroom flavors.
Day 2: Softened beautifully, retaining a lot of the fruit but shedding the meat. Much more nicely integrated.
