    September 26, 2021 - Italian restaurant purchase. Wine has some fruit and earth, but overall really simple. It’s an Italian table wine.

    September 9, 2021 - I have to agree with some of the previous comments. It is a harsh and astringent wine which hides the fruit.
    Compared with the 2015 Villa Antinori chianti classico riserva, drank before, it is a very poor relation

    August 27, 2021 - Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Syrah, Merlot, and Petit Verdot.

    Deep dark purple all the way through. Compact rim. Youthful and quite clean.

    Aromas of red cherry, menthol, burnt caramel toffee, violet, floral notes.

    The palate is soft but dense. Medium plus acidity, Medium plus body. Taste of slightly underripe blackberry, tart dark cherry, cassis. Midpalate is a bit short. Finish strong on the vanilla, vanilla bean, caramel undertone.

    This is far from ready. Quite disjointed as it is. Leave it a couple of years to ensure that the different components calm down and integrate with each other. 86.

    August 19, 2021 - Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Syrah

    Medium to full body, bright ruby color. Intense wild fruits, flowers and sweet spices’ box aroma. Following by same palate of black cherry, plum and juicy finish. Fertile and bold, well balanced and complex enough, berries’ acidity and silky tannins. Food friendly, well pairing to tomato and sweet pepper stew with goat cheese bolls. Serve 18ºC - 20ºC. Open one hour ahead. Drink now and next four years.

    August 12, 2021 - Skip it!
    This might be the worst wine I've ever had from Italy.
    Obvious manipulation.
    Rough, but cheaply so. Paid $22. Obviously overpaid from the Utah State Liquor Store.

    Don't buy.
    Skip this.

    There are PLENTY of incredible under $20 wines.
