This beautiful wine is abysmally deep and tastes as dark as night. Initially dominated by dark fruit, it grows increasingly complex.  It’s powerful too. The warmth from this wine could put a smile on anyone’s face. It actually makes you feel as though you are sitting around the dinner table with your wildly gesticulating Italian family. I love it.  The finish transitions spectacularly from voluptuous to bone dry. It leaves you with a thirst that must be quenched by another sip.

Price: $7.99

(update: I checked the price and it was lower than I remembered. Buy, buy, buy!)
