Tasting Notes

An unoaked Tuscan red wine that comes in a liter bottle and is meant to be enjoyed immediately. The wine was aged in cement tanks for 6 months before bottling. The fruit on the palate is fresh and accessible. If ever there were a pizza wine, this is it.

Staff Pick Notes

A perfect bottle for any kind of groovy house party. I mean, check it out—it's a liter! Bright fruit notes akin to the mixed berry massacre of a mom-packed Ziploc bag full of fruit that's withstood the running, jumping, and other physical activities of your first grade days. This wine is a perfect pair for summertime. It feels like a sundown beach party as the bright ruby liquid dances on your tongue.

Sangiovese has shown itself in recent years to be an excellent...

Tuscany

When you think of Tuscan wine, think of Sangiovese, the grape that is common to most great Tuscan reds (Vernaccia is the only white wine made here). Brunello di Montalcino, one of the most complex expressions of Sangiovese, has the best aging potential. Vino Nobile di Montepulciano shows the softer side of the grape, containing up to 20% of other varieties. Young Chianti often smells of fresh...
