My Rating 82 Points.  
Price $14.

Dirty Ruby in color with a purplish Rim.

Fruity on the nose with cherries, plums, blueberries, earth, forest floor, sweet strawberries, spices, licorice, oak, dark chocolates and black pepper.

Dry and fruity on the palate, with blackberries, cherries, blueberries, licorice, caramel, vanilla, oak, dirt, earth and peppercorn.

Full bodied and round, with medium plus acidity.

Medium Plus on the finish with big, firm tannins and spices.

An easy drinking Sangiovese blend with 15% Syrah.
Good by itself, yet simple and basic. Nicely balanced and enjoyable with Italian food.
