If someone is seeking to find an honest wine below $10 capable of offering some character of the country it is from, this wine will do it. Simple and straightforward, yes, but still pleasing. Fresh acid with chewy tannins and bright notes of sour cherries and a hint of tomato and dried herbs. A more than acceptable wine to buy if you are trying to entertain a big crowd and cannot spend a fortune. Ideal for Spaghetti alla Bolognese.
