IN A NUTSHELL: A sticky, pruny, dessert-wine-like Cab Sav

ORIGIN: Italy (Terre di Chieti)

VARIETALS: Sangiovese – Cabernet Sauvignon

SAQ PRICE: $17.35

This is a tasty and much sweeter-than-expected wine. It is both sweet and spicy, with lots of prune and vanilla happening. It is a nice winter wine, and may even be a nice pairing with a blue cheese or a sweet & spicy dessert. It is so dark and sticky that it reminds me of a fortified red. Delicious, but it definitely makes the teeth turn blue!
