MY RATING: 9/10
IN A NUTSHELL: A delightfully different wine
ORIGIN: Italy (Sangiovese di Romagna)
SAQ PRICE: $20.25
My faith is slowly being restored in Italian red wines. I was never much of a fan, because I tend to only like dark, bold, spicy reds. However, this is delicious and it keeps you guessing. I had to keep tasting it and smelling it to be able to describe it. Let’s just say it has something like almond essence on the nose. It starts off with a funky berry and licorice taste, then finishes with some spice and vanilla. It is lovely and warming – a perfect wine to drink while reading a book in front of a roaring fire on a winter’s day.
