This is a special post for my brother in New Brunswick ... we just drove 11.5 hours and I stopped to get a special red to go with my PIZZA tonight .... he wanted a "personal" posting!!
This particular Italian red was very smooth and had a very rich color. It had a dark berry aroma and a hint of chocolate. The tannins were evident (tingling on the front of the tongue) and went VERY good with the meat pizza!
A solid 8/10 and look Dave ... under 8$ here in Ontario!!!
