Expert Reviews
  • Wine & Spirits
    A silky, stylish vino da tavola from Tuscany, combining rich, dark cherry, plum and cassis characteristics from Cabernet with smooth texture and subtle spiciness from Sangiovese. Utterly refined and polished in a super-Tuscan style, this wine will pair nicely with spaghetti Bolognesi, but it has the class to match prime rib.
