Good Cheap Italian Wind

4 stars for the price and taste

Haven't tried the 2005... but the 2006 on the other-hand...

Ok, so this is a review of the 2006 (not the 2005). That said...with a vibrant, fruity nose (think cherries with a slight herbal note), the following palatte does not disappoint either. Soft, lush fruit are nicely complimented with a touch of tannins (bonus: great finish). I'm the type of wine-drinker that would enjoy this bottle by itself it's so good, but red sauce pasta dishes are excellent food pairings too!

Liked 2005 Sangiovese

Haven't tried this one

gwu$20 rates excellent qpr; pasta pizza wine!! buy 2

had on boat anchored out w/ chix, pasta chs dish. maybe not the best pairing but this is a solid everyday wine at 9.50 it's a must buy. need to have this w/ pasta/pizza

Have not had 2005, but....

Based on the 2003 and 2004, and based on 2005 being among the finest vintages in history for the region, I'm amazed by the 1-star rants I'm seeing here. And in general RP agrees, so I'm not our i left field. I generally find this to be a nice, rich blend with some dark fruit and almost no rough edges - truly remarkable at the price. I guess i have to get a bottle of the 2005 and see for myself. G

Ok for a cheapie

Kind of flabby, but some nice fruit. Wed. night pasta wine.

This 2005 was disappointing, even at such a low price. I should have known better but I felt bad for the guy at the winery and this was the least bad tasting wine of the bunch, except for the $45 bottle that was not much better. After opening up, it's somewhat drinkable.

Pretty bad!

Thin, bland. Will not be in my wine rack.

balancing the shill

At eight bucks this wine was quite overpriced. I'm giving it one star to balance out the obvious shill who rated it 5.
