Wine Review: My Practical Party Case faithful are frequently challenging me to come up with a Very Good red wine for $10 to $15. So here it is. This ruby red blend from Tuscany is that perfect everyday, easy to drink, affordable option. This wine opens with a light cherry like bouquet. On the palate, light to medium bodied wine is round, easy going, not overly complex, but delivers very tasty black cherry like flavors. The finish is dry, soft, and lingers slightly. This wine would pair very nicely with either veal or chicken parmagianna. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Color: Intense ruby red. Bouquet: Fragrant, with dark fruit and floral nuances. Taste: Medium-bodied, with black cherry and tart plum flavors and hints of spice.
