With great anticipation that I was about to partake of a 2008 Wine Spectator Top 100 wine, I was somewhat taken aback by the simple, wine-stained label and the "Imported by Southern Wine Distributors" as the only textual information. It was straight downhill from there. While the aroma was vaguely floral, the taste was faded and monotone. It tasted like a wine too young to drink, which is an endnote in the WS review (best after 2009). Again I am struck that sangiovese, like merlot, offers few good wines for under $20. One can get a mediocre sangiovese for much less.
