What I like about wine:

There is a psychological element to drinking wine. The people around you, setting, day of the week and even the weather can guide and enhance my wine drinking experience. When everything comes together with that great glass it's a memorable event.

    If this isn't the perfect summer red I don't know what is. Big earthy bouquet with cedar and oak notes and a dark ruby red almost purple color. This gets you interested in the contents. Ripe fruit with a thick mouth fell at the start then it thins out quickly into a lighter enjoyable finish. The finish is fresh and and low commitment. You could sip this by the pool, at a friends BBQ or even with a well prepared dinner and it would fit into all occasions.

    Drinks very much like a dry Riesling. I hate Riesling but for people that do like that style this wine is a winner. Fruity smooth and lightly sweet. I hate Riesling.

    Antinori Villa Toscana 2010
    Sold Out $21.99
    2011 vintage available for $21.99
    Style: Earth & Spicy
    Anyone expecting more out of a $15 bottle is crazy. This is a great, yea, great wine at this price. Deep ruby color, looks hearty coming out of the bottle. Big bouquet with dark fruit, oak and vanilla after about one hour of air. A bit too much mouth puckering tannin on the initial taste but the finish is right on with a long earthy finish showing the oak again. Ok so it's a little heavy on tannin but at 15 bucks there is no problem here.
