Prounounced “San-joh-vay-say,” this Italian wine varietal is Tuscany’s #1 red wine grape.

I wasn't analyzing the wine too closely, but it was a good enough value for the price. When paired with a tomato based pasta sauce, it went well, on it's own the acidity was a bit much, but not undrinkable. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    A pretty good meal wine. Drinking it while having a red sauced pasta brings out the flavor more. Also, I prefer this slightly chilled, Im not sure how others would drink it. Read More
