Carlo Rossi's Paisano is my every-day table wine. Is it superb? No. Is it very good? Yes. It goes with just about anything, and adding a little sweet lemonade in summer makes a pleasant sangria-like drink. It's a staple in my house.

I would say 90% of the italian population in Memphis Tn,have paisano wine in their homes. It is very much like the homemade wine a lot of us grew up around when our fathers and grandfathers made it.It was introduced as a wine to cover that need years ago. For the price it is as good as it gets

I think the charm in this Paisano is simply nostalgic to me. It is the closest thing I've had on a store shelf to my late uncle's home made wine. I've introduced this to many friends, and while the conversation continues, the bottle slowly disappears.

Good as an informal table wine. I wish it were slightly less sweet.

In reply to Guiseppino, acidic does not equal vinegary. Yes, Gallo's burgundy has more acidic bite than you'd expect for a normal California wine. If you are more familiar with Italian table wines, whether Sangiovese, Merlot, Nero d'Avola, or more obscure grapes in basis, this blended red will make you feel right at home. No, it's not gourmet wine for swirling and sniffing, but it's food-friendly across a wide range. Tonight, I made some pasta with a mushroom cream sauce. The wine went in for a simmer, and accompanied the dish as well. Nothing is better than pairing the wine you drink with the wine in the sauce. The acidity plus deep fruit were a nice complement to the richness of cream, earthiness of mushrooms and sweet bite of sweated onions. mmmm.

With Bing cherry flavor and a firm fruit texture that recalls the skin of a ripe plum, this is built for beer-can chicken and roasted potatoes.

Surprise, surprise! this light ruby-colored wine is off-dry, with surprisingly good fruit, an agreeable cherry, Beaujolais-like nose, light to medium body and a clean finish without excessive quantities of cloying residual sugar. There is vibrancy and liveliness to this ldquo;Burgundyrdquo;. This wine offers considerable value, but purchasers are advised to serve it in more handsome carafes than its original packaging.

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker's notes: "With its medium-to-full body, our Cabernet Sauvignon offers enticing flavors, ranging from dark plum to delicate hints of oak and spice."

Tasting Notes:

This sweet, well-balanced wine is light to medium-bodied. Lively red fruit flavors, complemented by fresh floral accents, lead to a crisp finish.

<p><span style="color: #000000; font-family: arial; line-height: normal; font-size: small;">From the Carlo Rossi Reserve Collection, this Chardonnay has subtle hints of apple, pear and oak. It goes well with cheese and fruit platters.</span></p>
