We'll turn to my dinner in a moment, but for the wine tonight I picked out one of my old time favorites, the 2009 Il Bastardo Rosso di Toscana, a lighter red wine from Tuscany which would pair very well with my dinner. Plus it has to have one of my favorite labels of all time, Il Bastardo himself, relaxing with a glass of his wine, oh how I can identify with this man! The wine itself as I said was on the lighter side, with a clear ruby color and a nose of light fruit, leather and a touch of cedar. The taste is quite dry, with a hint of ripe fruit, very few tannins and an exceptionally dry finish. This wine would pair well with so many dishes, from steaks to roasts, to chicken and fish. So what am I pairing it with tonight? Steamed lobster with drawn butter and corn on the cob! A real New England holiday meal in the Midwest, though it also reminds me of back in college when the Civil Air Patrol sold Maine lobsters for like $5 each as a fundraiser, so every fall when we got back on campus we'd have our annual lobster fest! So back to the wine, it's not all that impressive, but it did make that Lobster come alive with flavor, and for $8, how can you complain about Il Bastardo? With that label alone, I give this wine a solid 3!

I recently discovered this wine at my local wine merchant, and it was a nice surprise for under $10! A smooth, easy drinking everyday red that complements a variety of dishes, and the label just kills me! Every time I look at that fat bastardo I just crack up!

This is a great table wine for the price. The palate is not complicated and tastes of cherry and strawberry. Additionally, the label is pretty rad. Read our full review here: http://goo.gl/TezxHL

Dark ruby in color, the wine's black-cherry aroma is typical of Sangiovese. A hint of earthiness gives a roughness around the edges of the rather simple fruit flavor.
