Villa Santera had a deep red color that goes towards purple. On the nose, I smelled very little vanilla and nothing. The palate had aggressive, unpleasing tannins and strong alcohol notes while being very dry. So we sat there and thought: "What can we do with this wine? It's undrinkable". We decided to chill it down to around 8°C and gave the wine a second chance. I know it's rather unusual to chill red wines like this but we didn't know what else to do with it. Second try: There were aromas of vanilla and a bit of ginger. There was also a bit of red fruit. That was much better than when we first tried it but by the time we gave the wine his second chance we were already done with dinner but oh well. After taking a sip, the wine seemed to have less aggressive tannins. Villa Santera remained dry. There were still too many unpleasing tannins though. I started to taste a bit of chocolate. The finish was short. Chilling the wine helped a bit. It tasted a bit like a low-quality South-Italian dessert wine.

Dry, mellow. Light pepper flavor. Nice for a classic Italian dinner. I had it with antipasti: prosciutto, sweet sopressatta, tangy cow's milk cheeses, crostini. Perfect match.
