Vola Sangiovese Umbria 2010

Vola Sangiovese 2012Purchased from Trader Joes, $2.49

Aaron:  This had a musky berry smell featuring long-fermented oak; I readily equated this to an old, stone cellar.  The dark pepper flavor was a bit bitter with green leaves and young oak dominating the flavor. I felt this was fairly traditional and not that great, but it was only $2.49…  87 points

Teri: Don’t let the earthy nose deter you from this bottle. There is still an earthy mineral taste in its flavor but has some strong underlying fruit. This bottle would blend well with many meals with its flavors of rhubarb and plum mixed with its mineral and oak tones. 89 points
