Fantastic!

Anthony

Best Italian wine!

James

Sardinian red wine

"It's a great wine, especially for the price."

Bert

Great alternate red

"This red from Sardinia is a wonderful medium bodied red reminiscent of Chianti. Plenty of nice fruit and light spice perfect for a classic Italian meal or seafood. The price seals the deal."

Ira

Sardegna Reaerv

"Excellent wine. And a great value"

Lauren

Had it at a restaurant and loved it so bought a case at a great rate!

David

Excellent Wine

"I first had this wine at an upscale restaurant in Ann Arbor. I looked for it online and found it a Empire Wine. It's an extraordinary value at $10/bottle. I would characterize it as a medium body, but nicely complex wine."

Randy

Sella & Mosca Connanau

"A wonderful full bodied wine great with red meat."

Annette

private review

Gasper

Not a heavy wine but more body then Chianti or Pino Noir

Marilyn

Reliable taste and high in resveratol

"I purchase this wine regularly because it is a good staple for "everyday" drinking and it has a high level of resveratol, which is supposed to be healthful. Full bodied, fairly smooth wine."

Donald

Pleasent and slightly unsal fiinish.

"I found this wine to to have a really peculiar finish as if it was aged in the orvice of a horse. I can see where some might take to this style of bite. It's just didn't spake my fancy."
