A curiosity that delivers surprising decent quality.
Nose: Dusty, cassis and surprising fancy violet notes.
Palate: follows the dusty theme ( this grows in a desert, after all), some dark berries, a little lean, mid acid, mid tannins (so a decanting doesnt hurt).
Finish: meh, a little dusty, earthy.
Decent quality for the price.
From the south of Italy, a nice cheap treat. Pizza and BBQ kinda wine. One of the cheapest bottles in the LCBO. Yet it will surprise you.
Nose: Herbaceous, some black fruit. Nothing too special, but its decent
Palate: follows nose. A bit hollow (meaning needs more juice), but well made enough, medium tannins, not too ripe.
Finish: Short, a touch herbs.
Overall, decent for what you pay. Available everywhere, part of LCBO’s general list.

Another cheap and cheerful offer from Italy. Wont make you any friends, but wont make people wanna shank you. Maybe the morning after, but you should be long gone by then.
Nose: Green, medicinal, a little red fruits (red plum, rasp).
Palate: High acid, mid tannins, some red fruit (plum). Decent body. Winey in a not that great way, but grows into you.
Finish: meh, not all that great.
Overall? decent for the price, but dont bring to someones home as a gift. Spend a little more and pick something else.
Good for cooking, though, or a house party where no-one will remember the wine.

Interesting little treat from an unusual region of Spain. LCBO discounted this gem heavily, I think I paid $10 for this bottling.
