Red grapes produce an amazing array of red wine types: from the boldest, heartiest big reds, to elegant and structured dry red wines, to sweet and simple picnic sippers. So much depends on where grapes are from and what the winemaker does with them, but the most important factor is the variety of the grape itself.

Piedmonte, 2009. Italy.
Price: $ 9.95 13.0% Alcohol/Vol.
By: Etablissements Paul Boutinot
Piedmonte is home to some of Italy’s most expensive and long lived wines. However, there are classy cheap wines to be had, like this one.
‘Light and juicy indeed’, as promised by the label. Dark berries, and a touch of smoke and pepper on the nose. Same for the palate. Nice, juicy, uncomplicated.
Design snobs will appreciate the sharp label, rather easy on the eyes and just enough nostalgia to make it work.
Definitely a wine for BBQ’s: very decent for the price, easy to drink, interesting enough, and everyone will like it.

So you think organic wines are too rich for your blood? Not anymore! Delight yourself with this Italian libation. Though I am not a doctor, guaranteed less hangovers and headaches.
Plus its the right thing to do for the planet. No need to give up small pleasures.

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.
