Casal Thaulero Sangiovese 2007

Date August 5, 2008 | Chuck | Italy & Red Wine & Sangiovese

Cruising the isles looking for another IGT overachiever, I bought this bottle. While I wouldn't make it a favourite, it was worth the $7.10 I paid for it. It was a medium wine all the way from mouthfeel to tannins.
This wine is good, but if you're looking for sangiovese; be sure to try the nosnob favourite by: Farnese

Castelmonte Cent'are Nero d'Avola 2005

Date June 24, 2008 | Chuck | Italy & Nero d'Avola & Red Wine

Although we don't see much Nero d'Avola on the shelves at the time of this writing, if enough people catch on to this well priced big red, there may be a shift in the winds. This Sicilian wine is made entirely from Nero d'Avola and has made the LCBO's Vintages Essentials collection seemingly out of nowhere.
Take note of these up and coming IGT Classification wines, they're tomorrow's favourites.
