Farnese Sangiovese Daunia 2006

This sangiovese is very well structured for a wine priced under 8 dollars a bottle.  Another nice feature of Italian wines is that they’re easy to pair with food, Italian food. Them’s the rules…I don’t make ’em ­čÖé
For another excellent value try this vino by Spinelli ( however we do find the Farnese more refined ).  What adds to this bottle’s attractivness is it’s high availability, price point and the wide range of foods it pairs with.
Tip: buy a magnum, it’s great even after being left open on the counter for a day
