Farnese Sangiovese

The house red lives. I’ve been recommending this wine for 5 years now and will continue to do so. This is the bottle that I always keep stock of because not only is it an amazing wine for $8.95 but it’s a crowd pleaser that’s very versatile.
This also comes in a large format bottle (1.5L)
