    A savory, light- to medium-bodied red, with notes of cured tobacco and singed orange peel layered with flavors of bright currant fruit. Grippy tannins firm the finish. Drink now.

    "The 2014 Montefalco Rosso shows a dark color with veins of garnet and crimson. The bouquet is a bit flat and less expressive, yet the wine is well-made and steady nonetheless. On the close, you get earthy spice and dried cherry."

    A soft, velvety-textured red with ripe-berry and sliced-plum character. Just a hint of chocolate too. A full body and an enjoyable, chewy finish. Drink now.
