De Tenuta Sant'Antimo. 13% abv. I tried this twice within a week from a wine station dispenser at The Wine Cafe in downtown Fayetteville, NC. Garnet color with transparency. Cherry nose. Cherries and pomegranates on the palate. Rather short finish but an inviting light-bodied wine (surprised that the wine shop owner and another reviewer on CellarTracker both described it as having body.) Bright, fruity, uplifted note. Could be a nice warm-weather wine with duck breast or ham. I was more inclined to purchase it after the first tasting--decided after the second tasting to forego this wine in favor of Odisea Wine Company Veritable Quandary red blend from California.
