From the bottle:
“Toscana Rosso is a typical Tuscan red that has been around for centuries. The climate coupled with the calcium rich soil gives the wine its full body and long lingering finish.Indicazione Geografica Tipica is the second of four classifications of wine recognized by the Italian Government created in recognition of high quality wines known as ‘Super Tuscans’. Aquila d’Oro Toscana has a ruby red color, with a fruity nose and dry, well balanced in the mouth with a pleasant lingering finish. It pairs well with pizza, pasta, salads, cheeses or own its own. Store in a cool dry place, serve at room temperature. 12.5% alcohol.”
$3.99 might not seem like much money, but you still want to get what you pay for right? If so, skip the 2009 Aquila d’Oro Toscana. There’s really nothing horrible about it, except that there’s really not much of anything at all. It has an aroma of dark cherries and earthiness, but tastes watered down and sour and then just disappears with no finish to speak of. Spend $1 more and grab the DnA Benefactor Cellars, the Spiral Wine Cabernet Sauvignon, or the Archeo Nero d’Avola, all at Trader Joe’s for $4.99.
