Oakland – $5.99 – 13%
When I purchased the two different Bivio wines from GO my hope was one of them would be alright, and I was guessing this would be the one since it cost $1 more! I’d seen both wines at BevMo before, so I was hopeful.
Low and behold, this one is clearly better. Where as the Chianti (reviewed below) is terrible, this red is a pretty good every day red Italian wine.
It’s fruit forward with nice cherry tones, a peppery mid-palate, with a simple finish, maybe light tannins. It’s not a serious wine, but at $6 it’s worth having around. You can definitely do worse.
