If you've had Chinato, then surely you have been blessed, but the paisans (Italians) also make a plethora of other spicy reds, most notably with tastes of nutmeg, cinnamon or coriander.

This medium bodied wine is strong and intense, and outside of the spice, it has a very earthy taste on your palate.

For those that have had crappy reds which give them heartburn and what not, this is one to definitely add to the list of acceptable reds that will not only comfort and caress, but make your dreams come true.

We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
