Well it’s been at least 1000 days (2.74 years) since I first saw this cheese advertised and now, when I’ve finally found it in Trader Joe’s cheese cases.

The first taste is sort of tannic, fruity and watery at the same time. All in all, it’s not a taste that’s impressive. Neither is it a taste that’s abusive.
There are several firsts for me with this coffee.
For $1.50 more and a couple of years more aging I was expecting great things from this wine in comparison to its IGT little brother recently tasted (Grifone Sangiovese IGT 2013). What I got was at least $1.50 better wine. But that’s not a bad thing, and just points out how good little brother is.
Pretty darn good for $4.49 at Trader Joe’s. This is an IGT classified wine, which just represents that the wine/grapes come from the specified region of Italy (Puglia in this case) and meet the other IGT specifications. It’s a lesser designation than a DOC designation. Well, it may not be up to the DOC requirements, but it’s still a pretty good wine and certainly worth the $4.49 price.
