Grifone Sangiovese IGT – 2013 – Wine Review – Trader Joe’s

Grifone Sangiovese 2013

Grifone Sangiovese 2013

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.


Coffee-Off – Medium Roasts – Food Review


TJ_TarrazuCoffeeCoffee is the new wine.  Actually it’s been that way for some time now.  Where there used to be several national brands and a few regional brands which all delivered a pretty satisfactory cup of Joe in the morning to get the day going, there is now a bewildering array of “specialty” brands, blends and bedlam.  To complement this there is also a bewildering lexicon of creative befuddlement which ultimately takes your mind off the fact that you may actually be drinking a fairly bad cup of coffee.
