Gocce di Vino Merlot

A non-vintage wine, this Italian red comes from Puglia. It exhibits none of the bitter element that one so often finds in the cheaper Merlots; it has a nice blend of red cherry and plum elements, with a finish that has a hint of licorice. A fairly nice buy at $8.99.

Just picked some up in Pittsburgh and really like it. Had it on a full stomach at lunch and got buzzed with about 1 oz! Not as bitter as most wines in this price range.
