2003 Villadoria Fagiano Rosso “Red Pheasant” Langhe - Deep purple-red in color. Nose of dark berry, cherry, thyme, and floral notes. Flavors of dark berry, cherry, licorice, and a touch of mineral. This is a lighter-bodied wine. The texture is very smooth initially, followed by some light and fine-grained tannins. There is some acidity, it finishes a little on the quick side, but the finish is clean, and the flavor is quite nice overall. A very simple drink-me-now quaffer that, while not terribly thought-provoking, was tasty and cheap enough at $9.99 to warrant purchasing again for weeknight meals. According to their website, this is a Dolcetto and Barbera blend, unspecified percentages.
