Bite me.

Monte Antico, Tuscany Italy 2004. 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cab Sav, 5% Merlot.

Today's guest blogger, Cara Bertone, former famous (or infamous?!) Watergrill Sommelier and now Veritas biatch, says "It's like vines that grow strawberry licorice. So real you feel the seeds stuck in your teeth! Don't forget to add that hint of grape leaf that happened to fall into your full mouth of fruit! At only 12.5% alcohol this thing rocks with some food! Preferably with Chicken Marsala inside a red sauce ( just so happened to be what was for dinner!). Tames down the herbs and brings out the well, you know, cherry tomato!"

Pictured is Kelly, who appears to have a bottle, not strawberry seeds stuck in her teeth. Anybody got some pliers?

$13.99 Whole Foods, Fairfax and Santa Monica.

Sorry to be the perennial hater on Whole Foods, but this bottle costs like $10 or under everywhere else...god, I'm such a crank.
