Bellini Merlot 2004 wine review by (PB)

I found this Italian red in Boston in a bargain bin at $4. It is light on the pour with a very vegetal–too vegetal–bouquet. The nose has some berry aromas but mostly vegetal with some pepper.

In the mouth it sits well enough at first but grows bitter mid palate. There is some honest fruit present but strong daffodil greenness. Finishes quickly. For the price, you can’t really complain but I repeat–life is too short to drink bad wine. Don’t search this one out.
