A blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot and Cabernet, this Tuscan red shines with vibrant ripe berries and forest fruits. Incredibly supple on the palate with excellent body and balanced structure, this is a really fine Sangiovese-based wine. We were taken by the elegance and drinkability at this price point, so it came as no surprise to discover that it contains only estate grown, hand-harvested fruit from Altesino’s famed vineyards in the Montalcino region in south-central Tuscany. This is Brunello di Montalcino country, but Brunellos take many years to mature and are quite expensive. Ready to drink now, enjoy this with rich, creamy pasta dishes, stuffed roasted poultry, barbecued ribs or sausages.
