2004 Altesino Rosso di Montalcino
Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon As a result of no wood contact, this Rosso has a vibrant ruby red color and a fresh bouquet with scents of ripe forest fruits. Inviting and fragrant on the palate, it offers excellent body and sound structure. An excellent value, Rosso di Altesino is the wine of choice for pasta, white meats and semi-soft cheese.

Full-bodied, with very ripe, almost raisiny fruit. Tight and lean now, but the rich fruit comes through on the finish. Give this time. Best after 2011. 10,000 cases made. –JS<br/>
