Altesino Rosso di Altesino 2003
Let me begin by saying that Altesino was one of the best winery visits I've ever had in Italy. 80% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This baby "Super-Tuscan" never sees any wood and its floral, bright red cherry-berry fruit aromas jump from your glass. Ripe forest fruits, black pepper, and seemless acidity. A bargain wine from one of the best Brunello producers in Italy.
