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.
My expectations are high for anything from Montalcino, but I wouldn't buy this wine at half the price. It was a little bitter and slightly vinegary. I love Italian wines and would love to find a great table wine in the <$20 category, but this wasn't it.
