Altesino Rosso Di Altesino 2004

Altesino Rosso Di Altesino, 2004

This red table is a blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% cabernet/merlot. Altesino is best known as a Tuscan producer of great Brunellos. The color is dark red with a purple rim. The nose shows dark cherry, berry and some earthiness. In the mouth it is medium bodied with delicious dark cherry and spice. There are plenty of tannins here that will completely surround your tongue completing a long, dry finish. This is an elegant high quality wine that will go well with a grilled pork chop with porcini mushrooms. You can find this wine at Seattle Wine Co. for about $13. Excellent!
