2008 Altesino Rosso di Altesino

From this stellar Brunello producer, comes this lovely 2008 Rosso di Altesino wine which is perfect as an everyday red.  It is made with about 75% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet.  Luscious fruit on the palate with hints of cinnamon and cherry on the nose. This is an extremely affordable quaffer which will leave you wanting for more.  Spaghetti Bolognese anyone?   Widely available in the US for only $15-20 a bottle and in the UK at Bordeaux Index for under 10£  per bottle.  Highly recommended.  Buy this by the case load.  My rating 89 pts.
