Red Wine Red Wine Score: Wine That Excels in Its Category

(Tuscany) Rosso Toscana shows a brilliant ruby red color and nuances of garnet red, moderate transparency. The nose denotes intense, clean, pleasing and refined aromas which start with hints of black cherry, plum and black currant followed by aromas of blueberry, violet, vanilla and mace. The mouth has good correspondence to the nose, a slightly tannic attack and however balanced by alcohol, good body, intense flavors, pleasing roundness. The finish is persistent with flavors of black cherry, plum and blueberry. Rosso Toscana ages for 6 months in steel tanks and for 3 months in barrique.

Good but not excellent red wine from Altesino, a simple Sangiovese wine with a bit of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Good fruit expression with a touch of wood, making this wine quite simple although pleasing. Finish with cherry notes.
