Altesino Supertuscan Blend Toscana IGT Rosso di Altesino 2010
Rosso di Altesino has a vibrant ruby red color and inviting aromas of ripe berries and forests. Inviting, fragrant, incredibly supple, with excellent body and balanced structure, Rosso di Altesino is an excellent value―a perfect choice for pasta, Alfredo sauces, polenta, white meats and semi-soft cheeses.
Good cheap Super Tuscan
If I was blindfolded, I would have thought this was a cherry lollipop. On the palate I found raspberry and ginger which led to a hollow and short finish. Too bad.
Great potential in this young red, with great QPR, too. Cherry/berry aromas accompanied by some acidic espresso notes lead into a silky cherry palate. Very nicely made.
Medium bodied goodness. I get strawberry, cherry and a lil ole touch of mocha, but what the hell does my palate know anyway. Went super with some dumbed down Italian we ordered in.
Aromas and flavors of game, leather, and prune. Fairly simple and straigthforward. Relatively good QPR.
Had at Bravo Cuccina in North Vancouver. Very nice Tuscan for the price. Very transparent but nice colour. Cherry and earth on the nose. Nice mouthfeel with hits of cherry and earth on the palate. Very enjoyable wine. 89

"This rosso offers a brilliant ruby red color with a persistent bouquet of ripened fruit. On the palate
This wine is a brilliant ruby red, tending toward brownish red when aged. Its bouquet is intense, pure and refined, reminiscent of sweet violet, tobacco and chocolate with pleasant hints of wild berries and vanilla. Flavour fully confirms these expectations. The alcohol is well-balanced and the wine is full-bodied with good tannins and a very solid structure.
Wine Tasting NotesThis Rosso offers a brilliant ruby red colour with a persistent bouquet of ripe berries and forest fruit. On the palate, the wine is well balanced offering flavours of cherry, plums and soft fruit.
