Altesino Supertuscan Blend Toscana IGT Rosso di Altesino 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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.

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

Made from 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, hand harvested from estate vineyards in September and October. Produced entirely in stainless steel tanks where it is also aged for 6-8 months, Rosso di Altesino is also refined in bottle for three months to ensure peak conditions upon release. 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.

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.
