You could drink this wine everyday with your dinner. Itrsquo;s fun to drink and made that way. Aromas are of wild flowers, huckleberries and horse tail. the coffee and raspberry flavors have a juicy, enjoyable finish.

One of the great values in the world continues to be the blend of equal parts Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sangiovese called Vitiano. The 2001, aged three months in wood before being bottled, is a deep ruby-colored effort with vivid aromas of black cherries, new saddle leather, dried Provenccedil;al herbs, spice box, and licorice. It is more tightly-knit, and plays it closer to the vest than the more opulent 2000 Vitiano. The 2001 possesses lovely fruit, outstanding purity, and a long, spicy finish with considerable elegance as well as staying power. For $10, this remains one of the most remarkable values in the world. Drink it over the next 2ndash;3 years.

The 2002 Vitiano received some of the juice usually used for Montiano, though the blend of the wine consists of Cabernet and Sangiovese in addition to Merlot. Abundantly fruity, as usual, with the classic notes of red and black currants and plums, it is both rounder and fuller than the 2002 Merlot and, more importantly, considerably longer and more sustained on the finish. Drink: nowndash;2007.

A balanced young red, with damson and well-defined mineral character. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a mineral-driven finish. Delicious wine. Remains one of Italyrsquo;s best value reds. Drink now.

Every year this wine proves itself as a value champ. The rsquo;03, even though it hails from a hot year, is still a balanced, full-bodied example of fine everyday wine. The nose offers smoke, game and jammy dark fruit, and the palate is fresh and full, with big cherry and plum flavors.

Consistently one of the finest values in the marketplace, the 2003 Vitiano Rosso (34% Sangiovese, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 33% Merlot) spent three months in oak casks prior to bottling. Its deep ruby color is accompanied by aromas of dried roses, strawberries, cherries, currants, and spice box. With good density, loads of fruit, medium body, and an elegant, clean finish, it is a character-filled Italian red to consume over the next 1ndash;2 years.
