10 Wines Under $20/ Great bottles needn't break the bank. Of the more than 1,200 wines in the under-$20 price range we've sampled during the past year, these widely available selections represent some of the best values. Pure Sangiovese with black-raspberry fruit, from an estate owned by the Cinzano family.

Cellar Selections/ Solely Sangiovese Grosso grapes, this Tuscan wine is dark ruby with purple hues. Scents of black cherry and anise lead to a supple palate of fruit and spice. Less intense than Brunello, but just as good.

/ The infamous heat in Europe during the summer of 2003 makes selecting wines from that vintage hazardous. Some winemakers wound up with overextracted, tannic, unbalanced wines while others make glorious ones. Put this wine in the latter category. Extraordinary length and complexity, coupled with lip smacking acidity, make this easy to recommend highly. One of the best Rosso di Montalcino I've tasted!

Mighty Montalcino - Best Values/ It's hard to talk about economies where Brunello is concerned, since its price range runs from high in a normal year to higher in a better year. A consumer's best hope lies with Rosso di Montalcino. Brunello vineyards can also be used for Rosso - so in a hot, difficult year such as 2003, a lot of first-rate vineyards surrendered their grapes to Rosso. [One] of the best Rossos of the 2003 vintage.

Buying Guide/ The 2001 Rosso di Montalcino begins with scents of red berries and cherries, then adds chocolate, leather and herb complexity on the palate. Tannins are well-rounded, while the acidity is fresh, making this wine a delight to drink over the short term.

Ein ausgewogener, fruchtiger und frischer Rotwein. Granatrot. Mittelkräftige Nase. Beerige Aromen (Erdbeere, Himbeere) und Dörrfruchtcharakter (Erdbeermarmelade) dominieren leicht vor etwas Steinobst (Kirsche). Im Gaumen empfand das Degu-Team den Wein als trocken und noch etwas reifebedürftig. Gerbstoff und Säure sind noch leicht dominant. In der Rückaromatik zeigen sich vorab Dörrfrucht und beerige Aromen. Mittlere Fülle. Eher etwas kurz im Abgang.

Tasting Notes:

(14,5 % vol.) on the nose it reminds of fresh hints of blueberries, cherries and raspberries well tied-in with cinnamon and leather. On the palate it is well balanced and warm with great structure and soft tannins.
