/ 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!

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.

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.

/ Reluctant aromas of cherry blossom, wood spice and violets. Flavors of strawberry jam and bittersweet chocolate have very good balance, and gripping, though not painful tannins. Sweet-tart finish.

/ Bosky scents of woodland cherries last straight through this wine, a crisp, clean line of flavor that won't get in the way of most anything for dinner, from grilled chicken to roast beef. Fresh and lovely.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

Farbe: Mittleres Granatrot; Bukett: Süsslich beerige Noten, Himbeeren, Sauerkirschen, Passionsfrucht; Gaumen: Runder, mittelschwerer Körper, Fruchtaromen mit gut dosierten Tanninen macht einen jetzt schon einen recht reifen Eindruck

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.
