“Transparent pale gold. Good aromatic fruit scents, peach and a whiff of mango, fresh but not over the top. Flavors are consistent with the nose, fresh mango and tart acidity, and perhaps just a hint of that fabled Mosel slatey stony character in the background. If there's sweetness there, it's hard to pick out against the zippy acidity. Light 10.5% alcohol makes for easy sipping as table wine or aperitif, and there's a gentle peach-pit bitterness in the finish.”
Bargain Wine - Very dark ruby in color, almost black, with an odd, intriguing aroma of fruit and oak, blueberry and spice...antique ripe black-fruit flavors are structured by acidity and lent complexity by hints of tar and smoke. A blend of equal parts Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot, this is an unusually interesting wine for its price.

Rosso di Altesino Toscana IGT
[R]ustic aromas--barnyard and 'burnt match' and plummy black fruit. More fruit-focused in flavor, black plums and earthy notes, laced up with lemony acidity.
