Altesino - Rosso di Altesino 2010, IGT
Here's a quick note on a wine of solid value, from a big Montalcino producer, Altesino. This is, by their own description, an everyday wine, and I have to say, you could do a lot worse than to drink this every day. The "Rosso di Altesino" should not be confused with the Rosso di Montalcino. Rather, this is an I.G.T. wine made of 80% Sangiovese, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot comprising the other 20%. It can be easily found for around $15.
