2004 Villa Antinori Rosso Toscana IGT

From:

Tuscany, Italy

Price:

$23

Serve with:

Roast veal, pork or turkey

This proprietary red wine from Antinori combines sangiovese from Chianti Classico with the French varieties merlot, syrah and cabernet sauvignon from the prestigious Bolgheri subregion. The result is a supple but brilliantly structured wine that can be drunk now or spend a decade in the cellar. It's a subtle wine, by no means a blockbuster, with pure and penetrating flavors of black cherry, herbs and vanilla.
