Altesino Palazzo Altesi 2012


SKU 113392


This rich garnet wine couples aromas of wild berries and violets with leather and smoke. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, rich and bursting with dried red cherry flavors, framed by firm but integrated tannins. Food Pairing: A focused and age-worthy red, best enjoyed with roast game and barbecued meats.

Wine EnthusiastHere's a sleek Sangiovese that opens with scents of toasted oak, vanilla, blue flowers and mature plum. The round palate is already accessible, serving up sweet black cherry, black raspberry, licorice and mint framed in assertive but fine-grained tannins.
