    It doesn't get more classic than this! Sangiovese is always noted with a spicy cherry note and this Rosso has got that covered. The amazingly smooth mouthfeel and bright acidity make this sangiovese an extremely versatile wine to pair with all styles of food.

    While I'm always surprised to find a value wine from Tuscan that truly speaks to everybody, I'm equally surprised to find the same thing that really speaks to the purists. This 2015 vintage is really shining through here. At $15 this is one to stock away to have on hand in 5+ years so you know you'll always have something extra special even if you're drinking on a Tuesday night. From the moment you stick your nose in the glass you can feel that this is a special wine. It's still extremely restrained, but after it sheds a bit over the next several months, there's no questions that you're going to be sitting on one of the great values of the year. Clean as a whistle, but retaining that vibrant brambly sangio red fruit. After teasing out the fruit with a nice bit of air, the boisterousness and depth becomes obviously apparent. The palate is textured and structured, but not chewy or tannic. An absolute dream here for anyone who has the faintest idea of what Sangiovese should tastes like.

    Great value wine from a celebrated producer! This Rosso manages to balance drinkability, classic favors, and complexity all at once; very savory with a gentle depth, woody spice, and just the right amount of fruit.

    Tenuta di Sesta 2015 Rosso di Montalcino (along with Baccinetti Rosso) is one of the best deals going in our Italian section. It's as pure of an expression of Sangiovese as you're likely to come across at this price and akin to the "gift that keeps on giving." It's already flying off the sales floor so we don't expect the supply to last long. Simply delicious.

    This Rosso was aged for one year in 20hl Slovenian oak barrels and unites the imposing structure of Brunello with the freshness and vivacity of a young wine; classic ripe strawberries, cherry-cola, and cranberry with a hint of leather and spice on the finish. This can be drunk young, but will evolve over the next couple of years. WARNING! This is one of those wines that will make you think: how did that bottle empty itself?
