deangold Posted July 22, 2006 Share Posted July 22, 2006 I think the best abrgain in red wine from Tuscany is Rosso di Montalcino. Made fromt he same grapes grown in the same vineyards as Brunello, for about half price you can ahve a wine that drinks well young and also can age. You should be able to dfind mosr Rosso for $20 to $30 a bottle. The 2004 vintage is just now ariving and it is superb. WHile there are many forgettable 2004 Rossi (just as there is a lot of forgettable wine in general), those that are good are amazingly good. My favorites include: Pertimali di Sasetti Livio Le Macioche Costanti Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona Argiano Collosorbo I am looking forward to tasting the 2004 Agostina Pieri when it arrives sometimes in August.
