Castiglion Del Bosco Rosso Di Montalcino 2004 DOC

Made from 100% Sangiovese grapes grown in the heart of Montalcino, this ruby red "Baby Montalcino" shows fresh aromas of raisins... no make that prunes, powdered sugar, basil and green peppers, while on the palate notes of sour cherries, mushrooms, and red berries. With a mildly spicy undertone, friendly acidity and soft tannins the finish comes around full circle, returning to the prunes. This wine is very approachable and expresses an impressive balance of all its parts.
