Rich cherries, succulent raspberries and fresh-cut herbs dance with crushed flower petals and a kiss of orange zest in this refreshing, aromatic ’15 Rosato Scalabrone. A rare Super-Tuscan rosato, this wine hails from Antinori’s Guado al Tasso, and it’s a food-friendly, genial introduction to this storied Bolgheri esate.

The product of a warm growing year with reduced yields, the ’15 Il Bruciato almost hugs you with its geniality, yet it retains a nicely acidic zing to whoosh it across the palate.

Il Palazzone Rosso del Palazzone NV 750ml
Il Palazzone Rosso del Palazzone NV 750ml
Price: $27.99

Il Palazzone makes its Rosso from a blend of different vintages, so the label doesn’t show a vintage, and although categorized as a VDT or Vino da Tavola, Rosso del Palazzone is 100 % Sangiovese Grosso grapes, just like a typical Rosso di Montalcino. This deep purple wine offers a typical Montalcino Sangiovese nose of cranberries, strawberries, spice, earth and tobacco. The palate is very silky and fresh, presenting tartness and concentrated ripe fruit, with a great balance of acidity and a nice lingering finish.

Ripe, juicy and seductive, the immediately enjoyable ’15 Torrione bursts with succulent red and blue fruits, incense, wildflowers, warm spices, and savory notes of game, tapenade and crushed river rocks.

A cuvée of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, this blend proportionally represents Petrolo’s vineyard composition; grapes ferment for at least two weeks, and the wine ages in used barrels of various sizes for 15 months before bottling and resting for six months before release.
Tenuta San Guido Le Difese 2012
Tenuta San Guido Le Difese 2012 750ml
Price: $34.99

Although third-tier Le Difese, inaugural vintage 2002, may do the work of the estate's "everyday" wine, when the estate in question is Tenuta San Guido, the “everyday” wine is a reason to celebrate. Ironically, the Le Difese, a Cabernet and Sangiovese blend, is even more difficult than Sassicaia to obtain, for the estate produces very little and exports even less--most of the 500 cases produced goes to local Bolgheri restaurants. Le Difese allows wine enthusiasts to experience the glory of Tenuta San Guido every day. Ripe, round fruit, moderate alcohol, and lively acidity from the disparate weather conditions of the vintage make the 2012 Le Difese remarkably balanced. Ripe, rich fruit, herbs and spice, a lingering vanilla note typify this juicy, soft and fresh everyday wine.

This ’14 Pian del Ciampolo shows no sign of its tumultuous growing year in its ripe red and blue fruits, fresh wildflowers, espresso, loam and baking spices; it’s a pure, lilting wine that almost dances across the palate. Vibrant acidity ushers in a perfume rich with telltale Radda terroir as this wine builds to a balanced crescendo. Mostly Sangiovese with a kiss of Colorino and Canaiolo, the organically grown Pian del Ciampolo derives from the same vineyards as the estate's flagship wine, Le Pergole Torte, which are 44 rolling acres located in the municipality of Radda in the heart of Chianti. Like its big-ticket big brother, Pian del Ciampolo shows the elegant, finessed and graceful side of Sangiovese, but at pricing and in a style that allows you to enjoy Montevertine early and often.
