Alberto Conti Toscana Rosso 2017
|Delivery time:||Same day Pickup|
The 2017 Alberto Conti Toscana Rosso is once again a prime example of this type of quality-value ratio. It’s a blend of 60% Sangiovese and 40% Merlot with the Sangiovese providing the earthy, rustic backbone and the Merlot offering the plush, velvety fruit.
You’re greeted with dark berry and savory aromas in the glass leading to a palate brimming with red raspberry, dried cherry, plum, and herbs. There’s plenty of rich, velvety, ripe fruit in this medium-bodied red; however, it also offers just the right amount of rustic savory notes to balance the fruit and remind you that you’re sipping on a bit of Tuscany. If anything, the 2017 is even more plush and round than the 2016. The right amount of lift and brightness on the finish makes this a great summer Red you can enjoy with BBQ and grilled meats.
Hammond and I just can’t get enough of this one. We had a glass recently, along with one of Hammond’s excellent Lamb, Mushroom and Eggplant Pizzas. It was a stunning pairing!
