For our inaugural Wine of the Month we chose a wine that I recently wrote about, but due to the overwhelming response and feedback we decided to feature it throughout April. This is a value gem (it should really be closer to $20) from one of Tuscany's greatest vintages!
Castiglion del Bosco Rosso di Montalcino 2006
Bottle Price: $13.99/bottle
Case Price: $11.96/bottle!!
Only $143.52 for a 12 bottle case before tax!
6 months in French Oak (30% new)
This is a delightful wine for the money. Everyone who has tasted it shares the same confused look when they hear the price. I myself thought maybe I'd fallen into the punch when I tasted this, and actually asked to re-taste it a few days later to make sure I wasn't crazy! Beautifully evolved, but not even close to tired. A modern style with rich cherries, plums, herbs, and chocolate. Medium bodied, delicious, and at the price it’s pretty much guilt-free. A nice little wine from a great vintage. It's also quickly becoming the servers' new "go-to" red wine for themselves so be sure to grab some before it's gone.
