This particular wine drinks rather well young. Morellino is a Sangiovese based wine from a village in the south of Tuscany called Scansano. Drinks particularly well young.Ruffino Modus 2006
. This is a really nice Tuscan blend mostly Sangiovese with some cabernet and merlot. Give it a good decant.Pio Cesare Barbera D'alba
. Barbera D'alba is a fantastic food wine, and the varietal is one of the most planted in Italy. This particular Barbera comes from Piedmont (the same region where white truffles come from) and Pio Cesare is a very well respected producer who puts out some great Barbaresco and Barolo. This also got 92 points from Wine Spectator.Campaccio Terrabianca 2004
A blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Merlot. 2004 was a great vintage in Italy. 91 points Antonio Galloni.Vinchio-Vaglio Serra Barbaresco 2003
These are all great suggestions. I need to do a pretty thorough search, but some that stick out are:Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva.
Usually quite robust, but this one has a touch of time on it. Would order myself.Albino Barbaresco.
Great producer.Corino Barolo.
Their 2005 was absolutely sensational. Small production, I'd pick one up at this price.
, but this will be a step up from the Le Volte.
I still need to look through more. Stay tuned. Also, 2005 Gaja if you're feeling flush.
