1995 Castello di Fonterutoli Brancaia, Tuscany (About $29)

From the historic Chianti estate Castello di Fonterutoli comes a supple Sangiovese-Merlot blend with a beautiful touch of oak. This Tuscan beauty has not only weight and power but a lovely dark grace. Its sheer deliciousness makes a strong argument for blending Sangiovese with Merlot, rather than the more usual Cabernet. It's also a bargain compared with many of the super-Tuscans.
