Monte Antico Rosso Toscana 2006

With 85% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, this Red from Tuscany is an awesome deal for $11.50.  Wine Spectator put it in their top 100 wines in 2009 and I can see why.  Aromas of raisin with the light flavor of currant and a little lime, this gem is a great deal and was solid from the first taste to the last.  It was a little spicy, but when it opened up, the true chianti character came out and we really enjoyed it.  Grab it if you can find it.
