Avignonesi 2005 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (Italy) 

Like other wines from Italy's Tuscany, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano consists mostly of the sangiovese grape -- Italian law requires at least 70 percent. The wines tend to have a characteristic tartness and dusty cherry that can be divine when matched with food. This one is full-bodied and meaty with dusty cherry, earthy prunes, sweet vanilla oak tannins and refreshing acidity. Sensual on the palate and a great food wine. Sw=1. $25. 4.5 stars.
