Bellini Rosso Piceno 2004 (PB)

Another of the “mix-n-match” wines (NW) brought up for review. Served again with left-over “Timbalo” (see preceding entries) this wine is a blend of Sangiovese and Montepulciano grapes that gives off a pretty bouquet and fresh grapes and cherries.

In the mouth it is a little sweet with Sangiovese flavors with a little steel. With air, the flavors move up a notch with nice balance and overall structure. It is balanced and solid. Finishing with pepper this is a winner; straight forward and pleasant. I am uncertain of the price until I check with (NW) but I suspect it is $10 or less; worth a raising a glass. (Turns out it was $3.33!) Oh yeah!!!
