2006 Monte Antico Toscana: More flavorful one day after opening, but easy to drink.

may 1-2, 2010: this was a recommendation from one of the guys at winetree. victoria paired it with pasta with butter and cheese, which did a good job of toppling the tannins in this wine. but, this italian wasn't that flavorful. this particular variety was a first for victoria, since it was a mixture of sangiovese, merlot and cabernet sauvignon. it was from the "select tuscan hillside vineyard" of italy, bottled in pisa. the next day, greg and victoria thought this wine opened up some more and was more buttery, with minor tannins. it had somewhat of a plum flavor. 12.5 percent alcohol.
