MONROSSO Tuscan Red Blend IGT 2016 ($15): Monrosso—the offspring of famed Tuscan winery Castello di Monsanto—was founded in 1998 by Fabrizio Bianchi and his winemaker daughter Laura Bianchi. All grapes for the 2016 vintage, comprised of 20% each Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sangiovese, are carefully hand-harvested and then softly crushed. Ruby red in the glass with notes of iris, violet, and cherry, this incredible value wine is the ultimate accompaniment to pasta, pizza, or a cheeseboard.
