Tenuta Poggio al Tesoro-Mediterra-Toscana-Italy-2006-$17.98-A elegant nose of berry and chocolate, dark amber in color.  A smooth easy drinking red, dark fruit, earth, a juicy wine that was flat out enjoyable.    This is the second time I have had this wine in the past few months, similar results.          WS-92            RP-90             CR-4.5           Good with veal, chicken, pasta.
