Tuscan M&Ms

Poliziano Rosso di Montepulciano DOC 2005
This has been a stalwart good value in a modern style, though the price has crept to the border of $20. The ’05 vintage is light-bodied, accessible and subtly laced with a bit of tannin. Estate bottled by Federico Carletti in Montepulciano 13% $19.50 at Traverso’s Poliziano

Argiano Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2006
Argiano’s value offering, the ’06 is quite concentrated all around and very long. Bottled in Montalcino 14% $28.95 at Traverso’s Argiano
