    (Tenuta di Biserno Coronato, Bolgheri, Tuscany) Yes, this is a value red, considering the cost differential between the Coronato and more established, vaunted super-Tuscans of no greater quality, selling for three times more. 2005 is the inaugural vintage of this new project from the brothers Lodovico and Piero Antinori. Their 3-year-old vines have yielded a wine of gorgeous concentration and proportion: violet and blackcurrant perfumes emanating from a subtle, herbal-smoky-tobacco core; thick, plush, flowing sensations punctuated by zesty acidity (in this sense, very Italian); and muscular yet fine, meticulously sculpted tannins. For all that, it’s an eminently approachable, Cabernet Sauvignon-based super-Tuscan (with Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot) that no red wine-loving guest should have a problem identifying with.
