In this week's selection, we're highlighting Sangiovese values from the grape's homeland, Tuscany. Although the region's reds can reach stellar prices today, especially its noted super Tuscans, these spotlighted reds prove that this doesn't have to be the case. None are priced more than $24, and all have scored at least 90 points.

Tasting Highlights’ wine reviews are fresh out of the tasting room, offering a sneak peek of our editors’ most recent scores and notes to WineSpectator.com members.
