Cirò Classico Superiore Gaglioppo 2015

Delectable Wine
9.0

The 2015 Cirò Rosso is a terrific expression of Gaglioppo. Crushed raspberry, cherry, sandalwood and dusty dried rose tones are found throughout. Soft and pliant upon entry, the Rosso turns zesty, with a reverberation of tart berry tension and tobacco toward the energetic close. $25.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, June 2021) — 3 days ago

Tenuta Sette Ponti

Oreno Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2018

Sette Ponti or "seven bridges," refers to 7 bridges crossing the Arno River on the road from Arezzo to Florence. Blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cab Sauv & 10% Petit Verdot, aged 18 months in new French oak. Very dark Ruby with pronounced aromas of dark fruits, cigar box & earthy notes, touch of floral citrus. Flavors of black cherry & blackberry with tobacco & spice. Fine tight tannins, long finish ending with cacao, tobacco & mineral spice as the finish builds. Decant now! Will continue to age! — 4 days ago

Acino

L'Acino Asor Calabria Rosato Rosé Blend 2019

この作り手は還元してる印象だったのだが、この年のビンテージは、還元なし。
一つ前のビンテージよりは果実味が増した印象だが、青さのある酸と塩味。染み込むような旨味もしっかり。
アセロラ、房付きトマト、キャンディ、小梅。
日常の料理に寄り添ってくれる感じがいい。
ワインって偉大でなくても充分だ。
ちなみにアルコール度数は14度。

Cantine Colli di Catone

Casal Pilozzo Lazio Malvasia 2004

Unique wine
Coming from my cellar in Italy
Antonio Pulcini the winemaker is a lovely fellow that lives in a marvellous property on the hills south of Rome.
He found when relatively young bottles made by his dad 30 years earlier still delicious and decided to reproduce them somehow.
It took him a while, but the wines have absolutely no similar examples in the area.

The wine is bright gold with straw shade
When it reaches room temperature gives its best on the nose with mandarin, grapefruit, an array of herbs and flowers. Hay, cheese, wet stones, marzipan and quite an oxidative personality.
The palate is fresh, soft and extremely long.
Probably the vines this wine was made from have been replaced too. Fascinating too say in one word.

Azienda Agricola Le Ragnaie

Troncone Toscana Sangiovese 2017

An exceptional value at $20 - one of the best I’ve had recently. Ready to go out of the bottle with a bit of a chill. So fresh with great lighter red fruits. Nice reflection of higher altitude Sangiovese from Montalcino. Excellent balance and acid, medium minus tannins. Should have bought more. — 4 days ago

Tenute Guardasole

Pio Decimo Rosso Nebbiolo

PnP
N: Bing Cherries, tar, mulberries, damson plum, gravel road.
P: Cherries, tar, bright acidity, gentle tannic grip, esp. in the cheeks. Mid-light weight in the mouth. I know with air/time, this broadens. As it airs, a mossy, leathery, quality comes forward esp. on the nose.
Really delicious.
