Castello della Sala Cervaro della Sala Umbria Chardonnay Grechetto 2017

Consistent fantastic. Balanced with a zing. A different kind of chard thanks to the grechetto. Great accompaniment to the fresh fish dinner. Bright and nice acidity. — 8 days ago

Poggio Le Volpi

Edizione Limitata Roma Red Blend 2016

This is an extremely dark wine, inky black, and it smells of black plums, blackberries and black cherries. The palate shows a terrific display of said fruit with a savory blanket of spice and licorice thrown over it. The tannins are a bit tame, but that fault does make for an extremely sippable wine. It will pair nicely with pork or tomato-based dishes. — 12 days ago

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2015

Maraviosa! Dark, deep, rounded tannins carried the dark red fruit from beginning to end. Medium to full bodied. — 16 hours ago

Poggio San Polo

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

Good but certainly not great Brunello. The elements are all there but it just misses the mark with a thin mid-palate. Finished nicely with lots of black tea notes and tannins. Wish it had a bit more fruit to balance out the tannins. — 3 days ago

Fattoria Le Pupille (Elisabetta Geppetti)

Poggio Valente Morellino di Scansano 1998


Simple pizza dinner with David June 9 BD. Interesting Tuscan Sangiovase not from Chianti but further south Morellino Scansano and has more weight and dimension. Nose particularly compelling with mix of cherries berries and forest notes. Silky palate and good finish. AA18. — 10 days ago

Castello di Amorosa

Napa Valley Sangiovese 2017

Ruby in color with a wide reddish/ brick rim.

On the nose blueberries, currants, plums, tart cherries, light cedar, vanilla, licorice, light earth, spices, chocolates, tobacco leaf and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium-plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, raspberries, plums, vanilla, licorice, cedar, leather, earth, tobacco leaf, spices, graphite, herbs and black pepper.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a nice wine from Napa Valley. Tangy, spicy and interesting with a nice mouthfeel.

Still young, but already drinking nicely. Feels like an Italian red with a new world twist.

Easy drinking and needs time to open up a property. I gave it 90 minutes.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a Brie cheese. Will pair nicely with pizza.

A blend of 85% Sangiovese and 15% Merlot. Aged for 18 months in French Oak barrels (35% new).

14.7% alcohol by volume.

90 points.
