Castello di Volpaia

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2017

The riserva in this vintage is the better way to go v the Chianti Classico. More expression and the tannins have mellowed, just like a good riserva should work. If you ever get a chance to go to Volpaia, I highly recommend it. Easy point between Florence and Siena and you can stay with Guido and Martina at La Locanda. — 11 days ago

This gypsy is fruity and a little peppery, like Pippi Longstocking. Old vine young wine. — 3 days ago

Marchesi Mazzei

Siepi Castello di Fonterutoli Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2013

Nice wine but not quite all together at this point. Decanted for 4 hours. But too much sweet oak for my taste. With Marcella Hazan’s bolognese it’s a nice pairing. Deep fruited and the merlot certainly comes through. Good acid, tannins still very there. With even more air probably gets to 9.0. But overall still a bit skeptical of super Tuscans in general. — 8 days ago

Castello di Neive

Santo Stefano Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2014

2014 drinking exceptionally well in late 2020. Complex, dry, without too much fruit and a quick finish. Should be a higher rating on this app. — 4 days ago

Castello di Ama

Vigneto San Lorenzo Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2013

This bottle is drinking nicely. Morello cherry, tart plum, tomato leaf, dried herbs. Tart, savory with a touch of salinity and iron. Tannins are soft but still present and I like the acidity that balances out the wine. Very nice — 12 days ago
