I get this typical aged chardonnay scent on the nose (which it is not obviously), combined with the horse stable smell at my parents 😛
Turbent deep yellow. Very round on the palate, no sharp edges and low acidity. Can use some additional cellar time to gain more complexity

I’ve had the pleasure of trying 2 Montepulciano’s in the last two weeks that are both exactly how they should be, nothing flashy but solid well made food friendly warm and tasty snd full of leather, black stones and other touches of earth with bright and balanced fruits — a day ago

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2000

Stunning bottle! Far less dark and brooding than 2006, the uber rare 2000 Montepulciano is elegant, seamless and impeccably detailed. It’s layered with crazy depth of aromatics that soar flaunting BBQ spice, espresso, dried flowers and red fruit. It has off the charts complexity and a wild untamed nature to its expression that is as intriguing as it comes. The palate is precise, pure and balanced with a stunningly elegant texture and incredible length. Masterful wine. — 13 days ago

Tons of juicy blackberry and some green notes on the nose. More blackberry and a little spice on the palate, nice bright acidity, very tannic but not abrasive. Really enjoyed this, I've only had a couple really poor quality montepulciano before so this was eye opening on what the grape can offer.

Gran Sasso

La Bella Addormentata Sangiovese

Has a nice fragrance of ripe cherries and chocolate…
Drinks really well and smoothly, with fresh, ripe, and juicy flavors of dark berries and fruit, and slight pepper and spice.
Finishes pretty smoothly…
