Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2017

Another one from last night’s birthday dinner. I had a little left to revisit on day 2 and it is still amazing. What a classic. I could sit with this for a long time. The smokey, deep dark fruit/licorice, and velvety mouthfeel, all make this wine shine. This one will definitely improve with more age. Easily one of the top 5 wines of the year for me. — 5 days ago

Masseto

Toscana Merlot 1999

This is a brilliant wine. Lots of tannins- not completely resolved - thanks a wine has tons of life left. Some barnyard , Dark fruit and a hint of cedar in the nose. Well balanced and a super long finish. A real treat to drink. Boom. — 10 days ago

Fattoria La Valentina

Spelt Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2016

ESF
9.2

This was just gorgeous - so elegant, so much style, and I believe this will only improve w/age due to impressive concentration & balance. Ripe black & red fruit, whirlwind of tertiary notes - just kept evolving. Smooth, finely grained tannins & suave acidity. — 4 days ago

Marchesi de' Frescobaldi

Massovivo Toscana Vermentino 2018

This Italian white has a most interesting presence in the glass. The pale yellow liquid has a nose which is quite herbaceous, showing notes of sage, anise and oregano. The palate brings forth some citrus fruit - Meyer lemon - and a boatload of minerals and salinity. There is quite a racy acidity, too. Like a good Vermentino should, the wine leaves a sense of the seashore on the finish. — 10 days ago

E. Fuligni (Cottimelli)

Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

Popped and poured; no formal notes. A little shy upon opening but after 30min of air, this was bangin’! Montmorency cherry, orange peel, black tea, dry dusty earth, spices. Firm structure. Still quite youthful but undeniably delicious. A wonderful accompaniment to pasta, marinara and panzanella. Drinking very well now with a little air and should continue to do so for another 10+ years. — 9 days ago

Montevertine

Le Pergole Torte Sangiovese 2014

Certainly one of the best representations of Sangiovese there is, the 2014 vintage is perfect for my tastes with stunning elegance and transparency, almost Burgundian in style. It wafts a seductive and perfumed bouquet of cool wild berry fruit with blood orange, baking spice and roses. The palate has impeccable detail and focus, with a silky texture, smooth tannins and a long and vibrant finish. Excellent already, with a long life ahead! — 10 days ago

De'Ricci

Sor Aldo Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Sangiovese 2017

Incredible. Vibrant punchy wine with deep dark plum, dark cherry and these earthy undernotes typical for the Montepulciano Vino noble wines. Mind blowing pairing our ‘from scratch bruschettas’. — 8 days ago
