La Sorpresa Castelnuovo Berardenga Trebbiano-Malvasia Blend 2013

Yet another Italian producer of natural wine knocking it out of the park. A polite kind of funk, smoke, resinous, dried apricots, loaminess, with a floral tinged finish that lingers pleasantly — 5 years ago

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

The color and taste here is of a wine that is fairly advanced. It is tasty, but I’ll drink my remaining bottles relatively quickly. — 17 days ago

Thick as Thieves

Levings Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2017

First decent sunshine in the garden
Weekend is on early this week
Got delivered a 6 pack split between 2017 and 2016 yesterday
This '17 is delicious!!
It reminds me a lot of a sangiovese from Radda or Castelnuovo Berardenga or even a northern brunello. Vibrant, mineral, but supported by strong shoulders that you can't notice much at this stage. Neat and precise are the violet,tobacco and licorice.
Spices, leather and cola. The fruit is between a blood orange and a raspberry. I dare to say it recalls a Soldera's Brunello. Long, young and enjoyable from now and many years ahead.

@Ceccherini Cristiano interesting comparisons. I don’t often read about Pinot’s characteristics in this way. If this is that close of a comparison to two very different varietals then, I may have to reorganize my cellar better so that I don’t get Brunello’s and Pinot mixed up.

@Rob Brobst III 😄😄
Mind though I didn't compared sangovese and pinot, but specific sangiovese from specific areas with this specific pinot. Many producers in Tuscany are known to be producing wines that resemble a Burgundy, but the play in your mouth is slightly different. Instead of fascinate you with the array of scents, smooth touch and a never ending elegant after-taste some wines IMO they deliver a juiciness when they enter and then in the mid palate they explode and spread everywhere with a long powerful after-taste. Well I reckon this T&T pinot noir had that factor that I find in many Tuscan wines, specifically in sangiovese from Radda, Castelnuovo(sometines) and Montosoli(northern area of Montalcino); other wines are like that(Kurni, Habemus...) but having ancestors from the Chianti area shifts me easily on that vision.
I don't think you need to move anything around in your cellar😄, but you got curious on what you would have done in regards🤗. Cheers mate!🙏

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2017

Probably the most balanced Chianti Classico I have had in 2 years. It started off quite tart with sour cherries, but after an hour of rest... It has a mouthfeel of a Brunello. Pairing with chicken marsala, caprese salad, pesto... Complementing all! Need to get more of this. Super nice!

Nero di Nubi Pinot Nero 2010

Color of burgundy. Nose is interesting with dark fruits, oak, cured meat, and indeed some ripe fruits. Taste shoes polished tannins, tobacco leaves, spice, cherry jam, coffee note. While you feel she is quite light, she does have many flavors, even some sweet lichee note. Aftertaste is medium short with some bittersweet note and warmth. On her peak, enjoy now. — 4 years ago

Fruity nose, blackberry and peppery. I have a special fondness having been at the vineyard and castelnuevo de berardenga which is just the epitome of Tuscany. — 6 years ago
