Il Tufiello

Arianna Occhipinti

Sicilia Il Frappato 2015

The colour has the evidence of a developing wine. Complex aromas of cherries, figs and a hint of leather. Notes of sour cherries, red plums, maraschino cherries and figs on the palate. Lovely acidity that cuts through the layers of drying fruit. It has the perfect balance between fresh and dry fruit for my taste right now. — 11 days ago

Toscana Red Blend 2018

After decanting this was amazing. Needed a change from California wine. This was bold with a softness. Good price compared to the crazy mark ups of California wine. Was at a chain steakhouse. — 2 months ago

Il Greppone Mazzi (Ruffino)

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2001

7 years past the recommended drink by year (2016) but it’s still pretty good. A little muted and occasionally uneven with bursts of spices, it is still very tasty and had a great aged aroma. Hints of fruit comes through here and there. Might rate it much higher if it wasn’t past its prime. — 2 months ago

La Spinetta

Il Rosé di Casanova Prugnolo Gentile - Sangiovese Rosé Blend 2019

A mid salmon in colour. Notes of strawberry, melon and stone fruit. Tastes quite fruit driven and New World for an Italian Rosato. 50% Sangiovese; 50% Prugnolo Gentile (a new grape varietal for me). Easy to drink. Made for the Bistro Lunch trade where a bottle will disappear quickly. — 2 months ago

Hello there
I hope everything is fine
Prugnolo Gentile is nothing more than a Sangiovese grosso from the area fo Montepulciano whwre they produce the Nobile and so on
It is quite unusual how they emphasise the blend, i guess they mean to tell us difference is in the origin of the grapes

Thanks Cec. It never ceases to amaze the number of Italian grape varietals. It is quite mind boggling but if anyone would be across it, it would be you. 👌

Tenuta Il Poggione

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

So balanced and complex. Nose shows tobacco leaf, moist loamy gravel, macerated ripe cherry, incense. Concentrated and mouthfilling, but it’s very soft and showing lots of secondary and some tertiary flavors. Such richness. Wow. Thanks to my brother for popping this! — 19 days ago
