9.0

Really ripe and rich. Too much me thinks. The freshness and crisp texture that I love in the #sangiovese grape has been lost in a blend with #cabernet and #merlot Oh yeah and then there’s the price! Completely too expensive, average price is about 120€ in Europe with no VAT included. #biondisanti #toscano #tuscany #italy Castello di Montepo is a Tuscan wine estate in the Scansano district of #Maremma Toscana, founded in the 1990s by Jacopo Biondi Santi of the famous Montalcino family.

The winery is housed in the castle Montepo itself, a single fortress building set on a rocky outcrop
In contrast to the Biondi Santi Brunello di Montalcino estate, where large Slavonian oak casks are used for maturing wines, the wines here are aged in French oak barrels.

Annata Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese

Decanted with an aerator- I wasn’t expecting much thinking this needed 8hrs at least but Italian quarantine takeout demanded a good/great bottle. This was youthful, vibrant, paired amazing well with charcuterie of meats and more smoked cheeses. Was succulent and we adjourned to 2hrs of card games and it was 10-15% better. Luckily I have one more bottle. — 6 months ago

Riserva Biondi-Santi Marca Propria Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 1970

1970 that came out ripe from the opening, blew off funk and just kept on coming with relentless nose of stewed fruit baked pie, spice, figs, Quince, etc but also great acid to balance...at the end like a great port but what a fantastic experience from great producer. — 3 years ago

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2006

Have to say I was a little underwhelmed by this one. I think it was better when I first opened it than after a few hours of decanting. Some leather and tobacco, still good acidity and some momentum. I was hoping for more.... — a month ago

I so appreciated tasting this Goliath of Italian wine. I’m wondering if decanting helps or not with the old Italian wines. This had those notes on the nose and in the mouth that reminded me of wonderful moments in Italy. It presented a lot of secondary characteristics.

Sassoalloro Toscana Sangiovese 2015

I’m enjoying this way too much for $30.

From the originators of Brunello, this super is named after a famous volcanic rock. And it’s true to those origins. It’s strong and earthy, but not too dirty and old. It has those leather and tobacco notes that I want but it’s balanced with a beautiful floral arrangement, primarily violet and wildflower.
