Stella di Campalto Podere San Giuseppe

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2008

This was my first bottle i tasted from Stella and i remember comparing it to an Echezeaux, but it has gone nwxt level up in body and complexity
I know it's a Rosso, but it feels like a huge Brunello with extra power.
Rasperry, leather, balsamic and licorice which are what you look for in a Brunello..plus wild strawberries, white plums, blood orange and nectarines...black truffle, cola, bay leaves, cardamom and soy sauce..and more trust me...in the mouth it's a refined sangiovese grosso vibrant, in tension and super enjoyable.
Had a little bruise on the label and didn't make it to the auction...
Sublime..made me so happy
At peak and perhaps also for many more years too

Tradizione Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Very young. Decanted for 60 minutes. Floral and cherry aromas. Cherry, smoke, and baking spice. Very good now but can be great with a few more years of aging. — 6 days ago

Ugolaia Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

Great Brunello. Right in the beginning of its sweet spot. Fragrant nose gives way to sweet vibrant black fruit with subtle hints of Tuscan sun and rich tobacco. Medium plus acidity and lingering finish. Just delightful — 13 days ago

Argiano

Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2006

PnP’d. Dark red color with orangish rims. Rust, blood, and heat on the nose. Not a lot of fruit, more earthy, smoky, and tannic on the palate. Medium minus finish. For not liking Italian wines, this wasn’t bad. Drink sooner rather than later. — 6 days ago

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

I tried a Brunello a few years back that I absolutely loved that I didn't get the name of, and have been chasing the dragon ever since. I found it in this bottle. Incredibly flavorful and bright fruit flavors, hint of tannins, not overly sweet at all. — 6 days ago

Bellaria

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2017

Nose has black cherry compote, recently sanded cedar, muddy garden soil and wet green herbals.

Palate has partially dried black cherry, blackberry, over-ripe black currant, crushed slate, medium tannins show this wine is still youthful.

A delicious wine showing lovely concentration and aromatics, rustic in style but high-minded as well. Drinking fantastic tonight, likely much better 2024+, might be hard to keep the remaining corks sealed for that long...

Decanted 3H.

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

Medium Ruby with aromas of berry fruit, spice and floral notes. On the palate flavors of black cherry and raspberry fruit, herb spice, pepper with lively mineral feel. Fine tannins, medium+ finish ending with a mushroom, tobacco and mineral character. Nice! — 7 days ago

Because if you’re gonna drive all the way to Colorado, you might as well bring some wine with you, right? Steaks on the grill and this glassful of dusty earth, cherries, sandalwood and leather. Needs air, like a lot of Sangiovese, but after an hour it begins really singing. — 8 days ago

Azienda Agricola Le Ragnaie

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2017

Performs way above its DOC. Complex nose of intense, winey cherries, loads of crushed rock-infused gravel, brambly notes, and roasted green herbs. Mouthfilling, soft, zingy with acids and minerality. Really fun. Will last and even improve over the next few years, which is kind of unusual for a Rosso D. — 12 days ago
