Pian del Ciampolo Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2003

Found this tucked away at one of my local shops. First time sampling the lowest end offering from Montevertine. IGT is misleading given Manetti family’s story. Anyways, wine is a banger! Cherry and currant with tea and some herbs. Lithe and refined. Perfect with Loafers pizza (or anything really). I love Sangiovese. — 2 months ago

Terre Nere (Campigli Vallona)

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese

I brought this bottle to the Tasting Group and served double-blind. Popped and poured. Deep, translucent ruby with a watery rim. On the nose: red cherries, dried herbs, Earl Grey, dusty earth and a hint of baking spice. On the palate: again with the red cherries, black tea, and dried herbs. Medium tannins and good acid. Impeccable balance. Finish is long and a touch savory. One taster remarked that it reminded him of Montevertine (whoa, he was close!). Pound for pound, one of the best Rosso’s coming from Montalcino that can be had at any price and this can be had under $30 all day. The 2016 is a fire cracker in its youth and delivering the goods right now. A contrast to the 2015 which, to my palate, was a touch flabby. Absolutely charming. — 6 months ago

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2013

Great but pricy. A super traditional producer from Chianti. 90% Sangiovese. Cherries 🍒 and black tea notes chalk and dust. Way too young only 12.5%. La Perla from the same winery is a benchmark. This is good too. From the SD wine company last bottle. — 4 years ago

Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2016

I think we opened this a little early. Very flowery and red fruits like strawberry and bright cherry. Tastes like Tuscany and Sangiovese. — 7 months ago

Rosso di Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2015

Wine #2 of the night. Maybe it was the hour decant, but opened up more than prior experiences. Cherry notes. Tightly wound tannins. Great with Loafers za. — 2 months ago

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2017

2020/4/15-16 with Venetian red tonguebsole roasted with potatoes and onions and chicory salad, and black sea bream linguine and fava, pancetta and onion ragu. Monteraponi is always so good - up there with Montevertine among my favorite Chianti estates. The 2017 edition is a light to medium weight with a nice transparent texture, and that dried orange peel and cherry thing. — a year ago
