Il Carbonaione Alta Valle della Greve IGT Sangiovese 2014

9.3

Seriously great wine. Dark, fleshy, abundant fruit, well structured, long and elegant tannin structure. More serious than I expected and probably should have waited to open it... — 10 days ago

2014 was a difficult vintage in Italy for everyone.
Enjoy this wine now over the short term while you wait for 2015 and 2016 Brunello.

Case Vecie Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2012

Tried ‘11 & ‘12 together. A blend of 40% Corvinone, 30% Corvina, 15% Rondinella, remained indigenous grapes derived from 18-acre vineyard, grapes dried for several months using appassimento method. Ruby with with aromas of dried fruits with pepper and smoky spice notes. On the palate ripe blackberry and cherry flavors, savory, with citrus, tobacco & cacao. Soft ripe tannins, chewy on long finish ending with a juicy fruit and oak spice character. Both great! — 10 days ago

All things considered this might be my favourite wine. Instantly tastes good out of the bottle then just gets better and better. So impressive — 2 days ago

Sandrin Coste Della Sesia Nebbiolo 2017

Great value inexpensive Spanna (though they use “Nebbiolo” on the label). Nose has lots of slightly sour cherry fruit, a lot of crushed stone, and an interesting green herbal note. In the mouth it’s on the lighter side but fairly energetic. Crisp cherry fruit, rock dust flavors. Some very fine-grained tannin gives a lightly chalky texture to the finish. Cleansing acids. — 15 days ago

@Daniel Bloom - I got it from Garagiste, though it’s imported by Vintage ‘59 Imports here in my backyard in DC.

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2017

Incredibly herbal (fennel and tarragon) on the nose along with hints of baking spices. Ripe dark fruit (plums and currants) on the pallet. Light and easy to drink. Uniquely different but still Amarone! — 7 days ago

Bolla

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2015

When Abele Bolla opened up Al Gambero Inn in the northern Italian town of Soave over 100 years ago, no one could have guessed that the favorite pastime of winemaking would continue for four generations. Deep Ruby with aromas of jammy berry fruits, spice and oak. On the palate cherry and dried plum with bold spice, floral, cacao and cedar. Structured firm tannins, nicely balanced on long finish ending with fruit, cedar and earthy spice. Just starting to drink well now with room to age. — 9 days ago

Riserva Pellegrini della Seta Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

#kosherwineSunday

Dark purple/ruby in color with a reddish rim and medium intensity.

Strong nose of cherries, red currants, bitter herbs, earth, vegetables, light thyme, wood, spices, black tea and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Very dry on the palate with currants, sour cherries, tangy strawberries, light oak, spices, earth, bitter herbs, tobacco leaf, bitter vegetables and peppercorn.

Medium finish with round tannins and tangy pomegranates.

This is a nice Italian Sangiovese.
Tangy and spicy. Showing mild complexity with a nice mouthfeel.

Still young and would be better in 5 years. Needs a couple of hours to open up properly and bring the tannins to play. The high alcohol is nicely integrated, so watch out.

A good food wine that will pair nicely with pizza.

100% Sangiovese grapes were grown at 1,500 feet of elevation and aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. Kosher and not Mevushal.

15% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$35.
