Flaccianello della Pieve Colli Toscana Centrale Sangiovese 2009

Simply wonderful. This wine needs 90+ minutes to open even with a decant. But when it does it is a layered joyride. Deep purple color. Mine was semi heavy with sediment that I filtered out. Strong bouquet with the fruit in the backseat but still present. Cherry tar earth all evident. It was very good at the open but given time - it lengthened and had so much more going on with each sip. — 15 days ago

Costasera Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2012

Stored at room temp since 2017 - wasn’t to bad! Wasn’t good enough to review…. Worth it for the story of the bottle’s survival over these years. I love 2012 vintages… — 3 months ago

Castello della Sala Cervaro della Sala Umbria Chardonnay Grechetto 2018

Zippy. Tart. Green apple. Grass and minerality. I like this because of the Grechetto addition to round out and put more pep in with the Chardonnay. — a month ago

Luce della Vite Toscana Sangiovese Merlot 2019

Opened 6hrs before serving, no decant. Intense, gorgeous inky color. Fruits a bit hidden on the nose but after the long breathe nose is there. Wine is huge. Tannins are smooth. Gets better after each sip. — 2 months ago
