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

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
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
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.
