Della Seta

Tenuta di Gracciano Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Sangiovese 2017

Ruby red clear color; unusual nose of freshly cut red apples, raspberries and plums and some baking spices from new oak; dry, medium acids, fine tannins and rich mineral-like notes with some baked desserts and coffee flavors on the palate, and a watery but satisfying finish. Unsusual but I like it. — 2 days ago

Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2016

This is exactly my kind of thing: heavy, perfumey, dark-fruity. Amma-fuckin'-rone.
Bear says: velvety and structured practically faultless. Very yum.

Castello della Sala Cervaro della Sala Umbria Chardonnay Grechetto 2018

White peach, grapefruit, and orange blossom with hints of lime zest and ginger on the nose. Ripe peaches, lemon, and tangerine with hints of dry toast and almond lingering on the finish. Reminiscent of Puilly Fume sauv blancs; very nice value. Goes great with spicy food — 16 days ago

Le Ragose

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2008

Shadowy ruby. Delicious. Fragrant with raisin, red fruit, blackberry, goji berry, herbal spices, blood orange, a bit of chocolate, leather and earth. Nice acidity and brightness on the palate, with just a pleasant balancing touch of sweetness. Feels like it’s in the prime of its evolution, with some fruit remaining but developing complexity. Could definitely go another 5 or more years. I think it would be really great with duck. — 7 days ago

Bricco Lorella Coste della Sesia Nebbiolo 2019

There’s some surprising boringness here. No obvious flaws but no standout qualities either. Less vibrant than you’d expect from Antoniolo. — a month ago

Flaccianello della Pieve Colli Toscana Centrale Sangiovese 2016

Delectable Wine
10

The 2016 Flaccianello della Pieve is a truly special, moving wine. There's not much more to say. The 2016 was epic when I tasted it last year. It is every bit as memorable today. Beautifully layered, the 2016 possesses remarkable finesse and power. All of the natural intensity of Panzano's Conca d'Oro comes through in a wine that dazzles from start to finish. As always, Flaccianello showcases the darker side of Sangiovese. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2020) — 9 days ago

I love this wine. The 2011 was just fabulous some months ago.

Pio della Rocca Merlot Blend 2011
