Podere Il Carnasciale

Quarto Vecchio

iL Canovino Classico Superiore Valpolicella Ripasso 2016

Color is quite youthful. Nose has Graham cracker, tilled soil, dried cherry and cherry ooze. Big whack of (non-jammy) fruit initially, but quickly framed by soft tannins, and a nice but subtle minerally, savory component comes in. Very nicely balanced, with nice acids. Nicely concentrated too. Will go great with my pasta tonight. — a day ago

Tenuta Col d'Orcia

Il Veltro Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2004

I bought this 2004 bottle in 2009 on my honey moon. I’m drinking it now in 2021 on my would be anniversary with my soon to be ex husband as we toast to our 3 beautiful daughters. We are enjoying and glad that we stored it correctly/ sufficiently.
One thing we got right I guess 🤣

Cantine del Notaio

Il Sigillo Aglianico del Vulture 2011

9.0

Very dark ruby coloration. Hint of brown. On the nose, plum, Dark cherry, currants and forest floor. On the palate, full bodied and rich in the mouth, cherry, currants and a strong and pervasive presence of anise that goes long into the finish. Tannins are present and strong but do not inhibit a medium long finish of anise. — 2 days ago

Piedmont meets Pomerol. What a nose. Epic. This is epic a f. Plums, spice, minerals and earth. Perfumed, deep and penetrating. Just amazing. This is elite. Blind you think 2nd tier Pomerol. Has that raspberry spice cake thing in elite Pomerol. Cuban pipe tobacco. Wow. Did not expect this. So bright. So lifted. This is the best Piedmontese Bordeaux blend nose I’ve ever smelled. Sorry Darmagi. Huge concentration and depth. Big plummy and ripe fruit and mouth coating tannins. So long. Exquisite structure and velvety sweet tannins. Black plum and black cherry fruit. Long and structured. Really long. — a month ago
