Ronchedone Sangiovese Blend 2019

With risotto Milanese, killer for only 33 euro at Stendhal Milano, this wine fucks for that price at a restaurant. Actually restaurant forgot to charge us for it lol. Oops — 2 days ago

Blend 2 Sangiovese Blend 2018

This bold wine is quite dark in the glass and it offers up a nose of black raspberries, cedar, clove, vanilla and a hint of mint. On the palate, it’s brawny. Big notes of dark fruit mingle with those oak spices in a way that’s both fruity and savory. The tannic structure is toothy, so this wine wants a steak. — 11 days ago

Villa a Sesta

Sorleone Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Sangiovese Blend 2015

Elegant and restrained. When we first popped the cork there was just an overwhelming scent of violets and concentrated fruit. That slide quickly and turned into a lovely and tight wine. Flavors of both cold resting and warm slightly roasted fruit, solid structure they didn’t have an any harsh tannins but also was warm and welcoming without being flabby. Had it with of all things a venison sausage carbonara and it complemented it beautifully. — 2 days ago

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2019

Last minute purchase from corner grocer for Fathers Day caprese stuffed chicken and pomodoro. Reminded me why I love Chianti. Cherry candy, herbs, medium acid and tannins. Just delicious. — 9 days ago

Vintage 1990 | 50/50 Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Italian rooftiles colour. Brushwood. Cedar. Refinement and finesse. Not 100 % balance imo. Lovely nonetheless. — 13 days ago

San Marcellino Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Sangiovese 2015

Brunello in disguise.
Mostly Sangiovese with as they say a small amount of Pugnitello.
Raised up in med toast barrique and tonneaux. I decanted 3 hrs.
N: Big, warm, Black cherry and Liquorice nose.You can sense the wood but it’s not intrusive. Red flowers/ Geraniums, whiff of vanilla.
P:Cherry bomb, souis bois, dirt,( in the best way) charcoal, pencil lead, nice tannic grip, beautiful acid balance. More black/red flowers. Long finish.
Not as “bright “ as many Chianti, rides the “ darkness” of Brunello, weight in between.

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 1990

Vintage 1990 | What a joy to drink a wine that is still vibrant and also 32 years old! Very intense smell with pine Forrest as well as stinking tones (not bad). Plums. Leather. Licorice root. Supple, great balance. Great effort. — 13 days ago

Chianti DOCG Sangiovese Blend 2015

Peter Koff's greatwine2u, $16

Nose of smoke, leather, and rich concentrated prune and dried blueberry. Bold and concentrated, decently complex of leather, dried blueberry, a little smoke and some of the sangiovese tomato notes. Has nice acidity that is crucial in balancing the rich jammy notes. I didn't care for it on opening but 2-3 days later it really opened up. It's not my typical style I like, but it's quality and quite complex and nicely balanced!
