Elegant and delicious Brunello for my 43rd birthday. I’m a sucker for the Brunellos coming from North of town of Montalcino like La Gerla, Il Marroneto and Biondi Santi. This offering from La Gerla was shy at the start but opened up beautifully after 4 hours. Notes are from two nights. Morello cherry, wild strawberry, dusty earth, old cedar, dried potpourri, dried rose petal, spice, licorice, dried Tuscan herbs, tobacco and worn leather Medium plus body, medium plus tannin, medium plus acidity and medium plus length of finish.

A captivating icon of the local territory, Santico perfectly represents the amazing style of Amarone, a wine famous worldwide for its pleasing elegance. With its elegant hints of red fruit accompanied by a tangy flavor, Santico is aged for 30 months in wood barrels of different sizes, origins, and toasting, followed by several months in the bottle.
Dark red hue; concentrated, fragrant nose with top notes of cherry jam and cranberries, followed by hints of plum, dried fruit and cocoa.
On the palate it is full, round, with velvety tannins, pleasantly tangy with a long finish, with notes of red berries and an alluring full flavor. — a month ago
A wow wine drinking perfectly right now. Blind I would have guessed late 80s Mouton. Bright ruby with some bricking. Notes of red currant, rose hip, turned earth, iodine and mint. With time some wet tobacco. Palate is all red fruit, mint and sun baked limestone. Just elegant and lithe with fine but structured tannins. Don’t miss this one. — 3 months ago
Last fall, I had the distinct pleasure of tasting a wine from AnneSanti for the first time. On that occasion, it was the Rosso, served blind. It ended up being one of the more memorable wines of 2020! On this occasion, I was presented with the Bianco (not blind). The wine was very light in color. On the nose, minerals, linen, chamomile, white flowers, stony, citrus and honey. On the palate, I found it to be quite brisk but in a very good way with light stone fruits and citrus notes. There was really nice persistent acid with a long, mineral driven finish that worked so well with the smoked trout. This is a fantastic aperitivo. I want this wine outdoors on a warm day with Gabin, dZihan & Kamien and Gotan Project playing in the background accompanied by light Mediterranean fare and, most importantly, some good mates. Overall, having now tasted two wines from this producer, I am eager to try them all. — 6 months ago
