Schidione Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2011


Really ripe and rich. Too much me thinks. The freshness and crisp texture that I love in the #sangiovese grape has been lost in a blend with #cabernet and #merlot Oh yeah and then there’s the price! Completely too expensive, average price is about 120€ in Europe with no VAT included. #biondisanti #toscano #tuscany #italy Castello di Montepo is a Tuscan wine estate in the Scansano district of #Maremma Toscana, founded in the 1990s by Jacopo Biondi Santi of the famous Montalcino family.

The winery is housed in the castle Montepo itself, a single fortress building set on a rocky outcrop
In contrast to the Biondi Santi Brunello di Montalcino estate, where large Slavonian oak casks are used for maturing wines, the wines here are aged in French oak barrels.

Quarantine wine #3. Freaking delicious. Ripe cherries, lots of fruit but well balanced. It’s not a weirdo but slurping this up! — 5 months ago

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2006

Have to say I was a little underwhelmed by this one. I think it was better when I first opened it than after a few hours of decanting. Some leather and tobacco, still good acidity and some momentum. I was hoping for more.... — 12 days ago

I so appreciated tasting this Goliath of Italian wine. I’m wondering if decanting helps or not with the old Italian wines. This had those notes on the nose and in the mouth that reminded me of wonderful moments in Italy. It presented a lot of secondary characteristics.

Fortercole Marche Sangiovese – Merlot 2017

Absolutely delicious. A bit more body & oaky vanilla/caramel on it vs the purse Sangiovese blend. Great slightly chilled on a hot summer evening! — 6 days ago

Santi Nello Conegliano Valdobbiadene Superiore Prosecco

Very good Prosecco. Green apple and orange zest on the nose, very fine mousse, flavors of caramel and nuts, faintly hazelnut-y. — a month ago

Annata Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese

Decanted with an aerator- I wasn’t expecting much thinking this needed 8hrs at least but Italian quarantine takeout demanded a good/great bottle. This was youthful, vibrant, paired amazing well with charcuterie of meats and more smoked cheeses. Was succulent and we adjourned to 2hrs of card games and it was 10-15% better. Luckily I have one more bottle. — 5 months ago
