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. — a month ago

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
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

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
