Quercegobbe Suvereto Merlot 2010

Lyle Fass
9.3

Nose or smoke, wet earth, dried flowers, plum, faint raspberry, very pretty. This has nice high end aged Merlot character. Classic in style and very Tuscan. Palate is ripe, ample and rich but has a vein of freshness that runs throughout that gives it lovey cut. Good tannins and significant structure suggests this has some years left. Very juicy and long. Tuscan St. Emilion. Gets more silky with air. Tremendous fruit and volume on this. Cascades on the palate with the sweet ripe tannins. — 18 days ago

Tenuta Argentiera Villa Donoratico Bolgheri DOC 2016: Full-bodied. Big. Bold. Dark fruit. Firm tannins that need to relax. Overall, a sophisticated Italian Bordeaux blend consisting of 40/30/20/10 however time is the key component here to really see this wine shine. Cheers🍷 — 14 days ago

Suvereto Red Blend 2012

9.2

Nice nose of tobacco, cassis, earth and mineral. Tar as well. Deep. Palate is dark, deep, rich and brooding. Dense, structured and ripe, and showing youthful elements at 8 years of age. Long finish. I see air helping here. Cascading layers of fruit will fan out more. Serious structure and big tannins. — 18 days ago

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia

Vendemmia d’Artista L' Energia Red Blend 2014

Dark Ruby with aromas of earthy ripe black and red berries with slight note of cacao and woody spice. On the palate flavors of ripe, juicy fruit with oak, tobacco, leather and peppery-spicy tones, dense and persistent, firm tightly wound tannins need to integrate with oak. Long finish, complex ending with juicy sweet fruit and toasty notes. Must mature! — 16 days ago

Paleo Bolgheri Cabernet Franc 2006

Very tight. If I had another bottle 2006, at this stage of ageing I’d wait a few more year to open it. — 19 days ago

Marchesi Antinori

Tenuta Guado al Tasso Il Bruciato Bolgheri Super Tuscan Blend 2018

A blend of Cab Sauv, Merlot and Syrah. Deep Ruby with aromas of black and red fruits and floral spice aromas. On the palate black cherry and blackberry flavors with licorice, espresso and sweet oak spice. Smooth and refined tannins, long ending with fruit and sweet earthy tones. Consistent quality and good value. Had 2 bottles in the last month, they are great. — a day ago

Donna Olimpia 1898

Millepassi Bolgheri Superiore 2013

Another powerful Super Tuscan, which is similar to the Oreno I drank before. Not quite as strong as Oreno. Strong pepper in front, followed by earthy flavors. A great buy. — 3 days ago
