Tenuta Greppo (Biondi-Santi)

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese

This is really nice
Salt first. Big tart wine with some subtle subtle flavors. Some minty basil. Some spicy clove. Some funk. Tannins linger.
But not complex. A big enjoyable Tuscan.
I like it a lot…. But the world would probably even rate it higher than me.

Château Rayas

Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache Blend 2010

Served double-blind as a sort of epilogue to an already epic night. This was served alongside another red wine that was also presented double-blind. Immediately, I called this Southern Rhone and the other wine, Sangiovese from Toscano (it ended up being a 2012 Biondi Santi Riserva). This presented a bright ruby color in the glass with a transparent core. This wine…had an OMG nose. The kind of aromatics that could end all wars and bring a century of peace to all mankind. It’s both powerful and elegant. Both ripe and fresh. An androgynous wine that represents both masculine and feminine with a grace that would make Prince or David Bowie envious. Gorgeously layered red and dark fruits, exotic spices, licorice and garrigue wrapped in the most beautifully textured package imaginable. It reminded me of something similar a previous experience; like Fonsalette…but this was different, there was more here. When you taste this, everything becomes clear. You look at everyone at the table differently; for what you have more in common instead of what makes us different. An experience akin to an Odesza show on MDMA. It’s that profound and then you are forever changed. You wake up the next day, and the day after that, and the day after that and weeks go by and your worldview is different. You see love in everything. And then it was revealed to be a 2010 Chateau Rayas. *Insert expletive*. A magnificent wine. An epiphany and, as far as I’m concerned, perfect. This is not merely a great Chateauneuf du Pape. This transcends the appellation. It should be its own AOC. Drink now or whenever you’re reading this note. — 5 months ago

@Ceccherini Cristiano @Tom Casagrande @Andrew Cullimore thank you…but really, thank the wine. It was truly that special.

Jacopo Biondi-Santi

Fontecanese Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Jacobo Biondi Santi Fontecanese.
Floral aromas verge on lavender and violet, delicate cherry panna cotta, with dried red and ripe dark cherries. Clean and lithe. Cherries continue on the palate with a pliable, silky and pleasant tarragon laced tannic completeness. Dried raspberry, blackberry and hints of chocolate. Gorgeous wine

Declassified brunello for the 14 vintage. Tasty wine, but they were smart to declassify this year as the quality difference is stark. — 9 months ago

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2018

My last note on this wine is relevant here. Like then, this was fresh, pure, and elegant. There was perhaps a touch more volatile acidity in the backend than expected which knocked back my score. — a year ago

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

This was so much further along than the Biondi santi and was a very impressive showing. Already developing deeper notes and just felt more complete. Would immediately recommend and buy again! — 2 years ago

Rosso di Montalcino 2017

Pale garnet color. Quite aromatic. Lots of red fruit, iron and sanguine aromas. Hints of herbs, leather, tobacco and tar. Savory, elegant, medium bodied, soft on the palate. High acidity. Long, lingering finish, some spicy/tobacco hints — a year ago
