Flaccianello della Pieve Colli Toscana Centrale Sangiovese 1986

Garnet core , terracotta , browning rim . Quite tertiary with black tea , sous bois , dried cherry ,old wood , spice , dried sage . Quite good density on the palate , dried red fruits , rose , spiced dried cherry. Fresh acidity and quite gritty tannin , spiced sour cherry and black tea stained finish . This is pretty mature , but though very tertiary on the nose on the palate fills out quite well . Starting to dry out on the finish should have been drunk by now but still holding on , drink now . — 12 days ago

Vintage? “Holding On” sounds like an oldie! 1997? Was fabulous in an earlier drinking window…Please detail Vintage; helps with others holding your same wine! Cheers 🍷

Marchesi Antinori

Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

Super Tuscan at its peak, just beginning to show brickish color on the rim but intense ruby for the most part. The nose starts of with wet forest and red roses and opens to opulent dark berries then wet wood and even wet leather. Palate has persistent fruit throughout with hints of vanilla, polished tannins and bright acidity with a long balanced finish. — 23 days ago

Isole e Olena

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2020

Really quite nice, and a perfect pairing with a Tuscan style bistecca. Have wanted to try Isole e Olena for a while but I think this was the first time. Dark cherry, some dusty restrained tannins, excellent acid of course. Another nice 2020 Chianti. — 18 days ago

Gaja; Ca'Marcanda Promis
Tuscany; Bolgheri, Maremma, Italy

A last minute substitution for a likely flawed bottle of Fèlsina Rancia...Just one of many chances we take when buying wines on the secondary market. 🤷🏻‍♂️

In my experience, this needs 4-5 years in bottle before it reveals its true colors. I love Gaja.

@Ron R Thanks for the insight, I've no experience with this particular bottle, and it was gifted to us.

Valdicava

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2010

Stunning wine. Lots of depth and earthy heft. The fruit is quite mature but in balance with the chewy tannic base. This wine is in the zone. Also the right compliment for mom’s homemade lasagna! — 15 days ago

Tenuta San Guido

Guidalberto Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2020

Rubis presque violet. Dense et jeune. Un premier nez presque médicinal, cerise, poivron. Le bouquet est agréable. La bouche est puissante, on sent sa jeunesse. C'est long et sec. L'acidité est bien marqué. Les saveurs de cerises et de cèdre s'entremêlent pour ce vin en début de vie. — 21 days ago

Marchesi Antinori

Solaia Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2009

A masterpiece from the Antinori House. This starts of meaty and leathery with some rose petals and evolves to pure bliss with good strength. — 18 days ago

Thanks, I think there is quite a delay some days at Delectable catching up.

@Alan Weinberg you have to add twice usually or three times. There are a ton of bugs here and they just need work arounds but once you do it’s fine. They haven’t updated the app in 3 years so knowing the work arounds is key.
