Tuscany Sangiovese

Stella di Campalto Podere San Giuseppe

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2008

This was my first bottle i tasted from Stella and i remember comparing it to an Echezeaux, but it has gone nwxt level up in body and complexity
I know it's a Rosso, but it feels like a huge Brunello with extra power.
Rasperry, leather, balsamic and licorice which are what you look for in a Brunello..plus wild strawberries, white plums, blood orange and nectarines...black truffle, cola, bay leaves, cardamom and soy sauce..and more trust me...in the mouth it's a refined sangiovese grosso vibrant, in tension and super enjoyable.
Had a little bruise on the label and didn't make it to the auction...
Sublime..made me so happy
At peak and perhaps also for many more years too

Ugolaia Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

Great Brunello. Right in the beginning of its sweet spot. Fragrant nose gives way to sweet vibrant black fruit with subtle hints of Tuscan sun and rich tobacco. Medium plus acidity and lingering finish. Just delightful — 6 days ago

Case Basse di Gianfranco Soldera

Case Basse Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2005

A wine I have had many times but my 1st time having it next to the Poggio Sotto. The Soldera is a completely different Brunello showing lots of cherry, strawberry fruits, leather, spice with floral tones in an elegant & silky style, complex & layered that reminds me of what Burlotto’s Monvigliero is to Barolo. Always a Burgundy lovers Brunello! — 15 days ago

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2017

Performs way above its DOC. Complex nose of intense, winey cherries, loads of crushed rock-infused gravel, brambly notes, and roasted green herbs. Mouthfilling, soft, zingy with acids and minerality. Really fun. Will last and even improve over the next few years, which is kind of unusual for a Rosso D. — 5 days ago

Drank 7/20/21.

On the nose scents of black cherry are accompanied by clove, flowers, and some tar. Flavors of black cherry and earth are backed by medium, well integrated tannins, making this extremely light in the palate and easy to drink. Finishes with black cherry and cocoa.

4/21/9/5/3 + 50 = 92 pts.

A fantastic value.

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Deep, dark and structured Brunello. Drinking very well but would be interesting to follow. Some interesting depth but taking second place to the fruit right now. — 9 days ago

Because if you’re gonna drive all the way to Colorado, you might as well bring some wine with you, right? Steaks on the grill and this glassful of dusty earth, cherries, sandalwood and leather. Needs air, like a lot of Sangiovese, but after an hour it begins really singing. — a day ago

Bellaria

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2017

Nose has black cherry compote, recently sanded cedar, muddy garden soil and wet green herbals.

Palate has partially dried black cherry, blackberry, over-ripe black currant, crushed slate, medium tannins show this wine is still youthful.

A delicious wine showing lovely concentration and aromatics, rustic in style but high-minded as well. Drinking fantastic tonight, likely much better 2024+, might be hard to keep the remaining corks sealed for that long...
