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...

Decanted 3H.

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

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. β€” 4 days ago

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 β€” 5 days ago

Ca' Rozzeria

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2017

Unlike prior iterations of this β€œsecret” private label for Garagiste, the cork had no identifying marks denoting the estate from which it came. (I think the 16 sported a Casa Emma cork, if memory serves.) But regardless who made this, it’s really good. Dark ruby color. Great nose of violets, deeply intense dark cherry, some crushed gravel, and a slight balsamic note. Intense in the mouth, it’s lots of fruit and florals at first, but then gives way to loads of cooling crushed stone minerality, and ends quite savory. Good acids, and lots of soft tannin. Will improve for at least a couple more years, maybe more. β€” 16 days ago

Ca'Marcanda Promis Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2018

An extremely balanced wine! Opens up with raspberries and cherries on the nose. Has a delicious fruity characteristic. Mulberries and raspberries on the pallet. Leaves the mouth watering. medium bodied with soft tannins and does not sucker punch like many super Tuscans. Still very young, recommend to decant. β€” 11 days ago

P: Beautiful Cherries, iron, cinnamon, spice, great acidity. A great food wine.
