Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 1983

Dug out of a deep cellar recently, I honestly didn’t think it would be alive.
It was!
Holding up consistently over 2 hours, it probably will also provide nice drinking in 5+ years for those of us who like them with age.

Testamatta Toscana Sangiovese 2016

I own the ‘15 and was completely disappointed that it is still sooo tight . I passed on buying the ‘16, now to my regret. This one is singing even young. Tradition Sangiovese. A breath of sunny Tuscany. Ripe red fruit and that burnt Tuscan dirt. Just amazing. Long finish with medium plus acidity for long cellaring. — 3 days ago

Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2017

Antinori Wine Dinner. The main event. Paired with lamb shank and veggies. This is a very approachable Tig. Pungent red fruit, tobacco, and spice on a lithe mineral-tinged frame. Not as great as other vintages in recent history but outstanding nevertheless. — 8 days ago

Tenuta di Arceno

Il Fauno di Arcanum Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2016

Early ripening Bordeaux Blend of 51% Merlot, 31% Cab Franc, 17% Cab Sauv & 1% Petit Verdot. Dark Ruby with aromas of rich berry fruits with notes of spice, herb and forest floor. On the palate flavors of ripe blackberry and cherry with cinnamon and mushroom. Soft fine tannins, rich mouthfeel well balanced with vivid acidity. Long finish ending with fruit, cedar and tobacco. Will benefit from some short term aging, Nice value!! — 3 days ago

Castello dei Rampolla

Sammarco Toscana SuperTuscan Blend 2018

@Delectable this is the Donna Liu. First vintage of Rampolla’s 100% merlot. Hints of a Pomerol but more fruit forward embedded with some cassis hints. Good tannic backbone which proves the best is yet to come. Castello dei Rampolla rocks! — 10 hours ago

Tenuta San Guido

Guidalberto Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2018

Wine o'clock watch pairing ...

Mid-2000s Omega Speedmaster Reduced II 3539.50.

This Guido needs a lot more time for my taste. It opens with promising barnyard aromas that subside and give way to oak -- which are fairly dominant in my opinion. Unripe red fruits, a mineral/metallic cherry taste (I know, makes no sense). Medium bodied, medium alcohol, double dry tannins. Finish of sour cherry.

I will buy another bottle to hold for 2-3 years and expect I'll score it 2 points higher meanwhile in Sept 2020, it's a 91+ on my scale.

91+ points

Tenuta Argentiera

Villa Donoratico Bolgheri Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

Очень приличное и приятное, классически тосканское. На запах ярко-кисло, надо декантировать. На вкус чернослив, ягоды, кислотно, капелька конюшни. Очень пристойно. — 6 days ago

Buccia Nera

'Pa Ro' Bianco Toscana IGT 2017

Picked this up from Eataly at their new Westfield location around WTC.

Oranges galore. Apricot. Citrus, tangerines, pomelo, come one come all. The great tangerine is in town. Ripe mango as well.

Mango juice mixed with orange soda. Lovely. Perfect balance of all the wonderful qualities of orange wine. Bubbles, natural unctuousness balances with honey and medium acidity.

Really blown away by this one at how simply it comes off.

Il Rosso Alfio Moriconi Selection Toscana Sangiovese 2019

Clear garnet. Nose of black cherry and roses. Medium light, fruity palate of black cherry, violets, and a hint of anise. Medium plus acidity. Medium minus tannins. Hey, it’s a solid Sangiovese that’ll go great with Italian-American fare or medium cheeses. Drink now. — 5 days ago
