Elit Eighteen Vodka

Stoli’s response to grey goose comes up short. A bit too much cloying sweetness on the nose and first taste for me. Not worth the price for sure. — 10 days ago

Rubesco Rosso di Torgiano Sangiovese 2016

Beautifully balanced! Must decant for an hour & maintain 16C temp. Velvety smooth in mouth with cherry, chocolate & oak layers. Delivers a little tomato acid in back of mouth with its enjoyable but moderate length finish. Fantastic when paired with savoury ground veal in a vodka sauce over fresh pasta🍷 — 2 months ago

Grey Goose


I hate to say it, but this stuff really is a higher class of vodka. No off, medicinal notes. No cloying artificial sweetness. It just tastes like the cleanest, purest spring water was made magically alcoholic. — a month ago

Al Passo Toscana Merlot Sangiovese 2014

From a sub-optimal vintage, this blend was considerably less dynamic/powerful than the ‘15 or ‘16. Nevertheless, what it lacked in excessive concentration it made up for in articulation and Balance. Classically paired with angel hair & vodka bolognese.  — 17 days ago


Rennina Pieve Santa Restituta Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 1995

Acquired recently from auction Solid cork removed via Durand. Right into the decanter with filtering.

Immediately vibrant and fruity aroma. Just smells fresh and bright. First few sips - cherry. Sage underbrush. Needs food.

More notes coming after the chicken parm alla vodka sauce is ready for pairing.
