Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

16.5+. Classico indeed, except that chianti wasn’t as good 30 years ago. The Sangiovese really comes through in a distinctive way in this wine. Great year, pity to drink it so young, but that’s what I could get at the Coop in Chianciano (good range, by the way - Caparzo, Altesino, ...). — a year ago

Brandy di Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

Like many of my wines, I believe this was a gift from @Sam Shepard. Not sure what I did to deserve such generosity. Perhaps all those phone calls during the Summer of ‘05. Or maybe plotting out Ozark life ‘20. At any rate, this is very good, pours a nice ruddy color. Tannins definitely grab you; mellow but present spices, and as the great — well not sure he was great but he sure was on TV a lot — Chris Berman once said, “you’re with me, leather.” (Google it.) — 2 months ago

Our 40th Harvest Brunello-di-Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

Good, not great. Needs some time. Once it opened up after about 2 hours I could see potential for a really good brunello at a good price point (pre-arrival price of $35 at K&L wine merchants) — 2 months ago

Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

Starts out super reductive but with some decanting blooms like crazy. This wine could go in the cellar for decades. — 7 months ago
