Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2016

OMG... Sorry it's my first time...
Visually, this presents as a few years older with a pink to red brick rim. On the nose, the open releases red cherry... With time it mellows to black cherry... If you could elegantly bottle Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia it would start you on the path of creating this wine. The blanket of milk chocolate is like a King's robe. There is a vague hint of baking spices up front. Custardy throughout. Tannins are on on-guard and alert waiting ready, willing, and able to withstand the darkness of the caverns until brighter days. Probably my favorite bottle to date.

Pian delle Vigne Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 1999

A very satisfying brunello but i think they are getting to the end of the plateau here. Lots of herbal/balsam notes little fruit left. Happy to have opened this before it starts to go downhill — 23 days ago

Aurata Chardonnay 2011

Last had this in 2015, and it is SO much better now. Shook off some of its baby fat and is now drinking beautifully. Underappreciated wine from the best winemaker in the Willamette Valley! — 15 days ago

Badia a Passignano Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 1999

Side by side testing the 97 and 99...the 99 was much better with still a good tannic backbone and length. Both however were still very much alive. — 25 days ago

Tenuta Guado al Tasso Cont'Ugo Bolgheri Merlot 2017

Full body Merlot from the super Tuscan region made by Antinori. Red fruit forward (black cherry, plum) with deep red in colour with silky tannin. Great length on the palate; can notice the style/hints of the big brother Tig. Beautiful. — 4 days ago

Castello della Sala Cervaro della Sala Umbria Chardonnay Grechetto 2017

This was a favorite of the week at the beach. Great acidity to balance out some oak notes, but the finish sang and the wine evolved. Would have blinded this as new world chard if not for the banging acidity. — 24 days ago
