Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2018

Aroma is vanilla and chocolate notes but spices with more oxidization exposure: taste is higher Tannin, lingers longer, and sweeter taste. Delicious- pairs well with bolognese ragu. — a month ago

Bran Caia Ilatraia Maremma Toscana Red Blend 2013

e, reigned in by its Tuscan provenance—and that is a good thing, a food-friendly thing. The 2013 Brancaia Illatraia quietly unspools with notes of plums and ripe blackberries steeped in thyme. Burning embers, dust, and juniper berries add layered complexity. On the palate, it’s round and plush, with mouth-coating tannins and bright acidity that ebb and flow in a core of juicy dark fruit. Sample 14.0% ABV — 5 years ago

Il Blu Cabernet Sangiovese Blend 2016

Du bois, reglisse noire, tannins puissants et un peu asséchants, plein et riche, c’est bon mais dans un style manquant un peu de finesse et ayant besoin de temps. 90-91

Some oak and black liquorice. Good bottle but Needs more time, lacks some finesse to go with the power and richness.

Toscana Merlot Rosé 2016

Salmon! (In colour, not in taste).

Stoned! (The wine, not me).

Red berries.

I don’t know why I aged this as long as I did, but it was worth it.

Bran Caia Tre Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2016

Meaty, especially when first opened. On the nose it showed notes of tomato paste, smoked meat, and mushrooms. It was likewise quite earthy on the palate, with black fruit, red fruits singed by the sun, stones, and black pepper on the finish. It was full-bodied, and had medium + to high acid and tannins.

I would highly recommend decanting this wine as it started out quite tight when we first poured it. We also had a glass the next night, and it was MUCH better. It was richer, smoother, more polished, and less gamey, showing notes of licorice, violets, pomegranates, and even a little blood orange joining the party that had not been there the first night.

Had as a part of a pizza night.
