Conti Consantani

Brunello Di Montalcino 2013

From half bottle. Aromas of leather loam and a little plum but essentially very savoury with fine sandy tannins. Oak is there but not overbearing. Loved the wine and a great accompaniment to Pork Belly. Met the owner and chef Tony Percuoco. A great restaurant and a regular for us when visiting Brisbane. His 2 brothers run the equally good Fellinis on the Gold Coast and Armando is the chef and owner of Buon Ricordo one of Sydney’s best Italian restaurants. All 3 highly recommended. — 12 days ago

Castello Romitorio

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2007

Great level of maturity here, classic aged Brunello. Nice weight, tannins and acid offer posture, shows the warmth of the vintage in its generosity and open knit appeal. Warm core of muddled plum, dried cherry, tar, wood smoke, worn leather, pipe tobacco, asian spices, amaro, balsamic. Ample, juicy, elegant and fantastic with food. — 11 days ago

Gran Conti

Sangiovese

A very good wine and not just for the price. It was super smooth and full of flavor. I liked that it was fruity and full of flavored and didn't over power the meal it was paired with. A very nice find. Highly recommend it. — 4 days ago

Castello di Ama

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 1980

This was before the 1982 sale of Castello. Little info, but this is pre-replanting of mid-80s, very pastoral expression. Eye opening Tuscan gem. — 7 days ago

Riserva Corte della Meridiana Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo

Fantastic wine. Just crazy good for price point, and a special angle on Nebbiolo. Apparently the grapes grow on such a steep hill the pickers need mountain climbing skills to get them. — 2 days ago

Castello della Sala Cervaro della Sala Umbria Chardonnay Grechetto 2011

Solid Chardonnay that was very enjoyable with dinner tonight. From what I could understand from the label, this is a Chardonnay heavy wine with Grechetto as the secondary grape variety. this one poured a little darker amber color than I was expecting. Nose was apricot, peach, and minerals. Entry of this wine was quite soft. Buttered popcorn with definitely more of a sweet citrus... Pineapple and ripe pear. Gains more acidity towards the middle and finish. Finishes with more of to stone-ground fruits and dried herbs. I think this wine is drinking really well right now. I don't really think this is going to improve any more in the bottle, so drink up! — 11 hours ago

9.4

One of the extra bottles from the Jack Winery and ARNYCA Cellars tasting last night with Steve Distler.

Deep purplish red with ruby edges. Well balanced nose with layers of earth, red currants, tobacco, damp earth and a touch floral. Medium dry tannins (6/10) with a medium plus body. Quite a bit of acidity with bramble, black currants, cherries and earthiness. Long finish. Drink till 2024.
