Castel Giocondo Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2014

March 2024. Solid, classic, very enjoyable Brunello. Have had 2 vintages if this wine now. 2014 here and the 2016 in a restaurant. This 2014 (not a great vintage year) was surprisingly very good. The 2016 was young,so we decanted. It was much better, as expected given the great vintage year ‘16 was. Look forward to having more of this! — 18 days ago

Puer Apuliae Castel del Monte Nero di Troia 2004

At the end of its life but still kicking. Powerful Nero di Troia with smooth tannins. Perfect lamb accompaniment. Starting to pick up some balsamic notes but those flavors go well with lamb. — 8 months ago

Interesting and tasty red from Pulgia, not sure where obtained. Dark Ruby. Forest, mushroom and ripe dark fruits, keep one sniffing. minerals and acids in balance with almost velvety coating on palate. Long lingering finish. Wonder how it tastes when young. Found previous notes, AA18 red blend Predominantly Nero di Troia with Montepulciano per wine searcher. Last bottle. — 2 years ago

Domaine du Castel

Grand Vin Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

From a magnum bottle.
The cork was challenging, too dry and crumbled on its way out....
A very powerful nose and a full body, tasty, exceptional balanced wine is experienced.
