Castello Di Albola

Castello Romitorio

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Delectable Wine

Good full red. Tobacco, mint and earth notes complement red cherry aromas and flavors. Very fresh and precise, with a steely element to its red fruit and herbal flavors that linger nicely on the clean, juicy and floral finish. Blessed with a relatively high but harmonious acid mouthfeel and impeccable balance, this will likely age better than many other 2015 Brunellos. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, April 2020)

Impresive. Gattinara, a more remarkable part of Piëmont. Had some great wines from it.

Castello dei Rampolla

Vigna d'Alceo Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot Blend

Drunk over two days. Dark red core, slightly cloudy. Powerful aroma of currant, blackberry, blueberry, and then earthy and tobacco notes. Full bodied and very silky. A beauty with plenty of life ahead. Didn’t notice major changes the second day other than the wine being more open. — 15 days ago

Infantacide but wanted to see if this was up to its accolades....initial impression was no but after an hour of air it was two even better. A very enjoyable wine now that could be spectacular down the road... — 2 days ago

Castello di Camigliano

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Delectable Wine

Moderately saturated medium red. Strawberry, honey and flint on the nose and palate. Then fairly steely in the mouth, but boasting nice concentration and an appealing sweetness. Finishes broad and smooth, but I would have liked a little more length for an even higher score. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, April 2020)

Riserva Castello Banfi Poggio All'Oro Brunello di Montalcino 2007

Wine #1,000 Amazing! Decanted for 30 minutes. Tannins are easing and softening rush as this is still improving with age.
Wondeful aromas of dark fruit and a touch of vanilla. Highly structured black cherry, plum, violet, and a slight saline on the palate. Luckily still have a few more of these to age. So good!

Sammarco Toscana SuperTuscan Blend 1995

Found this bottle in an enoteca during our skiing holiday(at 35€!!!). Tertiary notes on the nose but secondary in taste. Age 25 and still going strong. Nevertheless I prefer the Sammarco in a younger phase. If tasted blind I would have guessed a left bank Bordeaux. I adore this winery, a big “bravo”! — 25 days ago
