Gran Selezione San Lorenzo Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2013

Celebrating a new job offer tonight with some Filet Mignon and this beauty of a wine I’ve been sitting on. Rich and brooding fruit forward Chianti with a savory backbone. Blackberry, black cherry and plum skin, charred herbs, forest floor, new leather, dried purple flowers and sweet and spicy baking spices (clove and cinnamon). Medium plus acidity with medium plus, grippy tannins, medium plus body, long length of finish. High quality wine from one of the best Chianti producers out there. Definitely a treat! — a month ago

Castello della Sala Cervaro della Sala Umbria Chardonnay Grechetto 2017

Ooh bah oom ba ba.robust but dainty majorettes holding down the somewhat-oaky doc here. Sooooo bright! Acid keen! Alcohol still potent but this is no...I don’t know the right metaphor. It’s good. — 19 days ago

Time to drink this beauty. 2007 was the last year before the premium plots were carved out to make premium wine. — 25 days ago

Santo Stefano Riserva Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2001

Beautiful. Mature, but at that stage where the fruit retains freshness even as it morphs into wonderful mature Nebbiolo. An 01 in a very good place now. — 4 days ago

Meant to add. No sediment at all. Must have been filtered.

Sotto Castello di Novello Barolo Nebbiolo 2010

Without a question, the darkest Barolo I've ever had. Deep dark red, with a rim that's beginning to turn. Cherry tobacco, chocolate. Very firm tannins, 15% ABV, 2010.... I bet this could lay down to sleep for a long long time.

Forgot to log this one. Surprisingly good, at an affordable price ($15 ish). Well balanced, with enough grip to handle some meat, and enough fruit/acidity to pair with tomato sauce. Very well done. No formal notes taken.
