Cathy, I agree completely on the quality and value here. Case buy almost every year and it ages beautifully often more than 10 years.

Castello di Neive

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2016

Really nice wine I picked up at Costco. Medium to light bodied, tart cherries, dry strawberries, cardboard (good thing), and wet rock. High acidity with a tart cherries tast. Coats the tongue for awhile but that is what I like. Would by again — 15 days ago

Castello di Albola

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2015

Medium Ruby with red fruit aromas and floral spice. On the palate cherry and raspberry with notes of sweet earthy spice. Fine tannins on a medium+ finish, good balance with acidity yielding to a fresh ending with a zing of spice. Drinks well now! Nice! — 17 days ago

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2017

Toscana wine evening #2
Typical Chianti Classico with bright black cherry and tomato leaf. A touch of savoury leather / herby side, too. Light & elegant on the palate with bright acidity balancing the fruit.
I prefer the Chiantis from the western hills vs the rest - not as burly & long lived, but so fresh & elegant.

Rustic and yummy with Italian food. — a month ago

Barone Ricasoli

Castello di Brolio Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2010

Drinks more like a Barolo than a Sangiovese. Great nose and tannins. Stands up to a steak and not just basic Italian fare. — 4 days ago

Castello dei Rampolla

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

A beauty. Slightly cherry fruit forward, earth, graphite in the background. Peaked after a 45min decant. I wish I had purchased another bottle or two. — 12 days ago
