Haven’t posted in a while but this one is worth the effort. De Scala Dei only makes this in exceptional years and this blend clearly hits the mark. — 2 days ago

Fattoria dei Barbi (Colombini)

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

Takes its name from the free-spirited gentleman named Bruscone who lived in the woods of the Barbi Estate. Enticing Ruby with sweet red berry aromas and earthy notes. On the palate cherry, licorice and sweet plum showing nicely. Fine tannins, well balanced on lingering finish ending with earthy herb tones. Needs decanting or cellar aging. Very nice! — 18 days ago

Massipa de Scala Dei Priorat Garnatxa Blanca Xenin 2015

Having tasted the 2017 at the domain last week I thought to give the 2015 a go. Golden yellow color. Great nose with herbs and some stone fruit.
Very balanced in the mouth with nice acidity.

@Wil Demandt it is indeed great experience in that Beautiful surroundings. I have already metioned once to Dick that we should meet and share some experiences (and wine lol) as we seem to have a lot of similar interests.

Tenute Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Grésy

Riserva Camp Gros Martinenga Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2012

Took 2 hrs to open up, but excellent when it did. Dried roses and asphalt, complex on the palate with fine layers of red and black cherry, tobacco leaf. Long as all get out. Years to go. At Settimo Roma on the rooftop of Rome Sofitel Villa Borghese - worth the price for the view and great food/service. — 9 days ago

Castello dei Rampolla

Sammarco Toscana SuperTuscan Blend 2013

If @Cathy Corison made cab blends in Tuscany, they would be this great. Complex, begging for some age to strut. Gorgeous aromatics after an hour decant, followed by layers of dark and light red berry, asian spice, bridle leather and a hint of mint. Built to last (but no oak or vanilla to speak of), just silky tannins front to back. Outstanding. 20 years to go. — 9 days ago
