Tua Rita

Rosso dei Notri SuperTuscan Blend 2011

Super Tuscan blend of Sangiovese (50%), Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) and Merlot (20%). Light ruby color. Totally funky aromas. (Not much fruit at all.) However, the palate is full of cherry fruit with hints of toasted nuts and tobacco. Tannins are quite soft. Decent acidity. Aging quite well. Thanks for sharing, Ron B! — 17 days ago

Tenuta Degli Dei Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2018

Super Tuscan, ripe tannins, cherry and cola. Good but why? Stick to Sangiovese please, why do you need French grapes. Still have to drink the first Super Tuscan I care about even though they are technically sound and delicious. — a month ago

Cà dei Frati

I Frati Lugana Turbiana 2021

Never had one of these before. Zesty citrus start with a nice and smooth peachy stone fruit finish. Med+ acidity, med- alcohol, pale gold. Slightly effervescent that makes for a nice refreshing zing. — 9 days ago

Cantine Antonio Caggiano

Macchia dei Goti Taurasi Aglianico 2013

Spicy Blueberry on the nose. Red fruit, black pepper, nice acid and long dry finish. (Grilled steak, kale salad, fresh asparagus, pan fried morels, seeded crostinis - dinner on the lanai) — 25 days ago

Tenute Cisa Asinari dei Marchesi di Grésy

Gaiun Martinenga Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2016

Dried roses, Bing cherry, damp earth, baking spice. And that very Italian dusty/chalky smell, like a stone cold church basement. Sexy mouthfeel. Had with carbonara and guanciale. — 11 days ago
