Argiano

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2019

Deep Ruby with aromas of ripe dark berry fruits, herb spice and earthy notes. On the palate flavors of black cherry and plum with cacao, cedar, licorice and pepper spice. Fine tannins, still a little grippy, great balance, complex long finish ending with earthy herbs, fruit and oaky notes. Nice! — 16 hours ago

Masseto

Toscana Merlot 2018

Rare sighting. Lucky to drink them side by side. Both a bit young and powerful with so much aging potential. Massetino is mostly Merlot with some Cab Franc. Masseto is all Merlot. Distinctly different though. Massetino being the more robust and Masseto being the more elegant. Then again. So much potential. — 9 days ago

Tenuta Sette Ponti

Oreno Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2019

It’s still too young for me but I wanted to pull one. Medium nose where I get a bit of green-ness. The finish is light and there is a bit of green on the palate as well. Hoping the rest get better with age. — 17 hours ago

Even in its youth, I’d expect a better showing than what you experienced. This hailed from a strong vintage in Tuscany. I hope it puts on some weight for you.

Montevertine

Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2019

Médium ruby , medium ruby pink rim . Needs time to open up , with spiced red cherry , cut herbs , violets , slightly toasty hints . On the palate very intense red fruits , high acidity and quite gritty tannin . Quite raw and young this , really needs time . Quite saline and mineral on the long , quite lean finish , menthol tinged finish . Needs 5-10 years really will last a further 10 . Very promising . — 23 days ago

Casanova di Neri

Tenuta Nuova Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2016

Serious wine this. Oaky with dark fruits and tobacco. Already balanced despite its youth. Definately not one of the lighter Brunellos. I loved this but drinkers seeking lithe, acidic elegance will be disappointed. — 14 days ago
