Awaits in the wine fridge. Haven’t drank it yet, just documenting and passing time. Per the wine merchant in Cortona, Italy, reputed to be one of the finest winemakers for Brunello.…picked up in Cortona in 2019, waiting out the Brunello countdown…rating is a guess. — a month ago

Tenuta Sette Ponti

Oreno Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2014

My last ‘14, Sette Ponti or "seven bridges," refers to 7 bridges crossing Arno River on road from Arezzo to Florence. Blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cab Sauv & 10% Petit Verdot, aged 18 months, new French oak. Had ‘14 while ago, now tasting nicely. Dark Ruby with pronounced aromas of dark fruits, cigar box & earthy notes, touch of citrus. Flavors of cherry & plum with tobacco & spice. Fine chewy tannins, long finish ending with tobacco & mineral spice as the finish builds. Nice! Will continue to age! — 5 months ago

Migliara Cortona Syrah 2012

Full nose of light butter and blackberries. This is a special wine for a special occasion with friends. Just enough acidity and flavor. We aerated it but I feel it needs more time to open, but still amazing! — 3 months ago

Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2017

Wine world seems to love this wine. On one hand, it’s brilliant, but for me, a little too much going on.
