Fattoria Petrolo

Torrione Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2004

Nose has dried blackberry, ripe blackberry, dried black currant, old leather, roses, dry potting soil and cut strawberry.

Palate has ripe blackberry, black cherry, cigar, dried cherry, dark chocolate powder with a long finish. Fine tannins still make themselves known, noting the potential of longevity. Exceptional.

Our last bottle on this vintage, it had been a good run, but quite likely this bottle will continue to evolve thru 2024+. 100% Sangiovese.

Pulled the cork, 6h of breathing, then 90m of decant before dinner. Paired to a slowly cooked Bolognese sauce, as expected they worked well. It was a cool and breezy day today, highs in the low 60's (F). The end of May is going out like early May came in, chilly. We got back into the 40's last night, but at least no snow like the first weekend!

Dogajolo Toscano Sangiovese Blend 2017

Me encanta este vino, había probado uno del 2016, aproveche y compre este del 2017, no tiene pierde vino fresco, frutado, la madera casi no se percibe, de color guinda profundo, en nariz: frutado, cerezas, café, vainilla, en boca: ligero, fresco, suave, frutado, redondo. De rancho nos invitaron un guiso de carne y arroz a la jardinera, ensalada de tomate, palta y lechuga, ¡delicioso! Calidad precio muy buena, temperatura 15° -16° C ¡Un abrazo! — 6 days ago

Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2015

Fresh red cherry, red berries with an undertone of réglisse. Silky tannin, great depth which requires a good hour to open. Once opened amazing nose that takes you to another place, a place you feel high! Must be the alcohol. Great 2015 vintage for this super Tuscan. Cheers — 8 days ago

Poggio al Tesoro

Solosole Toscana Vermentino 2017

Impressive rendition of this varietal but not for faint of heart: this is an austere lean angular beast w/razor sharp acidity and plenty of minerality & saline mingled w/herbaceousness. Echoes of kumquat & lime in 2nd day, but this remains a wine for seafood, salad or specific light fare. — 6 days ago

Percarlo Toscana Sangiovese 2015

Wow...this is sangiovese to another level. Unmistakably Italian but the quality of the fruit here is uncompromising. Needs a few years to open up pretty sure the score will be higher here. — a day ago

Maremma Toscana Sangiovese 2017

Straightforward Sangiovese. Easy red hue, tart cherries, light on the mouthfeel with maximum acidity and firm tannings. The perfect pairing for red sauce pizza. — 5 days ago
