Il Marroneto

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese

Nose was muted but the wine great. balance and integrated tannins led to the medium plus body that was highlighted by raspberry jam. Sensuous mouth feel and the longer finish the highlight was beautiful Brunello  — 13 days ago

Il Paradiso di Frassina

Moz Art Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

Gorgeously supple and open fruit. Not a barnstormer of a vintage but all is very open knit and lush without excessive bite from alcohol. Very good. — 9 days ago

I love the reined-in balance of the 13 Brunellos I’ve had.

Castello di Amorosa

Il Brigante Red Blend 2013

Decanted and swirled. Aroma of old world dusty dark fruit. Big big dark fruit up front the a burst of tannic dryness in the middle. Then a fast finish to a mild dusty dryness. — 9 days ago

Il Censo

Praruar Terre Siciliane Catarratto

2016. A nice funky nose with an amber hue. Controlled astringency, overall delicate profile. Florals but can’t pinpoint. Funk but can’t pinpoint. Salinity but can’t pinpoint. Might be on the decline but it is still a great bottle. — 3 days ago

Il Chiosso

Il Chiosso Gattinara Galizja 2011

This Nebbiolo emphasizes terroir rather than fruit. The nose is showing secondary notes that lead with intense crushed-rock laden gravel and old mahogany furniture scents, with only a wee bit of cherry fruit peeking through. Intense and very minerally in the mouth, this still has some tannin to burn. The finish is remarkably long and a tad bitter. Quite unique and atypical but still very good. Needs rich, rustic food. — a month ago

Buglioni il Disperato Venezie IGT

Totally surprised by this one. Bought on a whim when saw end of bin closeout at Binny’s for $6. Very fruit and mineral driven but very dry. Guava, grapefruit and pineapple up front. Mineral undertones with almost effervescent finish. Really liked this wine. Would buy again at higher at normal price. — 2 days ago
