Cepparello Toscana Sangiovese 2006

Wednesday Wine Committee. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All tasted blind as usual.

I had this about 6months ago and notes were similar. Main difference here is this initially smelled like it had American oak influence. Tar, Rose petal, and underripe black cherry. Because of my initial thoughts, I called this Rioja. Nice.

Collezione Privata Toscana IGT Chardonnay 2016

Yellow to gold. Buttery, nutty, freshly baked bakeries; along with apples, apricot and pears. On the palate, rich and creamy, but also fresh and lively; beautiful contradictions. There's a distinctive aftertaste of minerals. Long finish. 94. — a month ago

Collezione de Marchi Chardonnay 2017

Totally jacked, but not hot or out of balance. Toasted brioche, hazelnut, juicy yellow fruits. Good acid backbone, long finish. Like a potent young Chassagne-Morgeot. — a month ago

Cepparello Estate Bottled Toscana Sangiovese 2015

Blew me away. Dry and pure with sweet oak tannins and a chocolate maraschino cherry core. Bordeaux-like perfume, elegance and grace. This will age well but not required if you have a decanter and an hour of restraint. — a month ago

@LM Segal great note. Thanks for sharing. Have you had any experience with the 2014 version? Curious if you can offer some comparative notes.

Fantastic summer Chardonnay from Tuscany: light and refreshing but with interesting body, not heavy like California Chardonnay. — a month ago
