Collezione Privata Toscana Syrah 2017

This Syrah is deep ruby.

On the nose is a medium(+) intensity of aromas, which include ripe black cherry, blackberry, plum, black cassis, licorice, star anise, violet, pepper, nutmeg, vanilla, tobacco, cedar, clove, leather, and earth.

On the palate this wine is dry with high alcohol (14.5% ABV), a full body, medium(+) acidity, medium(+) tannins that are ripe, soft, and fine-grained, medium(+) intensity of flavors consistent with the nose and a medium(+) finish.

This wine is drinking beautifully now, but could improve in its aromatic complexity with additional aging; it’s capable of developing more dried fruit character and earthy notes. It has the structure to carry it further.

It’s delicious! Cheers to Tuscan Syrahs!!

Isole Olena Toscana Chardonnay 2018

This wine is medium gold. The nose opens up to a bouquet of stone and tropical fruit notes such as ripe peach, apricot, papaya, starfruit, melon, and cantaloupe.

Other primary aromas include orange peel, wet stone, white blossom, and salinity. This wine also has secondary notes of sweet cream, brioche, pencil shavings, and vanilla.

The flavors on the palate are consistent. It’s a full bodied white with high alcohol (14%) and has a rich mouthfeel, balanced by a dose of acidity.

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2019

Popped and poured; no formal notes. Opened this to sip on while I made sauce for dinner and it hits the spot 👌🏽. The 2019 Isole e Olena CC is clean and expressive with dusty dark cherries, black tea, orange pith, dry earth. Good structure for a variety of meals. Bone dry. A long, slightly bitter finish. A textbook CC. Drink now or over the next 5-10 years. — 2 months ago

Cepparello Toscana Sangiovese 1997

Presented itself as a grumpy uncle when I pulled the cork and poured a glass.
After an hour or so, as the wine reached room temperature, it got more friendly and interesting.
Cherries and plums, forestfloor, wet tea leaves, beef stock, tomato tapenade, cinnamon and warm chestnuts.
Drinking very nicely now.
