Collezione Privata Toscana Syrah 2015

Classical Syrah, with a touch of Viognier. Perfect Northern Rhône in style with leather, spices and a bit of grilled meat but with ample fruit. Great juicy acidity. A beautiful wine. — 10 months ago

Cepparello Toscana Sangiovese 2015

This is probably my favourite Sangiovese for the money so thought I’d take one for the community & try the new 2015 @ £65 so you know if you should buy 😉 The 07 is stunning now & this 15 is drinking well but should be just as fab but is lighter at present 😉 We drank 3 bottles over the weekend 😊 Oakier than others I’ve had but not dominating 😉

🐮 The 3rd bottle paired perfectly w/ Mrs Es slow cooked Beef Stew & Dumplings in gloopy gravy 😍 on a cold rainy ☔️ day

📍 Isole e Olena Cepparello 2015

🏵 92-93 today w/ potential for 95-96 I’d say

Collezione Privata Toscana IGT Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Classical cassis & cedar with some pencil shavings, too. On the palate quite restrained with well polished tannins and great acidity. Quite complex and very nice. — 10 months ago
