Tenimenti Luigi d'Alessandro (Manzano)

Il Bosco Cortona Syrah 2001

A silky deep ruby in the glass with a wide brim and no signs of bricking. The nose here is deliciously perfumed with plenty of cigar box and smoke upfront. The fruit is still alive and vibrant with black and blue berries and very faint notes of wild strawberry. Violets and menthol with a dash of white pepper. Really an outstanding nose for a twenty year old wine.

Truthfully this doesn’t scream Syrah to me at any point but it’s so damn good that you really end up caring about that. While it may not scream Syrah it definitely does invoke Tuscan scenes. Complex, refined, and full of depth and personality. The palate is downright fruity with a repeat of notes from the nose. Forest floor and dirt with more smoke. Full bodied and quite generous, this feels so much more youthful than it is. A spectacular Italian Syrah that still has plenty of time left.

Kleos Paestum Aglianico 2017

Flavorful Aglianico, but could use a few years of cellaring. This wine would be perfect with pizza, but I had it with pasta Bolognese. It starts out with rich, earthy flavors, but the finish is slightly too tannic. — a month ago

San Luigi Dolcetto di Dogliani 2020

Delectable Wine

The 2020 Dogliani San Luigi is fruity, open knit and delicious, with plenty of red cherry/plum fruit character. Bright floral notes perk up the finish. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2022)
