Badia a Passignano Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2005

A production that was under the name riserva but which received the designation gran selezion in 2009.

Color still purple almost no signs of aging. The nose is super open on blackcurrant, leather, balsamic vinegar. On the palate the acidity is moderately strong, the tannins still present and alcohol is average. Very nice balance. Blackcurrant notes on the palate, cherries, leather and lots of herbs (oregano, sage etc). Tannins a little drying. The final is medium but very pleasant.

In all I was afraid that the bottle is too old for a 2005 vintage in Chianti but far from it. The wine still has a lot of fruit and some secondary but not tertiary notes. Sangiovese is so beautiful a grape for the long hau if it's done well!

Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 1999

Nice wine, but probably slightly over the hill. Tannins still there but the balance is a bit faded at this point. Still a nice wine with good acid. — 7 days ago

Wow! Best Italian chard we have had. Coppertone, coconut, green apple, underripe pineapple, lemon, saline, white flowers. Like a really delicious village burg. A complete steal for $14 at Costco. — 4 days ago

Still awesome today. Deep with cinnamon and spice. The fruit is getting a touch plummy but there is still some youth here. Great wine — a day ago
