Villa Antinori Toscana Sangiovese Blend

Pulled from my cellar, popped and poured and presented double-blind to the group. In the glass, the wine appears a deep garnet with a translucent core, a slightly orange rim and some signs of fine sediment on the glass. On the nose, the wine is mature with initial notes of Tootsie Roll and old leather bound books. However after about 40min in the glass, the nose brightens up and begins to show more varietal characteristics: cherries, desiccated flowers, fennel, damp earth, leather and espresso. On the palate, the wine is bone dry and the tannin’s are still quite firm. Acid is medium+ and the finish is long. Alcohol is medium. A very lovely mature wine! Guesses were all in Italy but further north in Piemonte (Barbaresco mostly) and much, much younger with most settling on late 90’s. I don’t drink a lot of modern wines from Antinori but this was quite the charmer with 41 years of age on it. If anyone has any well stored examples, drink now with about 40min of air. That being said, there is enough life for these to soldier on for another 5-10 but this is very clearly in the twilight of its life. Something else of note: the cork was extracted completely intact. It was one of those cute little stubby ones more typical of the time. — 2 days ago

Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2017

Another one from last night’s birthday dinner. I had a little left to revisit on day 2 and it is still amazing. What a classic. I could sit with this for a long time. The smokey, deep dark fruit/licorice, and velvety mouthfeel, all make this wine shine. This one will definitely improve with more age. Easily one of the top 5 wines of the year for me. — 14 days ago

Pian delle Vigne Vignaferrovia Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

What a wonderful expression of Brunello! Cherries and oak on the nose. Developed and ample red fruits dominate the palate with a finish of lingering tobacco. — 15 days ago

Badia A Passignano Gran Selezione Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2012

Big cherry, ripe and full, Tuscan leather. Bad vintage, great wine. Antinori knows what they’re doing. The age helps. — 18 days ago

Badia a Passignano Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2017

Excellent Chianti. Good balance between initial fruit flavor with complexity and nice acid taste back of pallate taste.  — 16 days ago

Pian delle Vigne Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2016

Black Cherries, tobacco, spices and a hint of oak on the nose. Very well resolved tannins on a medium bodied wine that has lots to it. Works well by itself, even better with food. Modern in style but not overdone nor anything. Great stuff. — a month ago
