Sator Tintilia del Molise 2013

9.1

Just crazy. Tintilia FTW. Huge spices. Insane spices. Complex nuts. Licorice. Plum, blackberry and just such an intense nose. Remarkable nose. Palate is juicy and thick but also fresh and acidic. Interesting contrast. Balanced and ripe but also lean and mineral. A prickle Of Heat takes away a tiny bit. — 20 days ago

Di Majo Norante

Molise Sangiovese

A delightful sangiovese. Taste of deep cherry nose, a spicy, tanned leather. Bright tart cherry. An excellent choice for a casual meal of pizza or pasta in marinara. Just a very solid everyday wine. — a month ago

Riserva Sator Tintilia del Molise 2011

Third night in Seabrook, WA. Brick red color with some secondary/truffle aromatics adding savory accents to the red fruit. Earthy notes ahead of some red berries. Tannins are giving way a bit to some secondary savory character. Excellent wine. — a month ago

Really need to get my hands on this elusive Molise varietal

Baloon

Nero d'Avola 2017

I’ve been saving this wine for the visit of my brother who lives out of country. I don’t get to see him very often. It’s medium bodied with tastes of cranberry and raspberry. Though it’s very nice maybe in another year it will be even better. — 19 days ago

Arcanum

Toscana Red Blend 2010

60% Cabernet Franc, 25% Merlot & 15% Cabernet Sauvignon

Nose has spring rose, rain moistened red raspberry, black currant and fresh sage.

Palate has lightly tannic blackberry, wet leather, ripe black currant, cigar box, wet clay and tarry black cherry.

Paired with a long cooked Bolognese sauce over fettuccine. Decanted ~3hr, more time in the decanter would benefit. Future bottles can be 2022+

Happy Father's Day 2019 to all. Today I'm posting pictures of our kids, yes they are all furry, independent and somewhat self-interested. Two boys (8) and two girls (2), sisters, all rescued. They generally bring the utmost of joy to my life on a daily basis. It has been a rainy and relaxing day here, everyone is loving the slow pace of life today.

I think that Delectable needs to be able to tag cat+wine posts so that I can make a bookmark for felines.

9.4

Love this. What a nose. Plum, spice, black licorice, herbs, black cherry, black berry. Awesome. Juicy and complex with wonderful velvety texture and some bitter cocoa! Awesome. Palate is very refined for Sagrantino. Tannins are so good. Terrific freshness and acidity. Very complex already but will gain with age. Tremendous finish. Really amazing finesse for such a large scaled wine. However much I sold this for is too cheap. — 13 days ago
