Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2008

Nice starter wine for my birthday dinner/evening. Just a classic BdM all around. At first that funk that blew off after about an hour. Then earth, dark berry, leather. This righteous wine was a perfect complement to my wife’s bolognese and my Filetto Al Gorgonzola that was cooked to perfection at our fav little Italian spot, La Rustica. Lisini delivers yet again. — 7 days ago

Uncomplicated Sangiovese goodness, with juicy red cherries and a light sage note. Clean and a touch short on the finish. — 14 days ago

Altesino

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

Closed on the nose, restricted in the mouth but revealing enough to show its potential. Quite fruit driven, a bit too much cassis for this type of wine. And still...a pleasure to drink. If you have any, stock it, there is a lot to come! — a day ago

A brilliant example that’s soaring right now.
Nose presents maraschino cherries. On the palate, the oak is regal and subtle. Deftly balanced with powdery tannins and bright acidity. All the components are integrated. Pure fruit with uncommon sweetness finish what is a polished example. Thank you, Mo for opening this gem.

Night 1 of the Fall WNH event in San Antonio. What a killer start to the extended weekend, all courtesy to Shawn and Jennifer for hosting! Tonight was Italian wines.

Gorgeous nose! Wow. Candied cranberry sauce. Perfect on the palate with cedar, and a beet juice finish. Killer bottle from
