Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2019

Amazing value-driven “Baby Brunello.” Bright garnet (tending to the dark side) color. Prolific nose of red cherry and oak. Expressive pallet of cherry, blackberry, tobacco and a bit of balsamic vinegar. Smooth tannins. Medium-plus body. Outstanding structure and balance. Beautiful acidity. This one punches way above its price point. Thank You for sharing, Kase. — 7 days ago

Castel Giocondo Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Sangiovese 1995

Recent acquisition from my Italy trip. Excellent Brunello - typical licorice, cedar and black cherry notes I love in this style of wine with the body and acidity to bring it all together. Damn I wish I had more of these. — 8 hours ago

Val di Suga (Angelini)

Spuntali Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Nice Brunello but not really singing at this point in its evolution. Also bearing some characteristics of the ripe / hot year, though to be honest less than I feared. Opened in the morning and by dinner was drinking well, at least when paired with some nice prime burgers. — 6 days ago

S.J. Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2016

Big, decadent plummy chocolate covered strawberries. A supervillain from Tuscany. 80% Sangio, 20% merlot. Bright in the mouth with vibrant cherry acid. Finish of decimated fleshy preserved strawberries. Big (14.5%), but not brooding. — 13 days ago

Azienda Agricola Cordella

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Definitely much better after a day of opening up. Little harsh at first blush but mellows into some chewy fig and light cooked fruit flavors. Round finish and the nose a bit like green persimmons or younger unripe fruit which was really different. — 11 hours ago
