Riserva Pipparello Montefalco Rosso Sangiovese Blend 2012

Exuding savory and meaty elements, all wrapped up in sexy and abundant black fruit. Roasted black cherry, soaked plum, beef jerky, hoisin, truffle, animal hide, hung meat, clove, Ceylon cinnamon, Indian spices, wilted flowers, tar, sweet wood smoke, scrubland, baked earth. Tannins are granular, powerful, but have a texture is forgiving as they drive down the middle palate. I’m a sucker for these wines. Wild, soulful, unapologetic and true. — 3 days ago

@Josh Morgenthau it’s their best wine in my opinion. And yes my dog (named Bea 😆) always wants a glass!

Amazing! And sorry Bea if there was a mistaken gender assignment 😉

Bric dël Fiasc Barolo Nebbiolo 2007

This wine has evolved quite a bit in the last two years. So, I’d say this medium to full-bodied Barolo is “A Point” right now.
Beautiful secondaries have entered the stage, showing subtle nuances of tobacco, earth, antiqueshop and truffle sprinkled over the lifted, feminine flavors of dried roses and cherries and figs.
Gorgeous.

Collezione di Paolo Chianti Sangiovese Blend 2017

San Valentino Sangiovese Blend 2014

Pop and pour. Quite a bit of VA on the nose that never fully dissipated but the bottle was consumed too quickly to allow for it. Regardless, it wasn’t overwhelming for our palates and even some relative novices and Bea virgins remarked on how much they loved it. Dark fruits, very tightly coiled at this point with exotic spices. Firm tannins. Super duper young but a winner in a vintage when this was the only red wine that Bea produced. Really ought to have an extended decant. I’m a buyer...hoping to find more. — 16 days ago

Santa Chiara Umbria Bianco Malvasia Blend 2016

Just enough “funk” for orange wine fans, but not too much that it will put off the “funk averse.” Really excellent dinner wine in general, with nice citrus and acidity. — 21 days ago

Pagliaro Secco Montefalco Sagrantino 2011

This is the real deal. Deep deep fruit, black cherries and blackberries and plums BUT totally lifted too with some floral mystery- violets? Spice and concentration. Little acetone and sweetness. Sensual but still harsh. Needs much more time. But seriously incredible wine. So intense and pure. And clean. Excited to see where this will go. — 16 days ago

Collezione di Paolo Chianti Sangiovese 2018

Sooo easy to drink. Yummy nose but nothing complex other than some plum, deep fruit, like a Sangria smell. The taste is smooth and drinkable, but not complex. — 16 hours ago
