Podere Poggio Scalette

Il Carbonaione Alta Valle della Greve IGT Sangiovese 2001

We recently pulled some cases out of storage, which haven't seen the light of day for nearly 15 years, so I'll have some fun posts in the next several months.

Nose has vintage Port at ~20Y, blackberry, blackcurrant, ripe blueberry, rehydrated raisin, coffee grounds and soil from a forest fire

Palate has orange zest in blackberry jam, dried cherry compote, wet baking spice, molasses cookie, medium tannins with intense finish, can hold easily another +10Y in proper storage. Amazing bottle.

Very fun! We had this bottle at Spiaggia in Chicago several years ago at the recommendation of the somm - nice to see it again.

Pagliarese

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

Dusty Firenze cellar, the nose is unmistakable.

Hazelnut dust, pomegranate, black cherry, all held together with sharp and enjoyable Buddha palm acidity, some cigar box tannins.
The grilled pizza did not turn out so well, luckily the wine has made up for it!

Giulio Larcher Trento DOC CLOU Pas Dosè Chardonnay Pinot Nero 2014

This was a huge surprise. Direct from Le Volpe e l’uva in Firenze, I was blown away by how good this was, especially given the price (~$30 I believe). Just terrific. — 2 months ago
