Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2016

Florality of dark raspberry and flavors of tart cherry with a tad of wild strawberry. Balanced acidity and minerality. — a day ago

Rocca di Montegrossi

Vigneto Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2009

The 2009 Rocca di Montegrossi San Marcellino is showing significantly more depth, yet also freshness than the last time I tasted it, with balsamic tinged black cherry, giving way to Asian spice, wild herbs, hints of animal musk and brown sauce (think sauerbraten).  Velvety textures flood the palate, showing notable savoriness, as mineral-infused dark red fruits are energized by vibrant acidity with a hint of orange citrus that pops right toward the close. The finish is long, showing adolescent tannins, which provide just enough tension, as it tapers off to notes of roasted plum, hints of tobacco and sage.  It does show a bit more advanced than I’d expect, but this is a far superior bottle over the last one I tasted.  Bravo. #chianticlassic #chianti #tuscanwine #italy — 18 days ago

Interesting aromatics--black licorice infused cherry. Super tart and dry as expected given it's youth. Would love to fast forward this a decade.

Spring 2020. This had a brown spice bouquet and transparent but rounded palate. Very distinctive from Nebbiolo from the Langhe. — 11 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Looked like a good deal on WTSO so bought a few bottles. Opened one today. Garnet red color, dark cherry and leathery nose, very tight on opening with intense leathery tannins, at 90 minutes more balanced with emerging dark cherry as the tannins reduced, seemed to be much more balanced at 3 hours with soft earthiness/minerals emerging as tannins softened and lingered. May cellar the rest a bit but very happy with the quality/value. — 20 hours ago

Ronchi Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2016

Love this! No decant (imho it doesn’t need it). This is everything you want. Balanced fruit and acid. Served with bbq ribeye (the rub with brown sugar and ground coffee is what brought these together). Second night sautéed chicken with rosemary and a pesto pasta was also perfect. Love this!

Rocca delle Macìe

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

“Before decanting- or even much of a breathe- the ‘15 Rocca Delle Macie, Chianti Classico Riserva floats right off the glass as if it knew it’d be opened soon. seriously - this is one of the more lush and powerfully expressive Chianti’s I’ve experienced. While blackberries and hints of cherry find their way to the nose- there’s something else there that, even after thirty minutes studying my little book of aromas- I cannot pinpoint! It’s an earthy-yet youthful, “sandstone-y” type of aroma. Which I’m sure doesn’t exist but, whatever- that’s what I got. And very, very much am digging. There is a notable roundness to this wine- both in the nose as well as on the palate. The finish is long and kind of “unwinding” other flavors I missed along the journey of the swig. For its price in particular, I would even invite staunch fans of Brunello Di Montalcino to have a go at this beautifully-expressive & precocious Chianti Classico Riserva from Rocca delle Macie. #PublicofRidgewood, #PublicofPrinceton, #chianti — a month ago
