Sangiovese

E. Fuligni (Cottimelli)

Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2001

This is why I fell in love with Italian wine. Fuligni wines always show their temperament , elegance and rustic qualities with age. The smoky nuances penetrate both the dark, concentrated cherry fruit and the “old” wood flavor in the wine, as well this charred earth tone. Yet the tannins are integrated and create an aristocratic and velvety gracefulness. Could well stand 10+ years. Garnet color with its first hints of brick. Absolutely top class — 7 days ago

Azienda Agraria Lisini

San Biagio Toscana Sangiovese 2014

Plums, pipe tobacco and earthy. Some gritty tannins cling to the roof of my mouth. Less so on night 2. For an inexpensive wine, great value. A very good wine at ant price. — 3 days ago

Renieri Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

Young and more modern style. Definitely more fruit forward style but after a hour it softened and opened up more. Give a few more years to come together better. — 3 days ago

Podere Il Carnasciale 'Ottantadue' Toscana Sangiovese 2015

Tasty stuff! This is a barrel sample of the soon-to-be-bottled 2017 vintage; their 3rd release of this very naked Sangiovese expression. Short maceration and ageing a year steel (+2 months in used Barriques prior to bottling). Aromatic, herbaceous and cherry scented with ditto flavours and juicy acidity; this has “drinkability” written all over it! — 5 days ago

Villa le Prata

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2006

Vanilla, moist earth, anis, and roses on the nose, a bit of dried plum, leather, and pencil lead on the palate. Grippy tannins and lush acidity, elegant, round and delicious overall! — 4 days ago

Ferrari-Carano

Sonoma County Dry Sangiovese Rosé 2017

Dark coral pink in color, excellent clarity. Tutti-frutti and strawberry notes in nose. Light cherry flavor (later, cranberry and strawberry flavors emerge), lemon finish with moderate fine-grained skin tannin astringency. Creamy lemon and mineral aftertaste. Refreshingly dry, as advertised. Not terribly complicated or complex but well-made. Not just for Double Bubble chewing gum fans — 14 days ago

Valdicava

Riserva Madonna del Piano Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2003

Very dark Brunello. Just breathtaking sour cherry and savory earth notes mixed with leather and liquorice. Still young. Big structure and dusty tannin. Super long finish and cannot resist another pour. Impressive. — 5 days ago

Altesino

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

Such a unique wine! Scents of perfume, bay leaf, sage and rose upon open. At first, the wine seems lame and all of the sudden it pops! Dark fruit, tar. Cinnamon on the finish — 2 days ago

Sounds awesome.

Marchesi de' Frescobaldi

Montesodi Toscana Sangiovese 2015

Aromas of dark plums, wet leaves, and pencil lead; with added smokey and deep flavors of tobacco, dark chocolate, and maybe a hint of potpourri! The tannins are beefy yet elegant and evolved, and with the bright acidity and high alcohol (14.5%) means this is a “big” Super Tuscan. — 12 days ago
