Montevertine

Le Pergole Torte Sangiovese 2014

My first try of this wine was the 2015 vintage & I loved it but I’ve not found many 2014 from Italy that I’ve liked as many are weak, so @ £127 I was torn on hold or try & yes I’m so weak to 🤣 I prefer this to the Sassicaia 14 but still I’d pay for the 2015 at this price as it feels expensive for what it is or could be 😉 But hey I love their labels 😍

📍 Montevertine Le Pergole Torte 2014

🏵 93 points w/ maybe a little improvement but not as complex as the 2015 which I gave 97-98 points @ £135 - I know which I’d buy as a long term treat 😉

🍷 Clear rich ruby

👃 Soft oak & minty fresh cedar tones through dark cherry & sweet plum w/ blackberry, earth, rock minerals, red potpourri & spiced herby hints

Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga

Fontalloro Toscana Sangiovese 2013

Upgrade to 9.2 after one year. Gigantic evolution between uncorking and pouring the last drop (+/- 5 hours). Everything is getting clear. So probably in one year just perfect. And guess what: as always it will be my last bottle...🤦‍♂️ — 7 days ago

Casanova di Neri

Tenuta Nuova Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2006

Love this producer and this wine but this wine was a little perplexing. Not much on the nose and the color is just starting to turn from the deep purple but it never came around. 2-3 hours decanted and the acidity was on volume 11. Good red fruit and tobacco with a short finish. — 14 days ago

9.3

Simply awesome. Cool climate Sangiovese is where it is at and this is a superb example. It’s such a clean and precise wine. Mid season cherries, sour cherries, glorious cherry flower and spices. Nice soil tones as well. Mineral undertones as well. Licorice. Stunning aromas. After air it’s just an insane perfume. The palate is terrific. Juicy, pure and very linear, with wonderful sweet/sour cherry fruit, a hit of mid palate opulence and wonderful velvety, perfectly ripe tannins. Terrific freshness. Has the guts and structure for at least 10-12 years of aging and improving. Wonderful stuff. — 10 days ago

Renieri Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

Big day of wine! Grand Reserve tasting at Total followed by steak night.

Third wine from Total wine tasting. Needs a little more time in the bottle, but beautiful representation of Brunello. Underripe bing cherries and white rose petals.

Marchesi Antinori

Pian delle Vigne Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

From a restaurant list in Positano. Deep reddish purple color. Nice nose. Notes of black fruit, raspberries, some wood, and a little menthol. Nice texture in the mouth. Not over the top nor tannic. Nice enough to order a second bottle of it. — 11 hours ago

Percarlo Toscana Sangiovese 2008

Drank the 97 twice this past year, thought having a baby would be fun to compare. Bottom line is this wine needs an abundant amount of time. Despite the tannins being crunchy, other elements are in place. Give it another 15 years. — 5 days ago

All the elements you looks for on the nose, yet on the palate it comes across watery and linear. — 5 days ago
