Montepeloso

Eneo Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2010

Montepeloso Eneo 2010. Drunk over a couple of days. Noticed very little change. Dark as the night and the rim doesn’t show any sign of brickening. Powerful stuff. Lots of dark fruits, cherry, blackberry, plum, but also smoke, cedar, coffee and spices. In the mouth shows full body and medium plus tannins and in terms of flavors also some crushed stone and black pepper. I felt the acidity wasn’t totally supporting the wine as the finish was kinda “hot.” Perhaps too big of a wine for my palate but I have another bottle so I am curious to see how it will evolve. — 8 days ago

Venge Vineyards

Atlas Peak Sangiovese 2016

Obviously Kirk Venge makes some great cabs, but I think sangio and petite sirah perfectly suit his style. The zins are a tad too jammy for me now. I do miss the penny lane vineyard sangio version from oakville for its tannins, structure, and liveliness, but this atlas peak vineyard makes a wine that is pretty graceful, serious, and drinkable. — 4 days ago

@Ron R i havent had too much of the sauv blanc (only through tastings). It’s solid but I prefer the vermentino for more acid.

Agreed, Penny Lane was quite a bit better, zins too sweet.
The Julianas SB was good not to mention the spettro white blend, but bought it at $10.00 on auction so maybe I wouldn’t of enjoyed at Release price🤷🏼‍♂️

@Paul Treadway Huntington Beacher Bum they’re releasing a new bordeaux blend. See how that is. The missouri hopper cab was excellent

Cerbaiona

Toscana Sangiovese 2012

Very dark rubi robe. Very rich but balanced nose with black fruits and spices. Great length and this incredible blend of Rhone valley and right bank Bordeaux with that Sangiovese backbone. If you love Tuscan wines with structure its fantastic to drink now, otherwise give it a few years and you’re in for a treat. Highly recommended. — 10 days ago

Casanova di Neri

30 ° Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

Established in 1971 when Giovanni Neri acquired a large estate within Montalcino. One of my Wow Wines! Aged for almost 4 years on oak, 100% Sangiovese. Ruby with aromas of ripe dark fruits, oak and spice. Full-bodied wine with medium acidity, fine yet smooth tannins with elegance and finesse. The ripe fruit flavors of cherry and strawberry are complex yet not overdone. Some cacao, tobacco, toasty and earthiness appear on the long finish. Very nice. — 2 days ago

La Chimera d'Albegna

Chimera Riserva Maremma Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2011

This is a wine with a long finish. It is complex and heavy. Smooth tanins. It is not very fruitful but the caramel aftertaste really does the job. Needs decantation. This is another wine from Grosseto (Tuscany) worth the price. — 6 days ago

Agricola San Felice

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

Not quite the 94 point Wine Spectator rating but a pretty damn good wine for the $14.99 price. Classic Tuscan notes of sour cherries and plum skin, dried earth, tobacco and spice. Impeccably balanced with juicy acidity and well integrated tannins after decanting. Definitely got more secondary characteristics and complexity on the palette on night two as well. Will be picking up a few more of these. — 8 days ago
