Sangiovese Blend

Marchesi Mazzei

Castello di Fonterutoli Gran Selezione Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2001

This -08 Mazzei is dark purple slightly oily; has a nose of decadent overripe dark fruit (plums, figs, mulberries), dusty ’sangiovesc’ diesel, pencil shavings, mineral and wood chips; dry on the palate with fine tannins and pleasant structure, same fruits as on the nose, and a medium-length finish. It is silkier than younger tuscans and has more earth and depth but perhaps lacking in elegans. Expected more. — 4 days ago

Fattoria Selvapiana

Riserva Chianti Rùfina Sangiovese Blend 2015

This benefitted from 90 min. of air, which helped it flesh out a bit. It’s a mice value Chianti - cleanly made, medium-bodied, and with good typicity. A good food companion to buy by the case. — 7 days ago

Riecine

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2009

Much lighter than I had expected. I would say this is at peak. More minerals than fruit coming through, but excellent with a steak thanks to a nice acidity. — 12 days ago

Collezione Privata

Chianti Classic Ultima Botte Riserva Numero 1 2010

Wonderful blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, and Canaiolo. Beautiful raspberry color. Spice to start with a jammy berry finish. Would be a great afternoon drink in the shade of a tree. #wsjwine — 15 days ago

Castell'in Villa

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2011

Chianti Classico clinic for a bargain entry fee. Raspberry, plum, fennel, leather, licorice, gravel and balsamic herb. Lean, pure, bright and focused. Well-built medium-bodied beauty with all the hallmarks of the terroir. Ample weight with no extra fat. Linear, slow-building tannins and great fruit extraction. A real steal for the price and a textbook example of its type. — 5 days ago

Il Conte Villa Prandone

Zipolo Marche Sangiovese Blend

Great rec by the sommelier at our local Italian spot! Chocolate and plums on the nose. Deep, dark fruit throughout the palate. Very thick and dense. Nice finish. Good structure and texture. — 10 days ago

This is go to Brunello and first wine in almost two weeks - been a crazy two weeks and glad it is behind me / also recuperating from my first round of golf in a long time

So just closed my eyes sort of to pick tonight and this baby is helping me with my back pain and get me ready for tomorrow’s golf

This is not as good as I remember but still delicious
