Zingari Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2015

8.9

Drank 11/30/19. Average pairing with Rigatoni bolognese.

An interesting blend of equal parts merlot, sangiovese, syrah, and petit verdot. Nose of red and black cherry, some tomato leaf, and sweet baking spices. Flavors of cherry liqueur, cranberry sauce, and a hint of earth. Finishes with red fruit and tar, with medium tannins and finish.

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2017

Mushroom, soy, birch bark, roast game bird, roasted plum. The substantial VA is balsamic, savory and perfectly integrated. Pure class, as is everything I’ve ever tasted from this underrated estate. — 4 days ago

@Chip Hughes sounds like it is even better than the 2016I posted on.

I find 2017 to be my kind of Chianti vintage, so you’ve got to discount my evaluation...unless 2017 is your idea of a great Chianti vintage too.

@Chip Hughes Can not answer your question as I have not had any ‘17’s.

Tempo Riserva Morellino di Scansano Sangiovese Blend 2012

Surprisingly excellent. This sangiovese appellation has different qualities compared to it's more famous northern counterparts, but can truly stand on it's own. — 19 days ago

Gran Selezione Effe 55 Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2013

Great wine. Gran selezione is always a bit underwhelming to me but this one holds its own. — 5 days ago

Badia a Passignano Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2005

A production that was under the name riserva but which received the designation gran selezion in 2009.

Color still purple almost no signs of aging. The nose is super open on blackcurrant, leather, balsamic vinegar. On the palate the acidity is moderately strong, the tannins still present and alcohol is average. Very nice balance. Blackcurrant notes on the palate, cherries, leather and lots of herbs (oregano, sage etc). Tannins a little drying. The final is medium but very pleasant.

In all I was afraid that the bottle is too old for a 2005 vintage in Chianti but far from it. The wine still has a lot of fruit and some secondary but not tertiary notes. Sangiovese is so beautiful a grape for the long hau if it's done well!

Blind tasted, couldn’t say if it was Chateauneuf or a mellow Montalcino or something else complex and satisfying — turns out it’s the latter — 3 days ago

Had much Ovid? I’ve bought the last couple of vintages. They seem like young drinkers too 🤷‍♂️

Fattoria Selvapiana

Vigneto Bucerchiale Riserva Chianti Rùfina Sangiovese 2015

Sublime Sangiovese. Quite a rich vintage, but not over-egged in the least. Dark fruit, tannic undergirding, lovely structure. Attenuated nose that will likely blossom after you sock it away for a few, if you can resist pulling the cork now. — 6 days ago

Seghesio Family Vineyards

Chianti Station Sangiovese 2012

Intense nose of cherry, fig, leather, and pipe tobacco. Hefty tannins, mouthfilling deep flavors of cherry plum. A little oak that is complimentary, which is to say very lightly done. This is terrific. So different than Tuscan Sangiovese in its power. More like a Zin. I love this. For some reason, Delectable has this showing up from Tuscany. It is from the Alexander Valley in California — 11 days ago
