Sangiovese Blend

Castelli del Grevepesa (Castelgreve)

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2013

A blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Merlot, aged for 2 years in large oak barrels, medium Ruby with dark fruit aromas and enticing herb spices. On the palate berry and cherry flavors, smoky oak with pepper and floral spice. Well integrated soft tannins, long finish ending with mineral tones. Very nice! Good value! — 8 days ago

Zingari Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2015

Great Value Super Tuscan! Blend of (equal parts) Sangiovese, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Aromas and flavors of cherries and chocolate. Hint of sour lemon pith. Full bodied with just a touch of tannin. Lush and juicy but soft and polished at the same time. Outstanding! — 19 days ago

I Sodi di San Niccolò Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2016

Toscana wine evening #6
Bright cherry, herbs, uplifting aromatic whiff, enticing. Medium body yet with good depth & purity of fruit. Still young & a bit reductive yet with Promise of more to come. Beautiful tannin management. Great drinkability.
This is really, really good stuff.

Castello di Monsanto

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2017

Toscana wine evening #2
Typical Chianti Classico with bright black cherry and tomato leaf. A touch of savoury leather / herby side, too. Light & elegant on the palate with bright acidity balancing the fruit.
I prefer the Chiantis from the western hills vs the rest - not as burly & long lived, but so fresh & elegant.

Fattoria dei Barbi (Colombini)

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2011

Takes its name from the free-spirited gentleman named Bruscone who lived in the woods of the Barbi Estate. Deep Ruby with aromas of berry fruits and sweet herb notes. On the palate ripe cherry, plum and dried fruits with tobacco and cola notes, well balanced on firm tannins still with a good grip that loosens quickly. Long finish ending with mineral and earthy notes. Good now but will still benefit from a few more years. Went great with hearty pasta dish! — 5 days ago

Modus is top drawer, mate. It's a great value quaff. Those in the know are aware that this is a hidden gem. WS rated this 91pts in 2009. So, as usual, time is its friend.
