Wild red fruited Sangiovese with spiced cherry notes along with some earthy flavors balanced out by firm tannins. Soundtracked by the new record from Yves Jarvis. The album travels across genres, but still remains a cohesive statement. It’s funk one minute & folk the next. Outside the box thinkers tonight, made for each other. — 14 hours ago
Fathers Day is upon us and I wish all Fathers a wonderful weekend. Today I had opened the 2013 Gaja Sugarille Pieve Santa Restituta Brunello de Montalcino 100% Sangiovese.
The aromas are very prominent with notes of cherry, plum, blueberry, thyme, herbs, dried Rose's, broken brick chips, graphite and dried soil.
On the palate there is cherry, plum, red raspberry, spice, balsamic, thyme, leather and a nice earthy component.
This wine is a beautiful expression of a Tuscan Sangiovese medium to full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + firm, grippy, fine tannins that lead to a long spicy elegant finish. You fathers out there enjoy your weekend and keep safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 10 days ago
Dark ruby red. Nose is layered with cherries, spices, tobacco and lavender. On the palate wine is rich and ripe due to obviously warm vintage. However it carries nice refreshing acidity and firm if bit overpowering tannins indicating this has plenty of life ahead. Absolutely grest Carmignano in the making. If you pop now decant for 2 hours or wait for 2-3 years — 4 days ago
I don’t often drink Sangio-Bordelaise blends, but when I do...the Sangio has to drive the car, and there has to be structure, freshness and lift. All are in evidence here. Really one of the best of its type, and not expensive at all. — 3 days ago
The 2016 Long Shadows ‘Saggi’ is the best bottling of this storied wine that I have tried since they began producing this wine more than a decade ago. The ‘Saggi’ is a thrilling blend of Sangiovese (Boushey and Candy Mountain Vineyards) with 29% Cabernet Sauvignon (Weinbau Vineyard) and the remainder Syrah (Den Hoed Dutchman and Bacchus Vineyards). The nose is drop-dead gorgeous with bacon fat, black olive tapenade, mocha and fennel. The stunning range of aromas bring you back to the glass for more. Revealing a silky texture and a wonderfully ripe mouthfeel, the ‘Saggi’ slowly unveils smoked pork shoulder, black tea, milk chocolate covered cherry and roasted fig flavors. Decadent, layered and downright delicious, this beautiful wine will enjoy an exceedingly long life in the cellar. If enjoying in its youth be sure to give this a two hour decant.

Otro gran Toscano que acompañe con galletas y queso crema de champiñones, aunque iría muy bien con ese plato griego Musaka, que lleva berenjenas, carne molida y queso, sobre todo recalentado, una delicia, este vino joven bien equilibrado con más de tres variedades distintas: sangiovese, carbenet sauvignon y uvas nativas, color purpura intenso, notas a frutos negros, especies, pimienta negra, en boca redondo frutos negros y rojos especies vino suave bien logrado, saludos #winelovers #pisco #Peru #Lima — 12 days ago
