Tuscany, Italy

Tenuta Caparzo

Toscana Sangiovese 2015

Gotta quote the Beatles on this one, “strawberry fields forever!” I don’t know how there is this much wine here for $12.00. Not shy whatsoever on the nose, palate, and finish. Smart integration of oak; it accentuates the fruit by adding nuances of clove, clay pot, and leather. So pretty as well. Potpourri and a pepper medley kick up the florals. Classic juicy tomato on the finish, but those creamy strawberry notes don’t seem to give up. Bravo 👏 — 7 days ago

Fontodi

Flaccianello della Pieve Colli Toscana Centrale Sangiovese 2004

Aged nose of sour cherry-drenched stems, dusty red fruit. This has cellared beautifully, Margaux-like but for the unmistakable dark red cherry and leather, lifted and layered, intense but restrained. Pure. Really needed 45 mins to sort out in decanter. Sublime, peaking but will sustain for a while. — 6 days ago

Ca'Marcanda Promis Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2015

Powerful & dark. Has plenty of cocoa & tobacco accenting the fruit. Aromatics add elegance to temper the power. Structured, but quite approachable. I — 4 days ago

Outstanding. After a trip to Bolgheri I find the more interesting wines from the region are vermentino. — 6 days ago

Castello di Ama

Purple Rose 2017

Delectable Wine
9.0

Castello di Ama’s Purple Rose is gorgeous. Ample and radiant on the palate, with lovely silkiness, the 2017 Purple Rose is a serious wine endowed with tons of textural depth. Blood orange, star anise, crushed rose petals and mint add an attractive hint of exoticism. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, July 2018) — 9 days ago

Piazza del Castello

Rosso Toscana IGT 2016

60% Sangiovese, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon & 10% Merlot. A little earthy at first. Slight tastes of blackberry and plum but really lacks flavor. Maybe it will be better after decanting. — 3 days ago

Elegant label. Sounds lush. Decant can help a lot. Cheers! 🍷

Antinori est toujours un plaisir à ouvrir ! Aujourd'hui, le Pian delle Vigne avec une robe rouge cerise composé d'éclats cuivrés.
