Nose has dried blackberry, ripe blackberry, dried black currant, old leather, roses, dry potting soil and cut strawberry.
Palate has ripe blackberry, black cherry, cigar, dried cherry, dark chocolate powder with a long finish. Fine tannins still make themselves known, noting the potential of longevity. Exceptional.
Our last bottle on this vintage, it had been a good run, but quite likely this bottle will continue to evolve thru 2024+. 100% Sangiovese.
Pulled the cork, 6h of breathing, then 90m of decant before dinner. Paired to a slowly cooked Bolognese sauce, as expected they worked well. It was a cool and breezy day today, highs in the low 60's (F). The end of May is going out like early May came in, chilly. We got back into the 40's last night, but at least no snow like the first weekend! — 7 days ago
Impressive rendition of this varietal but not for faint of heart: this is an austere lean angular beast w/razor sharp acidity and plenty of minerality & saline mingled w/herbaceousness. Echoes of kumquat & lime in 2nd day, but this remains a wine for seafood, salad or specific light fare. — 9 days ago
93+pts. I love this producer. Especially the Rancia Chianti. This Super Tuscan may be one of the best values coming out of Italy. The nose exudes Italy. The palate is Tuscan sun burnt raspberries with the earthy ness that’s traditional to Sangiovese. Still a little tight, but so damn good. — 2 days ago
Warm day, cool wines, just delicious, prior notes apply:
Nose has freshly sliced clementine, crushed blackberry and wet minerals.
Palate is fresh and lively, citrus, red fruits with light green herbal notes and powdered sugar on the medium finish. 100% Sangiovese. — 3 days ago
Fresh red cherry, red berries with an undertone of réglisse. Silky tannin, great depth which requires a good hour to open. Once opened amazing nose that takes you to another place, a place you feel high! Must be the alcohol. Great 2015 vintage for this super Tuscan. Cheers — 11 days ago
Me encanta este vino, había probado uno del 2016, aproveche y compre este del 2017, no tiene pierde vino fresco, frutado, la madera casi no se percibe, de color guinda profundo, en nariz: frutado, cerezas, café, vainilla, en boca: ligero, fresco, suave, frutado, redondo. De rancho nos invitaron un guiso de carne y arroz a la jardinera, ensalada de tomate, palta y lechuga, ¡delicioso! Calidad precio muy buena, temperatura 15° -16° C ¡Un abrazo! — 10 days ago
