Cepparello Toscana Sangiovese 2012

Not quite as impressive as I thought it would be. A very good pure breed Sangiovese from Tuscany. Super indeed. Mustiness complemented the otherwise balanced structure. Some early smoke and cherry, but not much mid palate. No real complexity. Liked it, but way too.much $$$ for this experience.

So as a caveat, this is a rare happening when I don't align with
@Antonio Galloni . Maybe I didn't let this open long enough (1 hour). Clearly, there is something wrong with me tonight.

Solid super Tuscan. 80-20 Sangiovese/Cab blend. This wine makes a damn good case for blending Sangiovese. #AcquaAl2 — 11 days ago

Pietradonice Sant' Antimo Cabernet Sauvignon-Sangiovese Blend 2005

Expensive! Not sure it was worth the wine list price at Zaffareno. Was nice but lacked depth. Excellent structure and fruit, but seemed like something was missing. Maybe still too young? — a day ago

Luce della Vite Toscana Sangiovese Merlot 2016

Slight herb taste, one hour later, complex aroma is coming out. Concentrated. Smooth. Mild. Black currant. Still lots of tanning due to new vintage. But we can enjoy even now. Elegancy. 2016 @350/G(4500), T Enoteca, 191214 — 2 days ago

Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona

Toscana Rosso Sangiovese Blend

Really loves a decant. Very dry so loves oily food; has the black cherry, medium frame, not too complicated Montalcino thing going on. Still, has some depth, & a second bottle awaits. Skurnik importer — 14 days ago

Zingari Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2015

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.

Toscana Merlot 2016

Wow, har aldrig doftar eller smakat på något som påminner om det här vinet. Har en typ av mjölkig doft som är wierd men samtidigt lite förtrollande. Otroligt mjuk och fluffig. Söta röda körsbär, torkade plommon, choklad. Sexig! Som pryd blir jag lätt generad av detta vin. — 2 days ago

Still awesome today. Deep with cinnamon and spice. The fruit is getting a touch plummy but there is still some youth here. Great wine — 2 days ago

So rich and complex. Amazing wine. Dark fruit, sangio acid, wild herbs, animale, Smokey, meaty, chocolaty. Will buy more immediately. Great value as well. Not far from the Canalicchio Di Sopra for a much better price. — 3 days ago
