100% Sangio. 100% incredibile! For a 28th anniversary dinner with my wonderful wife. Sight unseen (so to speak) I was impressed beyond words. Went to Coltibuono this summer but didn’t taste this; however they swore up and down that the Sangioveto had the goods. And it did in spades! So rich and savory. The depth of cherry fruit and silky tannin is off the charts. I only wish I had another bottle to age for 3-5 years and taste some heaven then. Molto buono!!! — 3 days ago
Oooooo-weee! There was so much love for this from everyone I shared it with at work. Espresso, chili flakes, smoke, cranberry sauce, rusty dustiness, red cherries, chocolate raisins.. the signature note is the smooth and forward acid. I personally think there's a splash of some beneficial VA to this (red wine vinegar). This is young but entering its peak. I think it can sit on it's peak for another 10 years too. Really mean this when I say one of the best brunellos I've had yet. Wild — 11 days ago
I was not at all a fan when this was first opened, as it had a strong funk on the nose and seemed austere on the palate. With 4-5 hrs of air, it blossomed into something quite nice. Medium bodied, red fruited, and accented by leather and subtle herb. Finishes dry and long. — 5 days ago
Vintage 2012 - Meeting my studyfriend Felix 34 years after graduation, that calls for a fine wine - pretty high acidity, beautiful red fruit, good balance, not too complex as we want to talk about our lives, but still interesting. We partnered it with Bavette. - At restaurant De Plantage in Amsterdam. — 4 days ago
RP's sticker again... 92 points. This time, I agree! This is a light brown-garnet transparent Brunello. 13.5% alc. Presents a nice vanilla/white chocolate front. But the tannins are way too firm. Maybe 1 hour wasn't enough. Still good plus.
