Tuscany Sangiovese

Montevertine

Le Pergole Torte Sangiovese 2014

Not as open knit as some of the commentary on this vintage would have you believe. Fairly tightly wound and austere at this stage, cool blue fruit tones with some barrel notes, built more like a classic brunello than the ethereal grace I was expecting. Not going to crack another for at least 5-8 years — 2 days ago

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2016

No where near the 97 points given by WS. Still a very nice chianti but i preferred the 2015. This one had a bit too much tartaric acid to my liking. — 5 days ago

Wow. Deep nose of mis season cherry, leather, cherry flower, smells like a Brunello. Wow. Serious aromas. Palate is ripe and juicy, wonderful texture and juiciness. Ripe and rich but so mineral and earthy as well. Lovely freshness and just great fruit. — 4 days ago

Argiano

Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2014

Dark sour cherry and strawberry aromas and flavors. Hints of tobacco and leather. Brimming with acidity and the tannins are very smooth. A bit light bodied and short on the finish. Good wine but I was expecting more. — 11 days ago

Killer. Classic old school Sangiovese nose. Elegant mid season cherry and so lifting. Spice and Cherry flower. Earthy and leathery. Palate is juicy and so elegant with amazing depth and structure. So juicy and really nimble wine. Terrific inner mouth aromas. Deep, energetic and persistent. Vivid mid season cherries all the way through. Terrific balance. A baby now but has 15 years ahead of it. — 11 days ago

Riserva 14 Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2010

Pretty full on. Lots of leather and stewed dark fruit. Didn't end up finishing the bottle. Initially delicious but a little much after a couple of glasses. — 25 days ago
