Perlato del Bosco Sangiovese 2015

Greg Ballington
9.2

Deep garnet red with a hint of ruby on the core. Lovely nose with a new world styled Italian Sangiovese coated with tangy spices, red berries, earthy and flowers. Medium tannins (6/10) and medium to medium plus bodied. Nice and dry on the palate with roses, dried cherries, leather, earthiness and some floral spices. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2028.

Fossacolle

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Maxwell Burns
9.6

When selling Rosso di Montalcino most of us compare it to Brunello as a value. Fossacolle makes a tremendous Brunello, but to try to compare the Brunello to the Rosso is a disservice to the quality of the Rosso. This wine is very fresh, bright, vibrant, and in no way leaves you wanting more ”stuffing”. — 12 days ago

Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2015

In the 17 published editions of Gambero Rosso, Italy’s acclaimed wine rating guide, this Tuscan estate has won the coveted Tre Bicchieri (Three Glasses) award 17 times. Ruby with complex berry and elegant spice aromas. On the palate rich ripe cherry and blackberry flavors with sweet spice, cedar, cacao and tobacco enhance the berry fruit. Graceful tannins, savory with good acidity balance, lingering ending with earthy mineral character. Nice! — 3 days ago

Carpineto

Riserva Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Sangiovese 2012

Maybe a slight overkill for simple pepp, mushroom and basil pizza, but dang, this is good stuff! Gorgeous perfumed nose of violets, with velvety rounded mouthfeel and soft finish. — 7 days ago

Tenute Silvio Nardi

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2006

This wine always has a special place in my heart, as my dad gifted a bottle of the ‘95 to us to share when our first child was born in ‘99. This ‘06 benefitted from 90 min. in the decanter. It was a good wine, if not a show stopper. Cleanly made and true to type. Drink or hold. — 12 days ago

Palazzina Le Macioche

Le Macioche Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2007

Savory aromas of plums, raisins, balsamic, pencil lead, and tomato leaf. The palate develops with a mouth watering acidity and velvety tannins. Further developing flavors include tobacco, leather, and wet soil. Enjoyed with a spicy penne pasta with local mushrooms. All in all a lovely wine! — 16 hours ago

Kirkland Signature

Signature Series Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

A very enjoyable Brunello. Light bodied and smooth. Fruity with earth notes and red berries.

Light to medium Bodied with medium plus acidity.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly.


Not my style, but I really enjoyed it.

14% alcohol by volume.

Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

9.3

One of the NYE bottles, contributed by my good buddy @Cody Cotten , who brought this back after his visit to Italy a month ago.

Dark ruby in color; awesome aromatics of charred rose petal, cherry tobacco, saddle leather and plum. Rich on the palate up front with blackberry, fig and dates but the mid palate and finish turn more underripe black cherry. Slight iron finish too. I’m really selective about the Italian wines I enjoy, and this was very good, and will likely be killer in 3-5yrs. Thanks Cody!
