Tuscany Sangiovese

Il Palazzone

Rosso del Palazzone Vino da Tavola Sangiovese

Made from at least two different vintages and vineyards in three different areas of Montalcino. Looked up the lot number and it notes that this wine was bottled in March 2016, made from 2011 and 2014 vintages, two years in which the estate opted not to produce Brunello. Based on the sourcing pedigree and the price point, this wine is a QPR winner! — 8 days ago

Castell'in Villa

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2011

Chianti Classico clinic for a bargain entry fee. Raspberry, plum, fennel, leather, licorice, gravel and balsamic herb. Lean, pure, bright and focused. Well-built medium-bodied beauty with all the hallmarks of the terroir. Ample weight with no extra fat. Linear, slow-building tannins and great fruit extraction. A real steal for the price and a textbook example of its type. — 5 days ago

This is go to Brunello and first wine in almost two weeks - been a crazy two weeks and glad it is behind me / also recuperating from my first round of golf in a long time

So just closed my eyes sort of to pick tonight and this baby is helping me with my back pain and get me ready for tomorrow’s golf

This is not as good as I remember but still delicious

Azienda Agricola il Borghetto

Bilaccio Sangiovese 2014

Pure Sangiovese, again in a medium-weight and elegant style with minimal extraction. The most primary of the three Borghetto wines, showing pure red fruit and hints of toast. Tons of spice character, great intensity and freshness. Slightly malic fruit quality of tart cherry, pomegranate, licorice, anise, tobacco leaf. Slightly green tannins, bitter fruit pit and basalm coming through. Palate dominated by spice and bitter red fruit. Quite austere but still my favorite of this range for its nerve, intensity and future potential. Really needs 3-5 years in bottle, but should reward patience when the fruit comes together. — 17 days ago

Dievole

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 1997

Grandfather picked this bottle out in the cave where the wines are aged back in 1999. Dried cherries, dried oregano, slight muskiness fill the nose. Get a lot of sour cherries that have been macerated in a very acidic balsamic vinegar, slow smoked meat, fresh ground espresso beans, maybe a little strawberry? Delicious, fun wine but definitely has seen better days. Have upped the score .3 since opening... really delightful now — 12 days ago

Banfi

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

Color of clear dark burgundy with orange and yellow tone in the volume and on the rim. Nose of green pepper, grass, dried strawberries, a bit overpowering alcohol, and just a tiny bit of mineral. Taste of subtle acidity, like balsamic vinegar, dried strawberries, spice, like anise, good tannins, green pepper, clean and quite tasty, some more berries, and a bit bittersweet. Aftertaste shows similar lightness and cleanliness, medium short. She is suitable for a hot summer. Price tag does affect my rating. — 9 days ago

Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga

Fontalloro Toscana Sangiovese 2006

So good with osso bucco and risotto, bringing out more of the savory elements like herbs, leather, peppery spices, and wild cherry fruit. In a very good place at 12 years... — 10 days ago

Il Conventino

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Sangiovese 2014

Sangiovese made in a mid weight style that, perhaps because of the cool 2014 vintage, retains plenty of freshness. Less fruit, more floral. A pretty wine. — 3 days ago
