La Magia

Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

9.4

Nose just comes out of the gates like a screaming mimi. Gorgeous cherry. Soupy and super clean. Floral. Cherry flower. Stunning florals. Irises and lilacs. Just a beautiful nose. Full Brunello Symphony. Spices galore. Palate is stunningly deeply fruited. Sappy and pure. So clean. Deep black and late season red cherries but so fresh. Superbly elegant and very concentrated with powerful and powdery tannins. Substantial structure and freshness. So pure. Velvety and energetic. — 5 days ago

Tenuta Sassoregale

Maremma Toscana Sangiovese 2017

Straightforward Sangiovese. Easy red hue, tart cherries, light on the mouthfeel with maximum acidity and firm tannings. The perfect pairing for red sauce pizza. — 6 days ago

Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2017

Pizza wine! No formal notes but I drank this alongside the Mocali RdM and I found this to be more to my preference. The Ciacci Piccolomini has a touch more polish and class; with a bit more depth while still being very true to place. Don’t get me wrong, the Mocali was good, this was just a touch better in my opinion. — 9 days ago

Bibbiano

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2016

Not bad but not compelling. Plum and black cherry, warm black tea, a touch of black licorice candy, underlying earth. A little sweet, but dry, with fine velvety black tea tannins. Light in body from good acid but heavier impact due to high alcohol, which kind of mutes all secondary flavors. — 7 days ago

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

Really nice but definitely needs a good decant. At this stage probably think this is 2-3 years away at least, unlike the 2011 which is more ready now. Beautiful textbook color. Lots of great dark cherry with good earth. Tannins are slightly unintegrated at this time but the acid is pure and keeps this together and refreshing. Great wine with some grilled Greek style lamb. — 5 days ago

Rocca di Montegrossi

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2016

The nose is dark and rich, showing sweet herbs, crushed black cherry, lavender and violets with hints of floral undergrowth. On the palate, soft textures give way to a mix of red and blue fruits, hints of spice and savory herbs, all made vibrant through brisk acidity. The finish is medium in length, with a buzz of lingering acids mixed with fine tannin, as tart red fruits and spices slowly fade from the senses. This is so easy to like already, yet sure to improve with mid-term cellaring. — 9 days ago

Tenute Silvio Nardi

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

Lovely ethereal Brunello: tobacco, cherry preserves, cola, violets, smooth tannins... delicious. Can you wait? Yes, but the 2013s will appeal to fruit lovers within the next few years. — 2 days ago

San Giusto a Rentennano

Percarlo Toscana Sangiovese 2015

Wow...this is sangiovese to another level. Unmistakably Italian but the quality of the fruit here is uncompromising. Needs a few years to open up pretty sure the score will be higher here. — 2 days ago

Marchesi Antinori

Pian delle Vigne Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

This is why we fell in love with Brunello wines some 20 years ago. Red fruit, chocolate and a bit of tar in the nose. Super smooth and delicate in the mouth. A touch of acidity but all to serve the greater good. — 2 days ago

Villa Patrizia

Istrico Montecucco Sangiovese 2015

Delectable Wine
9.1

Villa Patrizia’s 2015 Istrico Montecucco Sangiovese offers up a mix of dusty cherry and plum with balsamic spice, cedar and wild herbs. Velvety yet fresh and poised, with a fruit staining finish and resonating tannin, the 2015 is a beauty today and has plenty of mid-term potential. $23.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, May 2020) — 9 days ago
