Poderi Sanguineto I e II

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Sangiovese 2011

This wine disappeared rather quickly tonight. 93 without batting an eye, maybe 94. This wine pours a translucent red / violet. Nose of mint and herbal cherry. Entry is MUCH more rounded than expected. Sweet cherry cola and acidity building in the mid palate. Finishes with some bing cherry sweetness, some herb, hint of tart, hint of oak tannin but not much. Good weight without being overpowering, and went with rigatoni pasta quite well. I think this one has another 5 years before it starts to head down the hill. Nice bottle. — 4 days ago

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

Closed on the nose, restricted in the mouth but revealing enough to show its potential. Quite fruit driven, a bit too much cassis for this type of wine. And still...a pleasure to drink. If you have any, stock it, there is a lot to come! — a day ago

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2016

Not a baby brunello. High altitude elegant Rosso. Sweet fruit. Cherry and licorice so well balanced. Really good. Bought from Fass Selections. — 4 days ago

Le Pergole Torte Sangiovese 2003

One of the most memorable expressions of Sangiovese I’ve ever had. Layers of tomato paste, fresh green tobacco leaf, and aged sweet balsamic vinegar. — 11 days ago

Sesti (Castello di Argiano)

Monteleccio Toscana IGT Sangiovese 2016

Top winery carried and imported by Kermit Lynch. This is their 3rd wine. Their Rosso is 40$. The Brunello 80$+. I bought this bottle for 20$. Then a case. This overdelivers! Might age a couple of years. Quite big and rich. Dusty tannins, Sangiovese fruit. Black cherries 🍒 what is not to like? — 6 days ago

Azienda Agraria Lisini

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2008

Nice starter wine for my birthday dinner/evening. Just a classic BdM all around. At first that funk that blew off after about an hour. Then earth, dark berry, leather. This righteous wine was a perfect complement to my wife’s bolognese and my Filetto Al Gorgonzola that was cooked to perfection at our fav little Italian spot, La Rustica. Lisini delivers yet again. — 7 days ago

A brilliant example that’s soaring right now.
Nose presents maraschino cherries. On the palate, the oak is regal and subtle. Deftly balanced with powdery tannins and bright acidity. All the components are integrated. Pure fruit with uncommon sweetness finish what is a polished example. Thank you, Mo for opening this gem.

Night 1 of the Fall WNH event in San Antonio. What a killer start to the extended weekend, all courtesy to Shawn and Jennifer for hosting! Tonight was Italian wines.

Underripe heirloom tomato, charred raspberries and birch wood on the nose. Tastes so young on the palate...great acidity. It finishes with a spicy red fruit/black peppercorn note. Great bottle from

Tenuta Caparzo

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

The name of the estate comes from "Ca' Pazzo", shown on ancient maps. The estate covers an area of 190 hectares, 54 which are vineyards, 4 are olive groves, 87 which are wooded and 45 are to be planted with new vines. Vivid deep Ruby with a berry fruit bouquet and hints of smoke, aged for 2 years on oak. On the palate cherry & strawberry flavors, with leather, cacao and tar notes. Softening nicely, has lively acidity and approachable tannins, lingering ending with tobacco oak finish. Tasting Sample. — 15 days ago
