Beautiful Sangiovese (with som Merlot). Elegant and refined, very pure and in a sense “naked”. Way less extravagant and extracted than previous vintages. I like it a lot! Tuscany needs more versions like this. — 19 hours ago

Castellare di Castellina

Vigna Il Poggiale Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2010

My second one of these. This is now in its drinking window, but remains a darker, bigger boned Chianti than I tend to gravitate towards. Best with a meat dish. — 10 days ago

Fontalloro Toscana Sangiovese 2010

Checking in on this bottle tonight, it's been a little over three years (37 mo) since our last taste. It will be paired with a beautiful Bolognese sauce which has been gently cooking for most of the day. I'm not sure which I'm more excited for tonight. 🍷🍝

Color is intense purple, with red-brown edges, almost too dark to see through.

Nose has plum/fig jam, under-ripe cherry, aroma of recently picked strawberry, muddy Earth and light toasted barrel.

Palate is full of dark fruits, plum, black cherry, blackberry, prune, hint of mocha and faint red pepper. Tannins are softening but still present, not obtruse. We're saving most of this for tomorrow, not sure it'll be much more accessible this evening, notes will be updated.

24hr Update: Earthy plum and black cherry make a bold show on the nose. Palate is still consistent with earlier notes, but the red pepper note has faded fully away. Great bottle, likely not to make it another day.

Agreed, Rancia is wonderful too, but I think they make the best Vin Santo!

@Severn Goodwin absolutely. Their 2001 is probably the best bottle of Vin Santo I’ve ever tasted.

@Michael Meyer We have '04, and that's amazing, can only fathom the '01.

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

9.3

Racy yet ripe with beautiful tannins adding serious grip to its cherry dominated profile where acidity, Galestro earthiness and dried herbs add complexity to this classically style Brunello. Built like a cross of Barolo from Brunate and Premier Cru Nuits Saint Georges. — 3 days ago

Marchesi Mazzei

Fonterutoli Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2013

Color of purple, ruby and brown coffee on the rim. Nose of flowering, oak, subtle dark fruit, but quite dull. Taste of nice oak, raisin, fresh juicy grapes, low tannins, tobacco leaves, a bit of zest, peppery, and a bit of black tea. Aftertaste of some spice and refined, medium long. Her taste surpasses the nose. She is at her peak and enjoy. — 19 hours ago

Riserva Chianti Sangiovese 2006

Сливовая шкурка, переспелая черешня, черника, ментол, кожа, сухой табак, трухлявая кора, земля. Средне-полное тело с напряженной кислотностью и немного сушащими танинами. Спело и ярко, с мускулистой концентрацией и спрятанной в глубине ягодной чистотой. Развито и зрело, но ещё совсем не перевалило пик. Типично, чисто и интенсивно, немного экстрактивно и жарко. — 4 days ago
