Zingari Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2015

8.9

Drank 11/30/19. Average pairing with Rigatoni bolognese.

An interesting blend of equal parts merlot, sangiovese, syrah, and petit verdot. Nose of red and black cherry, some tomato leaf, and sweet baking spices. Flavors of cherry liqueur, cranberry sauce, and a hint of earth. Finishes with red fruit and tar, with medium tannins and finish.

Chianti Station Sangiovese 2012

Intense nose of cherry, fig, leather, and pipe tobacco. Hefty tannins, mouthfilling deep flavors of cherry plum. A little oak that is complimentary, which is to say very lightly done. This is terrific. So different than Tuscan Sangiovese in its power. More like a Zin. I love this. For some reason, Delectable has this showing up from Tuscany. It is from the Alexander Valley in California — 6 days ago

Vigneto Bucerchiale Riserva Chianti Rùfina Sangiovese 2015

Sublime Sangiovese. Quite a rich vintage, but not over-egged in the least. Dark fruit, tannic undergirding, lovely structure. Attenuated nose that will likely blossom after you sock it away for a few, if you can resist pulling the cork now. — a day ago

Armilla

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

Friday night and starting the weekend off with the 2013 Armilla Brunello di Montalcino. Still a very young wine with a lot of years ahead of it. A small batch wine of 700 cases from Siena, Tuscany.

The was a little shy in revealing itself but after some time in the glass it finally came through with cherry, strawberry, raspberry, licorice, spice, clay pot, dried roses, light oak and dry earth.

On the palate there is tart cherry, tart strawberry, red plum, red currant, mint, pepper, and earth.

This wine is medium to full bodied with medium + mouth coating sandy tannins and high acidity that takes you into a long tart fruit finish. Looks like a very nice weekend ahead, let's be safe and have a great time. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Tenuta di Sesta

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2009

Brought from a guest to the house to accompany a dinner last week. My first time trying this producer. It was actually a pretty interesting wine. Definitely made in a more traditional style. Bright cherries and dried herbs. Definitely some Brett but only enough to make it charming. A rustic BdM. — 9 days ago

Super Tuscan blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. A dry, pencil shaving smelling nose. Full bodied with a good grippy tannin structure. Dark fruit, mocha, vanilla. I would cellar this some more. 94RP and 95JS. — 15 days ago

Cepparello Toscana Sangiovese 2015

9.4

This Sangiovese was complex yet explosive and compact - did not like it at first as needed air but got better and opened up as it still a baby - rest them for five years and drink over the next 40 years - not a fruit bomb like I thought but a dancer of tastes and smells - WE gave it 96 and I can see why — 7 days ago

Fattoria del Pino

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

Ridiculous. Intense nose of the richest macerated cherry, warm gravel, and bit of baking spice/incense. Intensely flavored and full, but with nice acid balance and still quite a bit of soft tannin. Great concentration and a lengthy finish that you don’t want to end. Exceptional. — 7 days ago

Tempo Riserva Morellino di Scansano Sangiovese Blend 2012

Surprisingly excellent. This sangiovese appellation has different qualities compared to it's more famous northern counterparts, but can truly stand on it's own. — 14 days ago
