Tuscany Sangiovese Blend

Cerbaiona

Toscana Sangiovese 2012

Very dark rubi robe. Very rich but balanced nose with black fruits and spices. Great length and this incredible blend of Rhone valley and right bank Bordeaux with that Sangiovese backbone. If you love Tuscan wines with structure its fantastic to drink now, otherwise give it a few years and you’re in for a treat. Highly recommended. — 14 days ago

Montepeloso

Eneo Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2010

Montepeloso Eneo 2010. Drunk over a couple of days. Noticed very little change. Dark as the night and the rim doesn’t show any sign of brickening. Powerful stuff. Lots of dark fruits, cherry, blackberry, plum, but also smoke, cedar, coffee and spices. In the mouth shows full body and medium plus tannins and in terms of flavors also some crushed stone and black pepper. I felt the acidity wasn’t totally supporting the wine as the finish was kinda “hot.” Perhaps too big of a wine for my palate but I have another bottle so I am curious to see how it will evolve. — 12 days ago

Azienda Agricola Montesecondo

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

What a wine should be, an enhancement to your meal. On its own except for the beautifully floral nose one might describe this as being thin maybe even rough and dismiss this wine. When paired with brisket in a mushroom sauce you understand what makes wine such a wonderful accompaniment to the dining experience . — 4 days ago

Casanova di Neri

30 ° Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

Established in 1971 when Giovanni Neri acquired a large estate within Montalcino. One of my Wow Wines! Aged for almost 4 years on oak, 100% Sangiovese. Ruby with aromas of ripe dark fruits, oak and spice. Full-bodied wine with medium acidity, fine yet smooth tannins with elegance and finesse. The ripe fruit flavors of cherry and strawberry are complex yet not overdone. Some cacao, tobacco, toasty and earthiness appear on the long finish. Very nice. — 6 days ago

Palazzina Le Macioche

Le Macioche Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2010

Lovely medium-bodied wine, just beginning to open up to show cedar, lavender, violet, cherry and leather. Quite elegant and actually drinks lighter than it's 14.5% ABV would indicate. Silky texture, long finish - great finesse — 5 days ago

Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona

Pianrosso Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 1997

Perfect timing ... Milk chocolate rolls off this baby. Nose and palate. I don't think this wine could be any more ready. Some light spearmint, but mainly super creamy, butterscotch, God I love this winery. Still a ton of tannin.

Fattoria dei Barbi (Colombini)

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

Really tight at pop and pour—had nice potential but could tell it was “closed”. Then decanted. Started to open up after 15 minutes but was singing “delicious” at 45 minutes. Also, as with all good Italian red, was better w food. Really popped with lightly spicy tomato sauce. Definitely tart cherries, some bright red raspberries, white pepper, and some lightly cedar-y tannin. Really nice. Wish I had had the time to really let it open before starting to drink it, but it was great nonetheless. — 12 days ago
