Tuscany Sangiovese Blend

Castello di Ama

Purple Rose 2018

Delectable Wine
9.0

Ama’s 2018 Purple Rose is a saignée of Sangiovese fermented partly in a combination of steel and oak (30%). Rich and textured, with lovely depth, the 2018 is silky, perfumed and light on its feet. It has more than enough complexity and depth to drink well with a wide range of foods. $22.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, July 2019) — 5 hours ago

Poggio alle Mura Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2009

Most definitely in a great place window-wise. Bright lush sour cherry. Fairly oaky but not overly done. Beautifully acidic and more primary than I would have expected at 10 years. Finish and body were medium...probably an artifact of vintage. — 2 days ago

E. Fuligni (Cottimelli)

Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 1997

Opaque, dark tawny. Tight nose at first but opens with air. Notes of black cherry, earth, a little coffee and some floral. Nicely balanced in the mouth. Not super exciting but shows qualities of a well made wine. — 5 days ago

Caiarossa

Pergolaia Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2006

Pleasantly surprised by this little gem. As a super Tuscan lover was drawn to this by the age statement from this little restaurant. Not a big nose, but medium bodied with nice acidity. Black raspberries and currants on the pallet with some Smokeyness. Lovely wine — 8 days ago

Castagnoli

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2015

Not to be confused with Rocca di Castagnoli. This is “cool-climate” Sangiovese if you will. Medium bodied with an amplification of secondary flavors like smoke and leather. Cheap enough that you’ll want to throw some in your wild boar ragu and drink the rest while you cook. Cin cin! — a day ago

Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

Color of grayish purple, quite clear with a bit orange note. Nose is balanced fragrance with dried strawberry, spice, tobacco leaves, cured meat, and more sweet berries. Taste is light, and follows the nose, right amount of acidity and tannins, zest, just a bit sweetness shows her subtlety, more cured meaty note dancing with the berry note. Aftertaste shows backbone of tannins, medium long with savory spice, acidity and sweetness. Pretty good. — 8 days ago

Tenuta Il Poggione

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2004

Bright tart cherry on the nose, fresh with gnarly herbs and tobacco underneath. On the palate fresh, with clear, almost tangy fruit. Vivid, tasty and bright, but not particularly profound. — 2 days ago
