Piccinini

Chianti 2010

9.0

A nice Chianti to pair with our build your own pizza night.

I pulled this out of one of my EuroCaves but, canโ€™t for the life of me remember how it came to be in my possession. ๐Ÿค”

From a good vintage that showed nice, ripe sweet & sour dark cherries, some darker berries, a fair amount of baking spices; cinnamon, vanilla, clove and a touch of nutmeg, dark spice, gravely crushed minerals, red & dark fresh florals, nice, round acidity with a good finish but lacked complexity throughout.

Tenuta Greppo (Biondi-Santi)

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

Have not had Brunello from Biondi-Santi before and an amazing dinner at Vini e Vecchi Sapori in Florence was a perfect occasion (esp for $70 under US retail). Definitely could use more time, but accessible now with a bit of air and the right pairing. Dark red fruit on the nose, quite tannic but integrated, and an excellent finish with great acid. โ€” 6 days ago

Il Paradiso di Frassina

Frassina Rosso Sangiovese Blend 2015

This is a real sleeper. Sneaky concentration and complexity on the back with very rustic tobacco ash, mineral and woodsmoke character. Even a hint of black fruit showing up on the finish. Really fine effort. โ€” 8 days ago

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2006

Still fantastic. Almost 13yo and going strong. Juicy cherry fruit with snappy acidity. Amazing QPR. 24th of 25 bottles. โ€” 2 days ago

Il Paradiso di Frassina

Moz Art Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

This is simply fantastic. In the early going it displays laser-like focus and precision with impeccably clean contours and silky, creamy elegance on the palate. Not an ounce of fat on this wine. Tart cherry and raspberry flavors play wonderfully with subtle spice, tobacco, mint and orange rind character. Truly fine Brunello such as this is nearly impossible to put down despite the young tannin. This is going to be a stunning wine with more bottle development which I cannot wait to revisit. โ€” 8 days ago

Castellare di Castellina

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2016

Fairly simple Chianti. Black cherry, ripe plum, spice and tobacco. Fairly dark color and soft flesh on the mid palate with very medium tannins. Perhaps a bit of Merlot in the blend? โ€” 12 days ago

9.5

We pulled the pin on a green banana, but its pedigree shines thru. Decanted in the hope that our felony crime would be forgiven, however, this wine showed little mercy.
The nose was a giveaway with espresso: drum tight, and so unforgiving. Underripe tannins, with subtle fruits and pronounced herbs dominate the mid-palate. Young and boisterous, this is crying out for bottle age. Thanks
@Mo Salem for the share.
