Collecapretta (Vittorio Mattioli)

Le Cese Umbria Sangiovese 2013

Great wine from a great producer. Structured, savory, red fruit. And not weighty. Nice to drink. — 7 days ago

Paolo Bea

Rosso de Véo Umbria Rosso Sagrantino 2012

Big dose of VA on the nose. Full body, extracted, ripe fruit and aggressive tannins, with a lactic saltine cracker finish. Missing the expressiveness of some of the other Bea bottles I’ve tried.

I’ve heard there can be substantial bottle variation so will give this another try in a few years and hope the bottle was atypical of the bottling/vintage.

Cantina Conestabile Magione Case Parse Umbria Rosso 2018

Wonderful and unique - a blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cillegiolo with a couple days on skins, zero S02, and all native yeast. A lucid soft wine of fruits and spice and earth in equal parts. Hard cherry candy, cinnamon spice, morel mushrooms, and the many things I between. — 20 days ago

Paolo Bea

San Valentino Sangiovese Blend 2012

It was a Paolo Bea kind of night. What an incredible bouquet on the 2012 San Valentino. Coming in at 1.5% less ABV than the previous vintage, and showing depths of dark, earthy, almost animal-like complexities. Here I'm finding balsamic spice over dried strawberries, with moist dark soil tones, crushed stone, dusty dried florals, and hints of brown sugar. On the palate, silky textures flood the senses with flavors of sour cherry, tangerine, savory spice, and masses of exotic inner florals, as zesty acids make the mouth water, while concentrated tart red fruits and hints of tannin tugg at the side of my cheeks. The finish is long, zesty, spicy, and tart, yet still so energetic, as the wines vibrant acids refuse to give in to the intensity within. The result id a spell-binding and tactile experience that is impossible not to like, and easily one of my favorite vintages to date for San Valentino. — a month ago

Collepiano Sagrantino di Montefalco 2010

Toscana wine evening #7
Aromatic & perfumed with black fruit, raspberry jam, some fire smoke, autumn forrest leaves and a mushroom whiff. Sweet & aromatic on the nose, with beautiful structure on the palate - juicy acidity, polished yet muscular tannins.
This is, as always, a devil in angels disguise. one of my all time favorites. I love it!
