Castello della Sala Bramìto Umbria Chardonnay 2018

Color is really light egg white. Nose is saturated with ripe banana, ripe pineapple, ripe peach, honey, oak and salty mineral, a bit Sprite, and spice. Nose is really beautiful. Taste follows the nose, yet lighter, with addition of tangerine and grapefruit. Aftertaste is in sync with the taste too, with notes shifted to mineral and zest. Just a bit too light to be great. — 9 days ago

Umbria IGT Sangiovese Blend 2000

Nice sangiovese / merlot blend. Usually I don’t care for Italian blends that are more modern in style but this is quite nice and still “feels italian”. Dusty tannins and a lot of earth, but great fruit (likely from the merlot). — 4 days ago

Còlpetrone

Montefalco Sagrantino 2011

While the nose is reminiscent of Sangiovese with red cherry, blackberry, licorice, black tea leaf, leather, and touch of smoke, it was unmistakably Sagrantino on the palate. The stern and massive tannins, together with the streaking acidity that somehow give the body a lighter feel, extrude sheer power.
Not for everyone, but I do like it a lot.

Collepiano Sagrantino di Montefalco 2014

Packs quite a punch. Intense depth, aromas of mint & herb, flavors of dried cocoa, licorice, tart plums. Acidity. Loads of prominent tannins but not drying, and medium fine grained. Very long finish. — 9 hours ago

25 Anni Sagrantino di Montefalco 1998

Very young and tannic just opened, after 1 hour in a decanter with extensive shaking opens up nicely delivering black dried fruit in the palate, resembles some young Barolo like the ones from Ravera cru, Novello. Awesome! @22 years age, long life ahead — 3 months ago
