Valentino Butussi

Paolo Bea

San Valentino Sangiovese Blend 2014

Slightly turbid. Noticeable VA (not at all out of place considering Bea). Powerful notes of cherry, stone fruits (apricot and peach), and cool, damp forest earth. Medium tannins and high acid. The finish is wild and satisfying. If my previous experience with this vintage was the reference, this was not quite as impressive as it was and based on the challenges of the 2014 vintage, probably time to drink and enjoy! — 5 days ago

Vivi Colli di Rimini Grechetto 2017

Lyle Fass

100% Grechetto. 1st vintage. Rich and woody. But also mineral and caramel. Intense like a white Burgundy and so pure. Balanced and in concrete so weird that it is woody. — a year ago

Toretti's Family Vineyard

Valentino Pinot Noir 2017

Stellar pinot noir. Hands down one of my favorite producers in the 805 code. Santa Maria continues to surprise me and make me love pinot. Funky earthy umami with cherry and strawberry pie opens to fresh lively acidity and a long spicy finish. Lovely pinot. — 3 months ago
