Oyster Bay

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2021

I like it! First couple of sips were not great but the aftertaste is really nice and fruity without being sweet. Still nice and refreshing Sav Blanc with just enough grassiness/earthiness. This might become my go-to Sav Blanc — a year ago

Rocca di Montegrossi

San Marcellino Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Sangiovese 2015

Brunello in disguise.
Mostly Sangiovese with as they say a small amount of Pugnitello.
Raised up in med toast barrique and tonneaux. I decanted 3 hrs.
N: Big, warm, Black cherry and Liquorice nose.You can sense the wood but it’s not intrusive. Red flowers/ Geraniums, whiff of vanilla.
P:Cherry bomb, souis bois, dirt,( in the best way) charcoal, pencil lead, nice tannic grip, beautiful acid balance. More black/red flowers. Long finish.
Not as “bright “ as many Chianti, rides the “ darkness” of Brunello, weight in between.

Azienda Agricola Fontodi

Flaccianello della Pieve Colli Toscana Centrale Sangiovese 2018

Seems almost a shame to rate this as it was just too young. There is a massive structure here with wild tannins than need at least a few more years for this wine to start fulfilling its potential. One for the back of your cellar to forget about — a year ago

Château Cibon

Cuvée Marius Côtes de Provence Cru Classé Tibouren Rosé 2018

So this happened,,,, I need to rethink & re score every Rose’ I’ve had. This is Beyond anything I’ve opened. I only started drinking Rose’ as a compromise with wifey who didn’t care for Chardonnay. But I’m not sharing these bottles, I have her porch pounders separated. No pounding these
Winery notes as follows,

Clos Cibonne is one of the most historic and prestigious estates in Provence. They are one of the few estates to cultivate and focus on Tibouren, an heirloom variety with very few hectares planted. They also age their wines under fleurette, a thin veil of yeast similar to that found in Jerez and Jura, for a year in large oak casks. The Cuvée Marius takes these practices and raises it to the next level. Named for Marius Roux, the wine is an homage to him and the original Château name. Marius would load his wine in barrel onto his cart and travel to the village every week on market days to sell his special wine. Made of 90% Tibouren and 10% Grenache, the wine is aged in smaller casks for a couple of years. It is almost a rosé in name only with its onion skin color, full body and layered intensity. This is what the French call a gastronomic wine, easy to pair with complex meals. Suitable for drinking now, this wine also has many more years ahead of it.
