La Calonica

Arnth Cortona Syrah

Black olive tread left burnt across blackberry tarmac. A spotting of shiitake and portobello with plum and strawberry reductions garnished with eucalyptus and parsley effusion. Black olive, charcoal, black cherry, black currant, graphite, teakwood, oolong, black pepper, dried violet and sage make this a winner. Initially pointed and closed. This is Day 3 tasting, and beefy and bright dichotomies abound. #aranth #syrah #italianwines #italian #veneto #LaCalonica #cortona #earthy #earthynotes — 2 years ago

La Calonica

Don Giovanni Cortona Sauvignon

Slight petrol on very dry switchgrass. Birchbark, paper myrtle, matchstick. Dried lemon, red apple and clove, orange pith, burnt kettle aromatics. Medium mouthfeel with lemon charge, pencil wood, madeleine, sweet grapefruit, cocktail lime and a slight persimmon and papaya reversal. Simultaneously crisp and heavy, but always lighter in retrospect. A genuine dichotomy. #cortona #toscana #italianwhite #sauvignonblancday #whitewinereset #whiteleather #bianco #donotrepeatthishashtagunlessyouwantvampirecurses #blanca #blanco — 2 years ago
