Longview Vineyard

Adelaide Hills Nebbiolo 2012

Longview Nebbiolo 2012 #adelaidehills ; not as fearsome as the label; Aussie style neb with the fruitiness followed by the reamy tannins; excellent ripeness and length; only touch savoury; fruit rather than complex flavour range; 14.5%; by two New York Italians AUD 45 fair; better than the chewy green Langhes for the same money from 2013! Ouch. #longview #drinklocal #drinkitaly #drinkalternative #sa #saturnobros #italian — 4 years ago

Castell'in Villa

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2008

Chianti Classico 2008 nearing maturity; this Castell'InVilla looks pretty rounded until you hit the tell tale sangiovese tannins which hitch your palate suggesting a mouthful of protein is best; Tuscany fared better than France in the rainy vintage of 2008; 14%; AUD 25 good value; #drinkitaly #drinktuscany #sangiovese #castellinvilla #berandegna #uncorkedandcultivated #wineandfoodtour #italy2015 — 4 years ago
