Santa Cecilia Noto Nero d'Avola 2007

2007 Planeta Santa Cecilia. Nero d’Avola from Noto in the far south of Sicily. Ruby red in colour, the black fruits have matured well. Deep and full in the mouth, herbs, leather, some tobacco and a pleasant chocolate lingering on the long finish. Really enjoyed this wine.

Petra

Potenti Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

2013 Petra Potenti Rosso Toscana IGT. 100% Cabernet from Tuscany. Lots of black fruit and still some sour cherry to add a little tartness. Some spice, leather and tobacco round out the mouth feel. Still lots of acidity and tannic structure. Easily good for another 5-6 years. Love this wine. #italianwines #tuscanwine #cabernet #italianredwine #toscana #petra #potenti #2013tuscanvintage #drinkitalianwine #italiancabernetsauvignon — a year ago

Montemercurio

Messaggero Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Sangiovese 2010

Pure Sangiovese from Montemercurio in Montepulciano. Deep ruby coloured in the glass. Traditional Sangiovese flavours, including cherries, spice, earthiness and a hint of balsamic. Good mouth feel and acidity leaving a robust finish. The best grapes from the south west facing vineyards are hand harvested, spend 18-20 days on the skins, 18 months in large Slovenian oak vats, another 6 months in smaller vats and 12 months in bottle before release. #italianredwine #tuscanwine #sangiovese #montepulciano #montemercurio #messaggero #nobiledimontepulciano #vinorosso #italianwine — a year ago

Petra

Suvereto Red Blend 2011

This 2011 Petra is a varietal Sangiovese from vineyards near the town of Suvereto, on the hills of the Val di Corona. A modern winery in a region the with vine growing roots (no pun intended) going back to the Greeks and Etruscans. Even after an hour in the decanter this wine has not fully opened. In spite of that, it is still very smooth on the palate with a noticeable earthiness, leather, tobacco and quite a bit of licorice on the finish. Good and juicy acidity, yet tannins are a little tight. Will definitely benefit from a little more ageing.

Planeta

Santa Cecilia Noto Nero d'Avola 2007

Planeta 2007 Santa Cecilia from 100% Nero d’Avola. 2nd bottle for me and every bit as good as the first. Deep red in the glass. Dark berry fruit, herbs, leather, tobacco and cocoa on the long finish. Great example of the Sicilian variety, Nero d’Avola. I think this has the structure to last another 5-7 years. Gotta find some more of this...#planeta #sicilianwine #noto #nerodavola #santacecilia #italianredwine #2007sicilianvintage #notodoc #planetadisantacecilia — a year ago

Villa Cafaggio

Cortaccio Toscana IGT Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Villa Cafaggio Cortaccio. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. A nice garnet colour in the glass. This 2008 is lovely. From the Panzano Estate, this wine was aged for 18 months in new French Oak. The result? A well balanced Tuscan Cabernet that delivers flavours of leather, tobacco, herbs and some earthiness. Well balanced acidity and tannins. Lovely wine.
