Il Greppone Mazzi (Ruffino)

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 1999

Young and fresh from the glass with black cherry, cranberry, roses and poppy. Great vintage holding up phenomenally! Black and bing cherry palate with soft,textural black olive, bright raspberry, lingonberry and catalyst salinity. Juicy! Great acidity makes this seem so young in every way, the only hint is a slight fade to brick, but mostly unvarying rim to rim.

Azienda Agraria Scacciadiavoli

Sagrantino di Montefalco 2013

The wine delivers aromas of ripe red fruits like black cherry and raspberries. It has strong notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and other smoked aromas. In the palate you can feel the tart red fruit flavors mixed with vegetal notes of green pepper and other herbal flavors.

It is one of Central Italy's most tannic wines. A ver interesting and recommended bottle! 🍷

About the producer: "Azienda Agraria Scacciadiavoli is an estate in Umbria situated in the wine producing region of Montefalco. It has been owned by the Pambuffetti family since 1954.

The name "Scacciadiavoli" stems from the words "scacciare", meaning to banish, and "diavoli", the Italian word for devils. This unusual name can be traced back to an 18th century exorcism of a woman, whereby she was given red wines as a means of expelling the demon from her body."
Cheers to Italy! 🍷

Castello di Volpaia

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

High acidity in the bouquet. Lemon, lime. The smell of roses burned.

I don’t usually enjoy Chianti, but I must admit I haven’t really give it a fair shot either. A few bad impressions have left me gravitating towards the northern Piedmont region.

The acidity and tartness work here. Listening to Cajun folk pop music, reading a book by candlelight, and staying in from the eminent winter storm outside, this wine promises to keep me warm, surprised, and as leafy jovial as a Spring day in Central Park.

This is a juicy treat of a wine — one that makes me astonished how the Earth can sprout something so jammy and full of life from its soil and soul.

I was impressed. It definitely shows warm climate #chardonnay characteristics like tangy tropical fruit and cantaloupe. #volcanic soils tend to warm up and stay warm. #italy #italianwines — a year ago

Tenuta di Capraia

Toscana Rosato 2013

Big nose of ripe black and dried red cherries, baked strawberry and black currant, heady lavender, dried roses, Belgian chocolate, light dusting of espresso, cinnamon, tobacco, cedar and licorice dust. Medium mouthfeel, plunges through sweet oak spices of nutmeg, vanilla, dried bing cherry, dried lavender, sage, muted mint, black pepper, burnt beef, off-ripe blackberry, black currant, tar, baker’s chocolate, espresso oils, gum Arabic, cranberry and basil. Immense and teetering on decadent. #TenutaDiCapraia #granselezione #chiantickassico #chianti #tuscany #rosso #italianwines — 3 years ago
