Vintage 2015 / wine from #umbria central #italy with the unusual blend of #sangiovese #sagrantino and #merlot (on barrel). It was quite harsh in bitters/aftertaste immediately after opening, tannins also. But when it had aeration the wine softened and even shows frivolousness 🙃 Beautiful strawberries in smell, smooth taste. I liked this transformation. Awesome PRQ. I presume it will even gets better within a few years. — 17 days ago
Vintage 2005 / Sometimes one has to be patient. Thirty (!) years ago I asked for this wine in a local wineshop. The owner took a wine encyclopedia and said with some admiration in his voice: thát is a nice wine, sir. They did not sell it. I forgot it. And found the wine a few weeks ago 🙃 nice smell with roses and spices. Awesome balance with perfect vivid acidity. Honey. Nectar. I will buy this wine immediately when I see it again. For sure😄 #breganze #italy — 4 months ago
There was a lot that came out of the bottle when the cork was pulled. Rich cherries and pepper immediately hit your nose. I found cherries and raspberries and a slight sweet cigar leaf on the palate. This has a great finish that lingers nicely. #Italy #Livorno #Argentiera #supertuscan — 10 months ago
the golden glow of saffron-fueled Milanese risotto - delicate yet sinfully creamy - a dish that dates back to 1574 inspired by the artist who worked on the stained glass of the #Duomo of #Milan - perfect with affordable cherry/earthy/peppery #AldoConterno Conca Tre Pile Barbera d'Alba '14 #wine #Milano #Italia #Italy — a year ago
Tenuta Guado al Tasso (Antinori) Bolgheri Superiore 1999
Plum, fig, leather, mushroom, dried dark fruits, shaved chocolate with a medium body. Probably past its peak.
