Mendocino County Sagrantino 2017

I’m a huge VJB fan but I gotta be honest that I was a bit disappointed in this #sagrantino. It drinks similarly to a Dry Creek Valley old vine Zin. Big fruit lovers will rejoice but I was looking for more bright acidity and it was a touch syrupy for my preference. — 2 months ago

Tenuta Alzatura

Montefalco Rosso 2015

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. — a year ago

Sagrantino di Montefalco 2012

Vintage 2012 / Ha, in a blind tasting I thought this was a Brunello. 🤨 it does not have that typical stubborness of #sagrantino that I like do much. Brown rim, shy smell with cedar, noble. So much refinement. It may be a bit atypical for #umbria but who cares? — a year ago

Paolo Bea

San Valentino Sangiovese Blend 2011

Paolo Bea never ceases to amaze me. The 2011 San Valentino is gorgeous, showing an Autumnal persona, with a bouquet of crushed cherry, plum, and blood orange, giving way to notes of sweet mint, licorice, crushed fall leaves and black tea. On the palate, I found a zesty expression, sporting light yet energetic textures, as citrus-kissed sour cherry, sweet herbal tones and spice filled the senses. The finish was medium-long and literally thirst quenching, with mouthwatering acidity accentuating it's red fruits and lingering inner floral tones which faded slowly. An amazing "entry level" wine. #paolobea #montefalco #sagrantino — 2 years ago
