I’ve had all my best #antinori bottles in nice restaurants. This 2010 #chianticlassicoriserva Riserva has that classic earthy, slightly spicy #sangiovese yet up front with dark fruit, expressive cherry flavors. Other reviewers noticed harsh tannins but I found them well integrated. So satisfying with a nice Italian meal. — 6 days ago
#barbera #sangiovese #marzemino e #schiavagentile questo è il blend di un gran vino! Fanno un leggero appassimento delle uve in cassette di legno delle uve Barbera e marzemino. ( un po' come si fa con l'Amarone o lo Sfursat). Il risultato è ottimo. Tenetevene una in cantina da abbinare ad un bel arrosto. 😉 — 9 months ago
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.

Classic #sangiovese IGT. Fruitier aroma, earthy spice with nice acidity and robust tannins. Goes great with gnocchi and Parmesan cheese. — 5 months ago
Beef-a-Roni with bay leaf and poblano in a tomato sauce, dried oregano, and a crystalline, smoky incense, and a hint of turtle soup. Black cherry, something between a plum and a prune, black river pebbles, burnt strawberry jam, and beer skin. Creative depth and some winemaker influence in the cedar and tobacco that follow. But not enough to derail a beauty. #Petra #Sangiovese #Tuscany #tuscanred #italianwines #italianwinelovers #redwine #bigredwine — 9 months ago
