Duca di Cardino

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2012

It's just a middle-of-the-road Tuscan #sangiovese laid back fruit, bright acidity and some earthy spice. — a month ago

Gagliole

Rubiolo Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2013

Gagliole is an ancient property sitting at 1640 feet above seal level. HOwever, having undergone a vine reintegration process, the vines are no older than 30 years. State Archives in Siena mention the estate as far back as 994 A.D. The Sangiovese vines enjoy exposure to the south-southwest, nestled between the gentle Chianti hills. A blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% merlot, it is an enjoyable and easy going red. Vibrant cherry, plum, spice and a hint of leather together with well balanced tannins give the expected crisp Chianti Classico flavours sought by many. Approachable now or within the next 3-5 years. Great value!

Castello di Farnetella

Chianti Colli Senesi Sangiovese Blend 2013

Still quite young and a little harsh on the palate. Undertones of cherry, leather and a little barnyard. Still a little tense and tannic, but should benefit from more bottle time. Should start to drink well in 2018.

Petra

Alto Toscana Sangiovese 2009

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 — a month ago

Querciavalle

Losi Chianti Classico Riserva Millennium 2010

This Chianti Gran Selezione from Losi is a blend of Sangioves with 5% Canaiolo and 5% Malvasia. Dark cherry, black pepper, a little menthol and tobacco. Nice after an hour in the decanter this will drink another 5-7 years.

Azienda Il Grillesino

Battiferro Morellino di Scansano Sangiovese 2014

Scanzano is in Maremma in southernTuscany. Down here the local clone of Sangiovese is known as Morellino, the growing season is longer and hotter than Chianti. This allows the Morellino di Scansano to fully ripen with higher sugar levels. The wine has a dark colour in the glass, and is full bodied in the mouth. Expect blackberry, spice, a little tartness and firm tannins. Tannins are not too prominent so I would not expect this to mature much after 3-5 years. Drink up!
