Centine Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2018

Delightful #supertuscan #toscanaigt blend with heady dark fruit + a delicate touch of toasted oak and vanilla on the nose. Palate balances rich fruit with acidity and distinctive earthy-spice notes from Sangiovese. Tannins are elegant. Matched up nicely with grilled beef burgers. Excellent QPR for ~$11. — a month ago

It is very typical of a #supertuscan wine = deep ruby color, medium(+) aromas and flavours of black cherry, red and black plum and hints of cassis and mint with toasty undertones. The tannins need a little polishing. I believe it needs to age. — 6 months ago

#overrated tasted it blind with 3 other #supertuscan wines ranging from 40€, 75€ and these and #ornellaia (the best). all the other 3 were better. This was light intensity aromas on the nose, it really the least aromatic and then on the palate it was acidic just a little disjointed and unbalanced. — 6 months ago

Interesting comment, @MICHAEL COOPER— many years ago I secured 4 bottles of the 1985 Sassacaia on release, put one into a 1985 Bordeaux/CalCab super vertical with 5 flights, 30 wines total, blind to everyone (I knew which flight of 6 it was in, but not which wine it was). Our group of 12 tasters was so underwhelmed that I took advantage of the RP100 score and unloaded the remaining 3 bottles for more than $1,250 per, and never looked back. To each his own, though, as I know folks who adore Sassacaia!!

@MICHAEL COOPER , meant too add the blind vertical tasting was in 1995, IIRC.

Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1994

1994 Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore


Off vintage. A difficult year. Lighter in color than expected. The red fruits were very much alive but on a very delicate structure. Still enjoyable but wanted more from
Ornellaia. (Edited: On the second day, Ornellaia delivered! Wow. It is still delicate but in a perfect harmony.)


オフヴィンテージ1994年のワイン。思っていた以上に薄い色。フルーツ感は健在でしたが、非常にデリケートな構造の中に存在しているとでも申しますか、難しい年だったことがわかるワインでした。楽しめるワインでしたが、Ornellaiaからはもう少し厚み、芳醇さが欲しかった。(編集・追記: 2日目。Ornellaiaはやってくれました。とてもデリケートな構造の中に完璧なハーモニーが!)

A little too much on the ripe side of things. Much better on the palate than on the nose. Still excellent for the price. #supertuscan #cabernetsauvignon #italy #bolgheri — 6 months ago

If you put it in a blind tasting it falls face first, but if you crack it open and don’t compare it to anything it’s a rather enjoyable wine. #bolgheri #supertuscan #italy #tuscany — 5 months ago

Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

perfume of dark berries, fig, baking spices & tobacco ~ the dark berry flavors lean a touch jammy but are in check by a quick pop of crunchy red fruit, some Asian spices, and a hint of Mediterranean herbs ~ plush mouthfeel w soft dry finish ~ lovely #SuperTuscan to follow next 15 yrs! — 6 months ago
