Jacopo Biondi-Santi

Fontecanese Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Jacobo Biondi Santi Fontecanese.
Floral aromas verge on lavender and violet, delicate cherry panna cotta, with dried red and ripe dark cherries. Clean and lithe. Cherries continue on the palate with a pliable, silky and pleasant tarragon laced tannic completeness. Dried raspberry, blackberry and hints of chocolate. Gorgeous wine

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. — 3 years ago

Le Difese Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon Sangiovese 2016


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 — 3 years ago

Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 1999

Jamaica allspice submerged in black cherry, black raisin, African violets, red roses, cooked poppyseed, grilled, wine marinated steak with rosemary garnish. The palate is silky with medium mouthfeel and stealthy tannic hooks are whisked away like burrs and prickles on a satin sock. Sweet Connecticut wrap of tobacco is assisted by a minute mocha and black peppercorn. This took a while to open, surprisingly, but well worth the wait!

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!)

Invetro SuperTuscan Blend 2018

Interesting glass cork suggests the name of this wine meaning surrounded by glass in Italian. Pretty good value #supertuscan offering - the distinctive #toscana earthy, spicy fruit from the #sangiovese dominant blend. I enjoyed the robust acidity on the finish with fine tannins. — a year ago

Tenuta San Guido

Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2007

Fresh violets, black cherries half-cooked, near prunes, strong fresh cut hay, blackberry reduced and fortified, chopped oak, cedar, mushroom coffee. Chewy beauty spills red and black cherries across the palate. Light sarsaparilla tones enhance a complex array of thyme, oregano, herbs de Provence, espresso that turns rose tea. Rich with power and resonance that literally won’t quit!

L'Alberello Bolgheri Superiore SuperTuscan Blend 2017


When I first tasted this with Coravin we were sure it had TCA, but it wasn’t excessively bitter or astringent and it had plenty of rich ripe black fruit...so I uncorked it today and the cork definitely smells of old winery, old church and almost pine trees but I wouldn’t call it corked cork. Even with the cork issue the wine has a smooth oily attack and firm fine-grained tannins. I am thoroughly enjoying it. #bolgheri #tuscany #italy #supertuscan The winery should definitely look into their cork provider. — 3 years ago
