Understated white flower aromas, medium-light body, moderate acidity, green apple palate and citrus oil + wet stone notes on the finish. It’s definitely a wine that likes to be served warmer than fridge, closer to 13°C. #toscana — 20 days ago
Refreshing #toscana white blend. It’s full bodied, lightly oaky, yet retains crispness with minerality and tropical fruit and green apple. — a year ago
2013 Petra Potenti Rosso Toscana IGT. 100% Cabernet from Tuscany. Lots of black fruit and still some sour cherry to add a little tartness. Some spice, leather and tobacco round out the mouth feel. Still lots of acidity and tannic structure. Easily good for another 5-6 years. Love this wine. #italianwines #tuscanwine #cabernet #italianredwine #toscana #petra #potenti #2013tuscanvintage #drinkitalianwine #italiancabernetsauvignon — 2 years ago
Deep ruby hue with garnet rim variation. Mild extraction on the glass with heavy tearing. Nose offers red fruit, such as fresh cherry and raspberry, also muddled blackberry, leather, tobacco, tomato leaf, cured meat, vanilla, and cinnamon notes. Consistent notes on the palate, with mouth-watering acidity and soft tannins. Medium+ finish. Vintage 2011. ABV 14%. #Pergolaia #caiarossa #toscana #winesoftuscany #Italianwinelover #supertuscan #sangioveseblend #winedownwednesday — 4 months ago
Cassis, fresh coconut, roasted coconut, cocoa powder, cocoa nibs. Presents on the nose as both mannerly and as a tightly-packed bomb of violets. Explodes on the palate in a panoply of fine, fresh and lifted flavors that echo the violet and cassis elements introduced in the aromas. The finish lasts more than a minute and is already suggestive of old Margaux and the greatest of Tuscan Sangiovese. #sangiovese #isoleeolena #toscana — 2 years ago
Entry level “Super Tuscan”. This blend of Cabernet , Merlot and Sangiovese is pleasant to drink with expected flavours of cherry, blackberry, some spice and a little chocolate. Good with pizza or simple pasta with meat sauce. Nice entry level wine but not a cellar keeper.
