Villa Cafaggio

Cortaccio Toscana IGT Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Villa Cafaggio Cortaccio. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. A nice garnet colour in the glass. This 2008 is lovely. From the Panzano Estate, this wine was aged for 18 months in new French Oak. The result? A well balanced Tuscan Cabernet that delivers flavours of leather, tobacco, herbs and some earthiness. Well balanced acidity and tannins. Lovely wine.

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!

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 — 3 years ago

Tommasi

Poggio al Tufo Alicante 2013

Poggio al Tufo is a relatively new estate in the once swampy Maremma in coastal Tuscany. Tommasi, of Amarone fame planted vineyards here in 1997. The Alicante Bouschet grape is new to Tuscany, although getting more popular. This wine is a deep purple in the glass , delivering pepper, black fruits and smoke to the palate. Tannins are still a little harsh so this will benefit from another year or two in the bottle. Interesting wine from this interesting grape.

Marchesi Mazzei

Fonterutoli Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2010

2nd bottle of this wine in as many weeks. This one not quite as developed or complex as the last but still a good example of this Chianti vintage. Typical dark cherry, with some wood and spice, but a little disappointing on the finish. Chalk it up to this individual bottle as the last one was very quite lovely!

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!
