Petra

Potenti Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

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

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.

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.

Fattoria le Sorgenti

Gaiaccia Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2006

Rosemary-mint, forest floor, cherrywood, dark river pebbles with a super-clean, lime on cedar over black cherry nose. Feels light and earthen, but reverses on the palate into an oaky and black-cherry-driven, brooding, and expansive wine with licorice, perfect tannins exhibiting racy, chewy and massive facets in a complementary staccato. Impressive. #Gaiaccia #toscana #FattoriaLeSorgenti #Firenze #TuscanWine — 5 years ago

Montemercurio

Messaggero Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Sangiovese 2010

Pure Sangiovese from Montemercurio in Montepulciano. Deep ruby coloured in the glass. Traditional Sangiovese flavours, including cherries, spice, earthiness and a hint of balsamic. Good mouth feel and acidity leaving a robust finish. The best grapes from the south west facing vineyards are hand harvested, spend 18-20 days on the skins, 18 months in large Slovenian oak vats, another 6 months in smaller vats and 12 months in bottle before release. #italianredwine #tuscanwine #sangiovese #montepulciano #montemercurio #messaggero #nobiledimontepulciano #vinorosso #italianwine — 2 years 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!

Isole e Olena

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2012

One of my favorite wine memories is the night I had dinner sitting next to Isole e Olena's Paolo De Marchi. We talked about his love for his family, his passion for winemaking and drank a lot of his incredible wine. I'm really enjoying this #ChiantiClassico tonight with Vento d'Estate cheese from @olssonsfinefoods #isoleeolena #paolodemarchi #Sangiovese @princetoncorkscrew #TuscanWine — 5 years ago

Petra

Suvereto Red Blend 2011

This 2011 Petra is a varietal Sangiovese from vineyards near the town of Suvereto, on the hills of the Val di Corona. A modern winery in a region the with vine growing roots (no pun intended) going back to the Greeks and Etruscans. Even after an hour in the decanter this wine has not fully opened. In spite of that, it is still very smooth on the palate with a noticeable earthiness, leather, tobacco and quite a bit of licorice on the finish. Good and juicy acidity, yet tannins are a little tight. Will definitely benefit from a little more ageing.

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2010

MICHAEL COOPER
8.7

Starting to oxidize. Ripe fruit. Strawberry jam, cornmeal and dried flowers. Dry in general with pronounced tannins. Not a huge fan. #brunellodimontalcino #tuscanwine #italianwines #overpriced — 4 years ago
