Drank 5/27/19. Excellent pairing with a Ribeye.

Nose of black cherry, plumbs, worn leather, coffee bean, and a touch of pepper. Palate with ripe, black cherry jam, red cherry, and earth. Very well balanced, with medium+ well integrated tannins providing structure that can stand up to heartier dishes. Long finish. Very nice. Will age another 5+ years, but great now with an hours decant.

4/22/9/4/4+ 50 =93 pts.

This is a nice Italian red. This Montepulciano is showing red fruits with earth notes, vegetables, tar, wood, pencil lead, peppercorn, leather, tobacco, earth and green vegetables.

Dry on the palate and medium bodied with medium plus acidity.

Nice finish with round tannins.

This 6 year old is enjoyable now, and should be better in 2 to 5 years.

Needs 30 minutes to open up properly. A Good quality wine.

A blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo Nero. Aged for 2 years in oak barrels and then one year in the bottle.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

86 points.

$29.

Enjoyed on August 18, 2019 as part of an impromptu mini birthday celebration. Paired well with ribeye and NY strip. Decanted for 30 minutes before drinking - believe it needed it. Medium body, nice balance, easy finish, black cherry notes.

Rustic sour cherries and a savory, earthy finish. Lacks structure and complexity, but is a pleasant sipper.

Present from Carl. Very nice but a little terse, didn’t really open up the following day.

Nice combination of berry flavors. A bit tanniny and tart though.

Notes of cherry and blackberry and black pepper. Balanced mellowed tannins with smooth medium finish.
