Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 1996

Truly a memorable wine experience for this perfectly stored Sassicaia. The perfume on this wine was mesmerizing - Licorice, old library, tobacco leaves, leather and spice with a touch of cassis. I nosed it for 10 min before even tasting it (praying to the wine gods that the wine was intact) - perfection on the nose in my book. The palate lived up to the nose and perfectly reflected the notes with an added touch of dried roses and a hint of graphite. Why not a 10? The finish was a tad short, but I’m splitting hairs - I bought two more bottles of this from the amazing restaurant we ate at - La Caravella - in Amalfi. An outstanding restaurant, rich history (including a 1000 year old wine cellar with 20k bottles of wine which the staff graciously offered for me to tour) and lovely chef. A must visit for any wine/food geek if you’re on the Amalfi Coast. — 2 days ago

Castello dei Rampolla

Sammarco Toscana SuperTuscan Blend 2014

Left over from a friend which was open for a couple of days (but vacuum and chilled). This wine definitely needs more bottle age. Acidity, tannins and fruit are all over the place. But don’t get me wrong, still a fantastic wine, the best is yet to come! — 6 days ago
