Tenuta Guado al Tasso Il Bruciato Bolgheri Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2020

A blend of Cab Sauv, Merlot and Syrah. Deep Ruby with aromas of black and red fruits and floral spice aromas. On the palate black cherry and blackberry flavors with licorice, espresso and sweet oak spice. Smooth and refined tannins, long ending with fruit and sweet earthy tones. Consistent quality and good value. — 9 days ago

Podere Sapaio

Bolgheri Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Classic Tuscany, very nice at opening but seemed to close down during the evening. I guess this wine needs more time in the cellar. — a month ago

Castello di Monsanto

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2019

Another vintage, another lovely Chianti Classico Riserva from Castello di Monsanto which continues to be a benchmark for wines from San Donato in Poggio. Popped and poured; enjoyed over two days and consistent over both. The 2019 Monsanto CCR pours a deep ruby color with a translucent core. Medium+ viscosity with no staining of the tears and no signs of sediment. On the nose, baked mixed berries, dried green herbs, red carnations, dried gravely earth. On the palate, the wine is dry. Medium+ tannin and Medium+ acid. Confirming the notes on the nose. The finish is medium+. A lovely pairing with almost any red sauce dish. Drinking well now and I expect it will continue to do so through 2034. — 2 days ago

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia

Bolgheri Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Still very primary. An inky nose with plum, violets, pencil lead, steely notes. On the palate quite intense with hints of mocha and a black cherry sweetness. Tanning are still quite strong and biting sappy on the finish — a month ago

Tenuta Guado al Tasso Cont'Ugo Bolgheri Merlot 2021

At a tasting at the impressive Antinori facility outside of Florence. 100% Merlot from Bolgheri. Brief Notes - very plummy, excellent dark fruits, a balsamic note. Made for short term drinking I feel, to capture the current fresh fruit flavours. — a month ago
