Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga

Fontalloro Toscana Sangiovese 2016

98+ RP, 96 VINOUS. High scores for this wine. It’s elegant with dark cherry and some soft tannins. Spicy herbs, licorice, leather, black tea, ash/tar and lavender. I found the wine a little shy and not giving enough for such high scores. Maybe it needs more cellartime….
For now 92+

Le Pergole Torte Sangiovese 2009

Powerful wine. Medium weight beautiful color. Slight silt on decant. The cherry is pronounced but the terroir is also evident and balances it nicely with earthy elements and roundness. Slightly puckering but only to give the wine breadth. It complimented the salty veal saltimbocca and I look forward to the next bottle. — 16 days ago

NOSE: earthy, Italian, rose …

TASTE: pure Italy! Almonds, earth, flowers, rocks … tar, wood ash … lots of acid and tannin … very elegant.

Not my style, but lovely: 93.

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

Fattoria Poggio di Sotto

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

Bit of barnyard funk on opening but layers of cherries, tobacco and leather all bound together with harmonious acidity. Top class silky wine. Went extremely well with short rib — a day ago

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2010

Solid showing but perhaps the bottle was a bit off. The wine had a puckering lingering element. It was still very good. Just not the balanced fruit focused effort I am used to. This vintage is great and other bottles have been better. Here is to the next one! — 11 days ago

Gerogous right out of the bottle. Fell off significantly after 4 hours of being open.
So pop drink and enjoy!
