Riserva Rancia Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2010

9.3

Decanted for nearly four hours.

Cornmeal crust pizza w/ our fresh ingredients over a feta cheese, spinach & tomato base w/ a good 10 year old plus Chianti Classico, I’m all in!

$30…I’m happy.

This has a beautiful, round, lush body w/ early, nice integration on the beginning drinking window. Sweet & slightly sour black cherries, blackberries, plum, blueberries mix of boysenberries & raspberries, dark melted chocolate, mocha powder, well crafted baking spices, leather, mix of fresh & dark tobacco, dry, crushed limestone, dark spice, black olive, expresso notes, mid cola, black licorice, dry twigs, dry herbs, incense, touch of grilled meats, dark, rich forest floor w/ dry leaves, moist, grey clay, candied florals that are fresh to slightly withering & dark, purple, blue with excellent acidity, excellent balance & length and a rich polished finish that settles on volcanics & dry earthiness.

Really enjoying the 10 vintage.

#AgedWineTuesday

This 14 year old is drinking very nicely now. Showing red and black fruits with earth, wood, light vegetables, tobacco, coffee, espresso, wet leaves, vinaigrette and black pepper.

Dry on the palate with medium acidity.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Tangy and interesting. Just delicious.

Very tasty by itself or with food. A nice sipping wine.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

Annata Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2010

A wow wine drinking perfectly right now. Blind I would have guessed late 80s Mouton. Bright ruby with some bricking. Notes of red currant, rose hip, turned earth, iodine and mint. With time some wet tobacco. Palate is all red fruit, mint and sun baked limestone. Just elegant and lithe with fine but structured tannins. Don’t miss this one. — 6 days ago

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

Classic Chianti Classico flavor profile in a broad-shouldered package. Nose shows dried cherry, cedar and forest floor, stony gravel. Mouthfilling, with good concentration for an annata, flavors fruity at first and then quickly turning savory and minerally. Light tannin, good middle-of-the-road acidity. Medium long finish. Great value. — 19 days ago

Troncone Toscana Sangiovese 2017

An exceptional value at $20 - one of the best I’ve had recently. Ready to go out of the bottle with a bit of a chill. So fresh with great lighter red fruits. Nice reflection of higher altitude Sangiovese from Montalcino. Excellent balance and acid, medium minus tannins. Should have bought more. — 4 days ago

Riserva Gherardino Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

More notes next bottle. Red bricking at the edge. Sour red cherry. Nice aromatics. Good weight. Medium acidity. The super drying grainy tannins, at this time, renders it off balance. But this is an unbelievable value. More notes with more bottles to follow.

Il Sasso Carmignano Sangiovese Blend 2015

2015 Piaggia “Il Sasso” Carmignano. Made with Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot. It’s dark ruby red in color, rich & plump in flavor. Aromas of lavender, spice, & tobacco please your senses. Firm tannins here hence plenty of life ahead. A very dark fruit-driven wine. Cheers🍷 — 6 days ago
