Aroma speaks to that distinct #toscana wild-cherry, earthy-forest floor thing with a hint of spice. Palate presents with slightly syrupy sweet & sour cherry fruit, sweet tobacco and a spicy finish. 60% #sangiovese 20% #merlot 20% #cabernetsauvignon - nicely balanced, quaffable Super Tuscan blend. — 2 months ago
Substantial #rossodimontalcino concentrated slightly spicy cherry, forest floor, leather nose; classic #sangiovese earthy-spicy cherry on palate, touch of cigar box, easy going tannins. First-rate pairing with wild boar Bolognese pappardelle pasta. — 8 months ago
Lighter-styled Brunello offering a red cherry mint, smoky soft plum and bruised rose petal; lightest pepper, poppyseed.
Vague notes of banana and spun sugar. Tart cherry, raspberry and oregano on the palate, cedar-cigar, grainy tannins and roobios. Good Brunello for the money!

Similar notes as from a few weeks ago - this time an hour after uncorking this #sangiovese presents Morello cherry, sous bois, but the Provençal spice notes are more muted this time. Cherry, cola nut, toffee notes on the palate featuring tongue-enveloping fine tannins on the finish. The first bottle may have been opened longer. Satisfying QPR here from a #costcowine — 15 days ago
DOCG #chianti at the sub $20 price point can be all over the map in terms of quality. I knew I hit the jackpot on first sniff and sip of this producer. Earthy cherry, dark fruit on nose, lovely balance on palate; distinctive #sangiovese earthy-soft spice on finish, quite nicely knit Chianti with excellent QPR for ~$15 at #totalwine . — 5 months ago

The chameleonic nature of #sangiovese reveals itself here. This #puglia presents a savory character with blackberry, stewed plum, balsamic notes balanced against rosemary and Mediterranean herbs. Medium plus palate, racy acidity and delicate tannins on the finish. Brilliant food-friendly wine. — 2 months ago
Posh #vinonobiledimontepulciano - not many descriptive notes as it was from dinner last weekend but this was a graceful #sangiovese expression. — 5 months ago
Interesting glass cork suggests the name of this wine meaning surrounded by glass in Italian. Pretty good value #supertuscan offering - the distinctive #toscana earthy, spicy fruit from the #sangiovese dominant blend. I enjoyed the robust acidity on the finish with fine tannins. — 10 months ago
