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. — 8 months ago
Mushrooms vie with roses on an earthy canvas of ethereal red cherries and dried flowers. Violet and raspberry leaf to cherry on a grainy tannic tobacco and cedar with endless complexity. Outrageous Sangiovese!

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. — 8 months 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 . — a year ago
Absolutely ridiculous QPR on this #brunellodimontalcino from Trader Joe’s. Overall impressions, so much verve on the fruit set off by classic earthy-softly-spicy #sangiovese character on the palate. Rich on mouthfeel framed with firm acidity and tannins. It’s so easy to pair this wine with beef, a nice Tuscan sausage pasta, mushroom ravioli - so many possibilities. — 3 months ago
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 — 6 months ago
