Azienda Agricola Fontodi

Flaccianello della Pieve Colli Toscana Centrale Sangiovese 2019

Gorgeous color of deep purple, without variation, earthy nose of mushroom-loam, grilled duck breast, black cherry both dried and ripe, crushed violets, brown sugar and brown bread. Round and supple mouthfeel of red cherry and bing cherry, shows ample cedar and cigar notes, oak and tart raspberry, cracked black pepper, rose petal and finally winds into a smoky graphite point that will undoubtedly blossom over the next decade.

Tenuta San Guido

Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2007

Fresh violets, black cherries half-cooked, near prunes, strong fresh cut hay, blackberry reduced and fortified, chopped oak, cedar, mushroom coffee. Chewy beauty spills red and black cherries across the palate. Light sarsaparilla tones enhance a complex array of thyme, oregano, herbs de Provence, espresso that turns rose tea. Rich with power and resonance that literally won’t quit!

L'Alberello Bolgheri Superiore SuperTuscan Blend 2017

When I first tasted this with Coravin we were sure it had TCA, but it wasn’t excessively bitter or astringent and it had plenty of rich ripe black fruit...so I uncorked it today and the cork definitely smells of old winery, old church and almost pine trees but I wouldn’t call it corked cork. Even with the cork issue the wine has a smooth oily attack and firm fine-grained tannins. I am thoroughly enjoying it. #bolgheri #tuscany #italy #supertuscan The winery should definitely look into their cork provider. — 3 years ago

Le Difese Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon Sangiovese 2021

Respectable #supertuscan blend - earthy fruit, medium extract, but it was overshadowed by the second wine BDX we ordered after. — 7 months ago

Tenuta San Guido

Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 1999

Jamaica allspice submerged in black cherry, black raisin, African violets, red roses, cooked poppyseed, grilled, wine marinated steak with rosemary garnish. The palate is silky with medium mouthfeel and stealthy tannic hooks are whisked away like burrs and prickles on a satin sock. Sweet Connecticut wrap of tobacco is assisted by a minute mocha and black peppercorn. This took a while to open, surprisingly, but well worth the wait!

Jacopo Biondi-Santi

Fontecanese Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Jacobo Biondi Santi Fontecanese.
Floral aromas verge on lavender and violet, delicate cherry panna cotta, with dried red and ripe dark cherries. Clean and lithe. Cherries continue on the palate with a pliable, silky and pleasant tarragon laced tannic completeness. Dried raspberry, blackberry and hints of chocolate. Gorgeous wine

Invetro SuperTuscan Blend 2018

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. — 2 years ago

Tenuta San Guido

Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2001

Muted nose of twig and tight cherry, cranberry and allspice. Dense black, ripe and dried cherry with leather cedar and clove, a dried blackberry component, very clean tobacco note, rosemary, and thyme. Cascading layers of coffee, oak, raspberry.

Centine Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2018

Delightful #supertuscan #toscanaigt blend with heady dark fruit + a delicate touch of toasted oak and vanilla on the nose. Palate balances rich fruit with acidity and distinctive earthy-spice notes from Sangiovese. Tannins are elegant. Matched up nicely with grilled beef burgers. Excellent QPR for ~$11. — 4 years ago
