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!

La Togata Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Sangiovese 2015

9.2

True to form. Pure #brunello #brunellodimontalcino #sangiovese from inner #tuscany medium Garnet color medium(+) intensity aromas of red fruits, red cherries, pomegranate, raspberry and dried red plums. Hints of herbal aromas (oregano, thyme and sage) with secondary aromas of oak (vainilla, cedar and toast) and tertiary aromas and flavors of dried red fruits. On the palate the wine is dry with medium(+) acidity, firm ripe medium(#) tannins and high alcohol and a medium(+) body. The finish is medium(+). This is a 2015 and it can still develop favorably in the bottle. It has a balance of ripe red fruits, juicy medium(+) acidity and the maturation in oak gives it the elegance and the depth to continue to develop over time. It’s aromas and flavors are still full of juicy rich concentrated red fruits and the tertiary aromas and flavors so typical of Brunello make this wine a fine example. — 2 years ago

Nice notes. I think the -15s are fantastic overall and should age really well.

Azienda Agricola i Mercatali Montalcino

Ridolfi Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2016

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!

Il Greppone Mazzi (Ruffino)

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 1999

Young and fresh from the glass with black cherry, cranberry, roses and poppy. Great vintage holding up phenomenally! Black and bing cherry palate with soft,textural black olive, bright raspberry, lingonberry and catalyst salinity. Juicy! Great acidity makes this seem so young in every way, the only hint is a slight fade to brick, but mostly unvarying rim to rim.

If you put it in a blind tasting it falls face first, but if you crack it open and don’t compare it to anything it’s a rather enjoyable wine. #bolgheri #supertuscan #italy #tuscany — 2 years ago

Val di Suga (Angelini)

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Black and red cherry fruit aromas, dried cran and raisin, display a light tangerine, sage, aloe and pepper dust. Sweet tobacco, and spot on measures of cedar and smoke. Dried cherry, pointedly tart raspberry, black cherry, cocoa, coffee, and tarragon round out the palate. Juicy in places; lean on the pyrotechnics. Balanced in a word.

L'Alberello Bolgheri Superiore SuperTuscan Blend 2017

8.9

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. — a year ago
