Too young to properly enjoy right out of the bottle today, definitely needs some air or a few more years... but wonderful nose and great bones! I'm sure I would give this a higher score once it comes together a bit more.

almost four years after my first Crognolo 2007 (see my note) this bottle is more mature although remains somehow sharp and astringent at the first sip. It is not a wine to sip alone but paires at its best with a fiorentina T bone steak. But one or two hours in the decanter improve significantly its pleasantness. Liquorice, roasted coffee and some ripe black fruit in the nose and in the mouth. Very enjoyable classy supertuscan at an affordable price.

2015 Carnival Breeze Cruise Wines (Somewhere in the Caribbean): Big, young, full, and vibrant. This was utterly delicious in its still youthful state. Fairly primary but still very interesting. This is a great wine, full of character, power, and grace. Very well made. This will develop and get better with time. Will revisit in 2-3 years.

Great Super Tuscan wine! Picked to pair with a great Tuscan meal. Great balance of fruit, tannins and acidity. Never made it to dinner with it. Drank nicely on its own with appetizers. Plenty of time left to age and should be delightful in the future.

fourth magnum of the night. this had a very big sangiovese spirit to me - very high acidity - very bold and big - def needed a one to two hour decant - unfort I was unable to give it that - so popped it and poured it from the bottle about 45 minutes later. this was so wound and tight - hard to give it too high of a score - needs more time to age and next time it will need a lot of time to open up.

Tasted this side by side with a 2008 Grattamacco. The Grattamacco was smoother, more feminine and elegant which isn't surprising since it is predominately Cabernet while the Oreno is predominantly Sangiovese. As usual, the Oreno has a beautiful aroma, very dark color and is strong on the attack. Full bodied and powerful. It was a very interesting comparison since these two wines are similarly priced Super Tuscans. I ended up concluding that both wines have a place in my cellar.

Aroma of raspberries, mint, cassis, and licorice and rose petals. Strikingly smooth and elegant with blackberry and spice. Full to medium bodied. It seems to have the weight and balance of a wine from Margaux. Very refined. Drinking well now

Corvin taste alongside 2010 Saffredi. The nose on this is more new-world compared to the Saffredi, but it does have a nice nuance of forest floor. On the palate, this has good red fruit balanced by nice acidity and has a medium weight profile overall. The tannins have a bit of bite, but it is not drinking badly even though quite young. Not quite as much complexity as the Saffredi. No problems with over oaking or heat. This should be very nice as it ages. Potential for 93-94 points.

This tastes like a decent chianti. Sour black cherry, good acidity and fruit. Backbone of raisins and dark chocolate. Nice but not special. Medium finish and i think the 2010 is better. Will not improve that much over time.

Hits its stride at hour two. More bitter at hour seven, with both the tannins and acidity seeming more prominent.

A youthful-looking dark, semi-opaque magenta in color. Very pretty aromas of ripe dark fruits, flowers and spice. Full-bodied, rich and very plush in texture. The mouth feel here is akin to liquid velvet. There's impressive depth and concentration to its tangy blackberry and dark currant fruit. Displays wonderful balance too, with a moderate acidity that deftly complements its dense fruit. Prominent notes of smoke, vanilla and violets provide ample complexity to the long, lip-smacking finish. Very nicely crafted and surprisingly approachable for such a young Oreno - though still just a bit tannic. With a few years of cellar time this should develop into one of the best Orenos of the last five vintages.

One hour in the decanter but this really needed 2 to open and shine. Dark fruit with medium acidity and tannins. A blend of 40 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 40 percent Merlot and 20 percent Sangiovese. Drinking well now but could improve with a few more years in the cellar.

Bright blackfruit and cassias on the nose. Full bodied, but completely integrated and very much in balance after two hours open. Starts off with a lot of cabernet based blackfruit, especially blackberry, adds in the softer richer merlot notes in the background; bringing chocolate and currant. Mixed throughout are the brighter, more red fruit based sangiovese notes that both soften the darker cabernet notes and and a brightness to the background. Excellent length on the finish with coffee and oak notes. Outstanding mix of styles that really cam together and is showing particularly well right now.

4/4/2015 - Wine-Strategies Likes this wine: NR

Finely structured blend of Sangiovese, Cab Sauv and Merlot, that shows skill in the cellar, but also purity of fruit. Some bricking beginning to show, but as the nose and palate confirm, this has another 5-7 years of very good drinking still ahead. So many 03s from various parts of Europe get a general label of 'HOT vintage' - as if to say 'forget about it' - and yet the more I drink these wines (granted, they're from well-known, disciplined producers), the more I'm finding them to my liking. This is a winner, and is at peak right now. Medium>full-bodied, excellent lift and a long, focused finish. recommended

Aerated in decanter 3 hours, served non-blind.

Pop and pour and served with food (cauliflower soup and chicken dumplings, in case you were interested).
Dark color. Nose shows some oak and black cherries. This has a good Initial impression of acidity, followed By black cherries and some black licorice. Shows a bit of oak and vanilla that will likely become subdued with time in the bottle. Still, at present it is a bit "oaky."
Good wine but not great.

This is still too early but I really wanted to try it. Rewarding. The wine has a warm, expressive nose though with an off-putting whiff of alcohol. All is forgiven when the wine gets in the mouth. Lush and soft opening with black cherry compote, evolving to warm stewed red fruit preserves. (Sorry. Tried to nail it down but failed.) the finish is long with a bit of eaucalyptus and minerality and ripe red fruit, though shut down by strong fine tannins. If I had half a case of this in the cellar which, sadly, I do not, I would open one every two years and be dramatically rewarded on bottles 3 - 6. This is a special wine, even with its youthful indiscretions.

Good but less enjoyable than last time. Reasonable acidity. Fairly dry. Some deep fruit. Stewed fruit? Good body .. rich wine. Had it with a tomato based pasta sauce and could use a little more acidity ... rich wine. Can taste the oak though ... present.
