Very elegant nose, still very young, restrained. typical Sangiovesse Grosso. Hint of cedar along with cherry and eucalyptus. slight vanilla and caramel spice and earthy mocha notes. silky soft palate then dusty tannin's grip on and take over followed by tangy acidity finishes sharp then some lingering slight vanilla and herb notes.

2006 Cerbaiona (Molinari) Brunello di Montalcino

Sangiovese more

7/1/2015 - Collector1855 wrote: 99 points

Medium garnet/brick, light in color. Nose of pine tree, roses, strawberry with flowers and a bit of oak as well as touch of horse saddle. Enters the palate fruity and light bodied at first but with great mid mouth feeling at the same time and a superb, sappy finish. Light yet present, fruity yet astringent. Cerbaiona is one of this wines that can "square the circle" by combining opposite poles, Musigny in style. Weightless but so much aroma and at the end with a refreshing finish. Even better than the superb 2007. I would drink the 2007 now and give the 2006 2-3 more years. Cerbaiona remains my favorite Brunello. As it sits in the glass it gets better and better. Simply outstanding. 98-100

2006 Fattoria Poggio di Sotto Brunello di Montalcino

Sangiovese more

7/1/2015 - Collector1855 wrote: 95 points

Medium garnet, light and shiny color. Expressive nose of red cherry, berry, sweet spices. This is very fruity, not earthy in style. Elegant and light on the palate, great fruit and acidity, very soft tannins, a ballerina. Did really well on the table especially with the women (who preferred this to the Eglise Clinet 08).

Perfectly drinkable but nothing noteworthy. I expected more. Nothing wrong with it, just no reason to recommend it. Quite smooth though.

2010 Monteraponi Chianti Classico Riserva Baron'ugo

Chianti Classico DOCG Sangiovese Blend, Sangiovese more

6/15/2015 - Pknut wrote: NR

This was excellent. Smooth mouthfeel, seems completely ready to drink right now. Extremely well balanced. Greg says that the structure is completely buried in the fruit presently. Amazing balance and symmetry. So utterly fine. Delicious. One of the best CCRs I’ve ever had. Old vines, single vineyard. Just terrific. Purchased in San Gimignano and enjoyed with Greg at Fietri, Gaiole in Chianti.

6/14/2015 - Pknut wrote: NR

This note is for the "Riserva".
The 15% oak aging imparts a rounded mouthfeel to this wine. Not much cut. But quite nice on the palate, with round, golden fruit, and good texture. I prefer wines with more cut and acidity, e.g., unoaked Vernaccia, but this was nice. Outside at Fietri, Gaiole in Chianti, with Greg, in the rain.

2006 San Giusto a Rentennano La Ricolma Toscana IGT

Merlot more

7/1/2015 - TheLittleHorse Likes this wine: 92 points

Beautiful purple color with a shining definition at the rim. This had an interesting combination of Asian spices, turned soil, oak, and mocha notes all intertwined rather than having overtly fruity sensations. Unfortunately I think this probably needs a few more years in bottle because the tannin levels are still fairly apparent. Another excellent 100% merlot from Italy.

2006 Conti Costanti Brunello di Montalcino

Sangiovese more

7/1/2015 - sale202 wrote: 100 points

I don't know why it's so hard to give this wine 100 points. I can surely say that this is an exceptional Brunello. Medium garnet color. Medium (+) nose with a whole lot going on - notes of chocolate, dried plum, leather, vanilla, cloves. Dry, medium acidity and tannins, pronounced flavor intensity, long finish and fabulous balance with just the right amount of alcohol. Opened it at the right time and paired it with a juicy steak. Perfection.

Another excellent showing, particularly for a third wine. Violets, herbs, cranberry, and blackberry. High acid, medium minus to medium tannin, substantive finish. This wine requires two to three additional years to come into its own.

Herbs and vegetables nose. Medium weight with a nice earthiness and cedar. Well structured with acidity in check. Enjoyable but not amazing. Well worth $25, but perhaps not some of the other reported prices.

A nice summer white with grapefruit and citrus florals and lean tart flinty minerality. I think there's a touch of riesling in there and a suggestion of secondary fermentation.

Deep, dark reddish-purple in color; almost opaque. Full, forward & attractive nose of ripe dark fruit aromas of cherries, blueberries & plums with floral overtones, earthy, dusty, spices, olives, cocoa, herbs & minerals. Medium bodied with a good concentration of balanced & smooth textured, dark fruit flavors of cherries, blueberries & plums with spices, dark cocoa, herbs & minerals. Lingering finish. Readily accessible at present, but has the potential for continued development from additional few years aging.
