  • 1997 Marchesi Mazzei Castello di Fonterutoli Siepi Toscana IGT

    From my private cellar acquired since the released on the market.It exhibits a garnet colour with brick rim.At the first sniffed the wine is immediately very forward with very mature cherry,spicy,liquirice with breath it reminds a Porto, with ripe fruits it seems to be older than a 1997.The sip is soft and powerful with a mature sour cherry well balanced,round and remarkable persistance.It's better in the mouth than at the nose, but take into consideration the vintage (1997 is considered a great vintage in Tuscany.......but I've some doubt)I've to say that this tasting of Siepi 1997 is disappointing.Drink up quickly because the wine is dying away!!!!!

  • 2004 Azienda Agricola Montevertine Toscana IGT

    Wow a great job here, in a considerable vintage for Montevertine.A wonderful bright ruby colour with pale rim.Just poured it is immediately polished it exhibits a powerful nose of dark cherry, black pepper,eucalyptus, chocolate it gains complexity with oxigen.The sip is lively sharp with flavours of black cherry with the typical acidity of sangiovese great definition and nice persistance.This is a perfect matching with meat and game.At this stage is very young with many years ahead.Probably the best Montevertine ever produced!!!!!!!

  • 1998 Antinori Tignanello Toscana IGT

    Popped and poured without decanting the wine displays a nice pale garnet colour.The first sniff boasts cherry,black pepper,tobacco orange peeel and vanilla.It exhibits more elegance than power.In the mouth the tannins are smooth with ripe fruits in evidence, it lacks some complexity and roundness.A decent final but not a great vintage for Tignanello.It's ready to drink but it'll last some more years in the cellar.
