    July 7, 2020 - Such an amazing, beautiful, smooth wine. We had another 75$ Brunello from 2010 that same evening, and we typically are in love with that one ( and still are ), but this one here is in another class. Awesome.

    June 29, 2020 - Tasted blind, added as a pirate in a large Bordeaux 2010 10 years on tasting (served in an all blind flight along Cheval Blanc, Ausone and Angelus). This is wine held up well against the heavy competition and ended on the shared 10th overall rank (out of 64 wines) with an average rating of 95.4 points. It doesn’t have the complexity of the best wines tasted that night but to my surprise it is so soft, so luxurious, with sex appeal and an incredible precision. Certainly the best Sangiovese I‘ve tried to date (and a much better wine than the bottle I‘ve had a three years ago). Easily 95/96 points, could be even higher when following it over an evening.

    TN: At first a slightly muted nose but with time more open with dark and more bright red fruit and some herbs. On the palate sensational with so much high precision red berries, especially strawberries, herbs and some earthy tones. So luxurious, weightless texture, ultra-fine tannins without any edge, good freshness and a very long, red fruit driven finish.

    Decanting: Doesn‘t seem to need a long decant. 1 or 2 hours should do the job.

    June 22, 2020 - Grand Bordeaux 2010 ten years on tasting; 6/21/2020-6/22/2020 (Fribourg): Big Bordeaux 2010 2-day horizontal hosted by a private collector. My 3 main takeaways from the vintage were 1) more frequent perception of heat, 2) a slightly stronger left bank and a less consistent right bank, 3) while in general it is still too early to pop the 2010s, wine selection is key as some appear to be in decline already, especially on the right bank. The top wines were Mouton (99), Margaux (98) and VCC (98). The biggest positive surprise was Clos Manou (95). Biggest disappointment was Pape Clement (86). More details and complete tasting overview included in the tasting story.

    Tasting note:
    An Easter egg planted in this Bordeaux horizontal. Light yet full of scents, perfume and floral notes, some sweetness, fine herbs. Juicy and absolutely fantastic palate with fresh red fruit, firm structure yet light. This found pretty skeptical reception from the crowd obviously being a very different beast from the rest. But in my view this was fabulous and easily the best Sangiovese I ever had.

    June 11, 2020 - Atsa Lotsa Brunello! Zoom Tasting: This week's Zoom tasting featured Italian Brunello's. The wines were double decanted at around 4:00 to remove sediment, poured into glass jars and sealed for transport at 4:30, and poured into glasses at 6:30 for consumption. The wines were served single blind format (knew all the wines in the line-up, but not which wine was in the glass) and as follows:

    - 2003 Casanova di Neri Tenuta Nuova
    - 2007 Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino Altero
    - 2010 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino
    - 2010 Casanova di Neri Tenuta Nuova
    - 2012 Altesino Brunello di Montalcino
    - 2013 Azienda Agricola Le Ragnaie
    - 2015 00 Wines Chardonnay VGW (Starter wine)

    All wines were ranked blindly. The group's top 3 wines were as follows: (1) 2012 Altesino; (2) 2010 Valdicava; and the 2003 Casanova di Neri. My rankings were slightly different. I ranked as follows: (1) 2003 Casanova; (2) 2010 Valdicava; (3) 2010 Casanova; (4) 2012 Altesino; (5) 2007 Poggio Antico BdM Altero; and (6) 2013 Azienda Agricola Le Ragnaie. All wines were very good, except the 2013 Azienda Agricola Le Ragnaie wasn't really in my wheelhouse. I also was not too crazy with the 00 Chardonnay.

    2010 Casanova - Another very nice wine in an excellent line-up! Nose was perfumed (which, in hindsight, should have clued me in that it was a Casanova) with violets, cherry blossom and sweet cigar box the most prevalent, but also hints of spices and herbs and some new leather. The mouthfeel was nice with tannins present, but relatively smooth and acidity at a good level. The palate featured plenty of red fruit and earthiness, along with sweet cigar, leather and spice, and some toasty oak in the background. I thought the acidity was too balanced to be a young wine, so I guessed it was the '07 Poggio (Yes, I suck at guessing wines in blind tastings, but it is still fun!). Mine and the group's number 3 wine. Note: I only scored this one point lower than my number 1 wine...that is how close the top 3 were for me! This wine will undoubtably improve with additional bottle age. I would give it another 5 years to peak. 93+ with potential to increase another 2+ points.

    June 11, 2020 - Virtual Single Blind Brunello Tasting (Home): Very dark red color, saturated. Spash double decanted 2.5 hours before serving. Drank a glass single blind over 2.5 hours. This has a beautifully perfumed nose of violets, roses, and red fruits, scorched earth, tar, sweet dark raspberry. The palate offers dark fruits, sleek dry tannins, tobacco, good depth and poise. This is a beauty in the making. Thought this was a '10 and picked as the '10 CdN. My #2 WOTN. 92+(+)pts.
