Community Tasting Notes 11

  • Gregmonroe Likes this wine:

    September 21, 2021 - Medium red color, nose of bright red fruit that jumped from the glass when pouring two glasses, a slight earthiness that I typically associate with Chianti, but mostly bright red fruit on the palate. Great with pasta and after some air, quite enjoyable by itself. A good wine.

    September 7, 2021 - A bit light bodied even for a Sangiovese. Red berry, Very bright. Medium finish.

    August 7, 2021 - Plums, pipe tobacco, violets, and loads of acid in the supple tannins. Really nice wine.

  • Eric/Sarah cellar’s Likes this wine: 92 points

    July 10, 2021 - Great taste! Goes well with red meat but possibly better with red sauce on pasta or pizza.

  • Jackstraw212 Likes this wine: 93 points

    May 21, 2021 - Black olives, red cherries, bell peppers, hot pepper flakes, and orange zest. Loads of heat and acid on the finish. Perfect match for tomatoes.
