Community Tasting Notes 6

    August 10, 2010 - Lovely deep ruby red in appearance straight out of the bottle. This was a pop-n-pour, which I would normally not do, but for the incredible price, I decided to throw caution to the wind and hit this one right off the bat. Look, this is a completely serviceable wine that would have benefitted significantly from some self-discipline on my part. Just a couple of hours in the decanter would have elevated this juice to the 90+ point level, but not being a point whore, I am gonna throw all caution to the wind and say that this is definitely a bottle of wine that is worth your time. I think I paid a whopping $12 for this one and I have had inferior wines at twice the price.

    There is a barrel of black cherry and smoke in this nicely crafted Sangiovese blend. On the palate, there are soft tannins that are backed by a nice acidity. I can only imagine that some time in decanter would elevate this wine to a level that puts most others in the same price category to shame. It's back to the wine shop to lay in a few bottles of this beauty.

    January 20, 2010 - Deep ruby color. Reticent nose of floral powder and smoke with some mocha and sour black cherry. Good acidity on the palate, medium bodied with fine tannins.

    January 8, 2010 - Rich, red fruits on the nose. A little ripe, as in overipe for Italy, but fine. 87+

    (Rubio Montalcino) #2; COLOR-dark; NOSE-obvious chalk dust; black licorice; cherry; a little heat; subtle floral action; PALATE-sour cherry; dark chocolate shredded into dust; good creaminess; well made; showing fairly well; nice body; a little heat on the back-end, but pretty solid for $13 bones; perfect for Wednesday pizza night; GV-87/88
