Wonderful smelling, with leather, clove and powerful black fruit. How nice to see a ’99 rosso doing so well now. The flavors on this wine are dynamite, a rustic and ready combo of cherry, cassis and blackberry. Finishes tight and firm, meaning it still has some time to go.
This is a beautifully extracted expression of Colorino (a native grape of Tuscany) with a dark, luscious appearance and musky notes of forest floor, moist earth and porcini mushroom. The wine is smooth and supple in the mouth and moves forward with grace despite its meaty consistency and slightly sweet aftertaste.
A blend of Grechetto and Trebbiano, this attractive Vin Santo from the Montepulciano area of Tuscany offers aromas of resin, butterscotch, caramel, toasted almond and sun-dried apricot. A crisp close helps wash away any lingering sweetness.
There’s vibrant fresh fruit here in the form of cherries, forest berries and a touch of ripe strawberry backed by simple vanilla and spice. This is not an overly complex or cerebral wine, but it is a fresh, zesty one that would pair well with hearty bean soup or pasta.
This vintage of Vino Nobile shows lots of fresh acidity, but it has little fruit to soften the cut. It feels slender and crisp, and it shows a light berry flavor, veiled by mild spice and leather notes.
A nice surprise from the Chianti Colli Senesi wine region, this Sangiovese-based wine is fresh and bright, and it comes with berry aromas that are followed by blue flower and wet earth notes.
Full and round, with plum, berry and herbal aromas. The racy, mouthfilling palate features raspberry, cherry and oak, while the finish delivers coffee and vanilla. A well-made Tuscan red.
