Ageing Report: Seghesio Sangiovese 2007

The vast majority of wine reviews are about recently released wines, and for good reason. The purpose of most wine reviews is to guide consumers, and only recently released wines will be widely available for consumers to purchase. 448 more words

Wine Reviews

Sommavite, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Italia, 2008, 14% abv, US$19.99 @ Trader Joe's

I will admit to having experienced a small amount of panic when I opened this because of some extra alcoholic vapours and concerns about faults.  But those literally blew over and off and although the cork was grainy and falling apart, the wine emerged unscathed once we allowed it to unwind, relax and slip on some comfy shoes. 264 more words

Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino, 2003

 

It’s ok not to have tried many Brunellos, I tell myself. I don’t really drink them because I haven’t found a place for them.
I’m pretty sure this is a lesser vintage than the producers would boast, but even so, this was the best Brunello I’ve had yet. 49 more words

Grape Library

Fontodi Chianti Classico, 2010

Organic grapes; horse sweat, hay, brick, sun, clove, smoked cherries, cypress. Incredible wine.

 

Grape Library

Mallaluka 2013 Cabernet Shiraz Sangiovese, Canberra District, Australia

We had dinner with friends last Saturday night and everyone brought along a bottle of wine each to share. It was a fantastic night with good food, sometimes brilliant wine and fantastic company, and it felt a tad like an ancient Roman feast. 161 more words
