This is a Sangiovese wine from Emilia Romagna in Italy. What an impressive Sangiovese! Deep garnet in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose is nice with cherries, black cherries, anise, tea leaves and slight ground coffee notes. Medium to full bodied. Good acidity. On the palate, this is young with some tannins. Lots of cherries, black cherries and plums with underlying forest floor/earthiness. Good finish. There is some depth but this will take a few years to unwind. While drinking well already, a few more years of cellaring would help. If not, give it plenty of air before se
2019 Luretta Boccadirosa Malvasia Aromatica di Candia, Italy, Emilia-Romagna, Colli Piacentini, Wine Review
This is an interesting white from central Italy. Golden in color, slightly deep, clear and bright. The nose is nice with apricots and slight honey note. Medium bodied. Oily texture. Dry on the palate with good acidity. On the palate, guava with almonds and slight lime. Some depth and complexity. Long finish. This is nice on its own but better with food. It would go nicely with a plate of Proscutto di Parma. Drink over the next few years.
This is a very interesting wine made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Barbera and aged in stainless steel from the Emilia Romagna region of Italy. Deep garnet in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose is very nice with cherries, raspberries and char. Medium bodied. On the palate, there is a bit of sweetness on the attack. Firm tannins. Cassis, black cherries and slight mint notes. Moderate finish. This has some depth. It needs a bit of air to open up. This will work very well with pasta. Drink over the next three to five years.
This was different and interesting. One of the better Lambrusco's Tasted. It is a blend of 30% Lambrusco Marani, 30% Lambrusco Salamino, 20% Lambrusco Maestri, 10% Lambrusco Grasparossa, and 10% Ancellotta. It is made utilizing the Charmat-Martinotti method in which the secondary fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks.
