  • Monsanto Chianti Classico Reserva 2009


    Continually a favorite at the PFWC this is a perfect food or just sipping wine. Cherries, raspberries, pepper and spice and who knows what else, this 6 year old Riserva is gushing with personality and vibrancy. Plenty of structure and a lengthy aftertaste makes you wonder if it could have sat longer. Drinking well right now - Paul 90 points Read More

  • Monsanto Chianti Classico Reserva 2007


    A Top 100 wine that is just now coming into it's own, though it has been a good drinker for 2-3 years now. This was my last bottle. Typical chianti structure and framing.

  • Lungarotti San Giorgio Umbria Rosso 2005

Bursting with acidity on entry, this mellows into a mixture of dark oak and red fruit with earthiness taking the lead. Notes of cherry and dark chocolate finish out the wine with a chewy tan...

  • Lungarotti Torgiano Rosso Rubesco Vigna Monticchio Riserva 2008


    Spicy and sharp notes of ripe raspberry and cherry on the nose. In the mouth, it's nicely tart with good fresh acidity, raspberry and cranberry fruit, a dark chocolate note and robust sharp spice, mostly clove and cinnamon with some black pepper on the finish.87 pts Read More

    The nose shows aromatic black cherry, bay leaf, underbrush, black cherry liquor, with a solid dark, core of fruit surrounded by subtle rustic characteristics. The palate has solid blackberry and black cherry fruit, with flint Earth, a touch of mint, and a firm, dark finish that has plenty of grip.The acidity supports everything well in this masc...
