    Wine review by CageyT


  • Tenuta Valdipiatta is a property full of surprises, the first of which is the ... -- with a bit of Mammolo and Canaiolo added for complexity and balance -- as well as wines based on Pinot Noir and Bordeaux varieties. Of course, the focus here is on the great wines of Montepulciano, and with 80% of the vineyards planted to Sangiovese, that’s ... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    I tasted a 2008 bottle. The wine was clear had a strong berry smell (that's the best I can identify so far !!!) and had a not very long aftertaste. Apr 1, 2010 at Borsalino-Rio de Janeiro. Read More

  • Acorn Sangiovese Alegría Vineyards Russian River Valley 2007

    Snoothrank:

  • Acorn Sangiovese Alegría Vineyards Russian River Valley 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Snoothrank:

    Clumps of earth, red fruit, and spice nose. Oak is certainly present but well integrated with the big bright red fruit, mostly raspberries and cranberries. There's a bit of burnt rubber on the finish. Read More
