Part one can be found here, and today I follow up with part two, a look at Tuscan wines and the wines of the Rhone Valley. I love Tuscan wines and I love Sangiovese.

  • La Castellina Red Blend 2007


    The 2007 la Castellina Classico is the first Chianti I've ever tasted, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect (I normally drink Cabernet or Shiraz). A bright red hue with a mild fruity scent, this wine offers the acidity of a white wine with just a hint of the tannins found in fuller-bodied red wines. It delivers bright, focused fruit flavors wit... Read More

  • La Castellina Chianti Classico Riserva Squarcialupi 2006


    This is a personal favorite of mine. Another single vineyard offering from La Castellina. Blackberries and vanilla erupt out of the glass! The palette is rich with more black and blue fruits along with toasty oak and pepper. As the wine evolves some earthy flavors and floral aromas are revealed. This is a much richer and more structured Chi... Read More

    From the article Italy in Nine Parts. Chianti

  • A follow up to the first tasting though with more of an Italian slant this time. I have to say that several of the Californian examples continue to really impress me. Some great wine is being made out there but they will never replace the classic Chianti Classico Riservas that Tuscany can offer. Still it's worth taking a look westward!Flight 1 -... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Sangiovese PTP 2

  • Sangiovese is one of my favorite grapes. A very food friendly profile that combines high acid, small but grippy tannins and a touch of astringency makes for wine that are perfect for pairing at the table. Brunello, Chianti, Vino Nobile, Morellino, ton's of Rossos and varietal wines from the west coast will make this a great GTi.I'll kick off the... Read More
