Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2010 Podere Poggio Scalette Il Carbonaione Alta Valle della Greve IGT. This #wine is such a puppy. I committed wine infanticide tonight for sure. Deep dark blackberry and black cherry, dusty tannins and an herb tinged finish that has a savory and almost salty dry sensation to it. Massive structure and acidity make it mind boggling that is is pure Sangiovese. IMO, this should not be touched for 10 more years at least and has the potential to outlast me. #vino #italy #italia #redwine #rosso #sangiovese #toscana #tuscany #PoderePoggioScalette #IlCarbonaione #igt #greve
I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
