  1. Fontaleoni Rosato Condorino IGT Toscana 2020
    Fontaleoni Rosato Condorino IGT Toscana 2020

    Fontaleoni is a family estate run by brother and sister team, Matteo and Simona Troiani, with a little help from consultant Paolo Caciorgna. They've succeeded in producing a range that is emblematic of the best of what the region has to offer with particular emphasis on Vernaccia.

    Like all their wines they get the primo treatment in the winery. A blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Merlot this presents with a top note of rose-petal, plum, and wild cranberry. Its bright and crunchy mouthfeel gives way to soft red fruits and that sangiovese sour cherry we all know and love. I don't know why we don't see more sangiovese base rose as they seem to get that balance of savoury and sweet so well, especially when they are pink.

  2. Poggio Dei Principi Sangiovese 2019
    Poggio Dei Principi Sangiovese 2019
    Made from Sangiovese cultivated in the area of Rubicone in Emilia Romagna. The soils in this region are a mixture of alluvial and glacial deposits (sand, pebbles and minerals), imparting a freshness of fruit not found in Sangiovese grown in other parts of Italy.

    Small yields and dedicated winemaking by this fantastic cooperative combine to produce a wine that is fresh, versatile and enjoyable.

    The perfume is fresh and fruity, with a floral and slightly herbal bouquet. Taste is fresh and juicy with cherry conserve characteristics and an earthy under-tow buttressed by the varieties firm tannins. A pizza/pasta wine if ever we tried one and bang on for the money.

  3. Monteguelfo Chianti DOCG 2020
    Monteguelfo Chianti DOCG 2020
    Wow! This was such a wonderful surprise and terrific value Chianti from the estates of Andrea Cecchi. Made from 90% Sangiovese and 10% Colorino, the wine does not see any oak and has a tradiotional leaning and plenty of character, particularly for a wine at this price. The Cecchi family has 125 years of winemaking history and have some excellent vineyards at their disposal.

    It's a wonderfully vibrant & fresh expression of sangiovese that retains its fleshy and soft fruits throughout with a pillowy texture. Hints of black cherry and wild forest fruits with a touch of leather and some savoury dried herbs.

  4. Pandolfa Federico Sangiovese 2019
    Pandolfa Federico Sangiovese 2019
    There's a crunch to the air that you breathe at the highest point of the Pandolfa vineyards, some 300m above the gorgeous 17th century es-tate now owned by Marco Cirese and his wife Alice. It's easy to spot the Adriatic through the hilly terrain of Predappio which no doubt plays its part in the coolness of that breeze and the unique character of the wines from up here.

    The winery is a packed with stainless tanks, with some barrels tucked away in a dark corner. Most are large Slavonian 'Botti' but there are a few barriques. Thankfully here at Pandolfa they've worked hard to allow the fruit to do the talking, and we are all the better off for it.

    Mid-weight and airy crunchy fruit that sizzles along nicely. No oak or other artifact to encumber the lively and fresh palate. Juicy fruits and easy to slide into. PWS

  5. Fiorini Chianti Superiore 2019
    Fiorini Chianti Superiore 2019
    Neil and Maria Empson, together with friend and star oenologist Franco Bernabei, work closely with a number of growers to style a compact range of wines representing the best of their terroir and price range. Their combined experience and expertise gives them access to a cross-section of Tuscany's finest vineyards and the merits of chosen locations, combined with strict quality parameters, ensure consistent excellence with each vintage. The result is a range combining fruit, finesse and value that makes these wines particularly food-friendly and versatile.

    90% Sangiovese with the balance a mix of Cabernet, Ciliegiolo and Canaiolo, this embraces a more somewhat more traditional blend of Tuscan varieties. A floral hint over dark berry and  typical red cherry fruit trails into a slightly more broody edge as the wine opens up. The fruit is rich and ripe with dark cherry and plum and notes of violet, spice and liquorice. There is a touch of rustic charm here with some firm tannins that melt softly into the fruit. Great stuff.

  6. Fighting Gully Road Sangiovese 2021
    Fighting Gully Road Sangiovese 2021
    Mark has been itching to do a great sangiovese here in Australia since a chance meeting with Alberto Antonio in 1997. Until recently though the clonal selection in Australia has been less then stellar driving Mark to compile a combo of various clones of sangiovese. The result is a complex and authentic sangiovese grown in his on vineyards in Beechworth. Needless to say we are very convinced!

    Savoury dried herbs sprinkled over dark glazed cherry pocked with red currant fruit and a lovely lift in that glass that is so inviting with a touch of fresh leather in the background. Starts with a crunch of red and black cherry crushed in together and laid out over zippy and lively palate. The fruit is pure and perfectly pitched against the superfine tannins. This is wonderfully vibrant and full of energy. What a ripper!

  7. Querciabella Mongrana 2019
    Querciabella Mongrana 2019

    This is soft and juicy with a lovely, velvety texture and plenty of berry and currant flavors. Hints of chocolate, too. It's medium-to full-bodied with serious structure and a flavorful finish. Sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon and merlot. From organically grown grapes. Vegan. (94) JAMES SUCKLING

    The 2019 Mongrana is Querciabella's Sangiovese-based red blend from the Tuscan coast. Fresh berry fruit, spice and floral notes give this mid-weight red lovely vibrancy and energy. Aging in cement keeps the flavors lively. This charming coastal red has a ton to offer. And its a fabulous value. ANTONIO GALLONI

  8. Balio di Zola Balitore Sangiovese di Romagna 2018
    Balio di Zola Balitore Sangiovese di Romagna 2018
    Red berries, cherries and exotic spice on the nose. Nuanced, scented nose combines raspberry, redcurrant, tobacco, leather and a mineral component. Suave, juicy and complex, with harmonious acidity giving shape and freshness to the wine's concentrated red plum, tobacco and herbal flavors. This subtly intense midweight is still tightly coiled today. Finishes savory and minerally, with substantial but polished tannins and lingering perfume. Very impressive Sangiovese di Romagna. www.vinous.com

  9. Talenti Rosso di Montalcino 2019
    Talenti Rosso di Montalcino 2019
    The 2019 Rossos give an exciting preview of how the upcoming Brunellos may fare. Some examples like this have nothing to complain about in terms of quality and complexity. It's super-pale in the glass - suggestive of the relatively high position of the estate in Sant'Angelo in Colle - with bright red currant aromas and pomegranate flavour, both completed by black pepper complexity and a smoky finish. The palate is almost full, while chewy and sweet, grainy tannins lend perfect balance with refreshing acidity and a broad, cherry kernel finish typical of Sangiovese. Great definition.

  10. Le Cinciole Cinciorosso 2019
    Le Cinciole Cinciorosso 2019

    60% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot, 20% Syrah. Notionally the entry level wine and historically the vehicle for the younger vine material although Orsini concedes that now the vines are actually not young anymore! Slightly higher yield. Fermented and elevaged in concrete and amphora. 

    Dark core of cherry (pip and fruit), nicely wafting florals and tobacco chiming in to add a savoury note here. The palate is nicely middle weight with the same brooding dark cherry fruit being complexed-up by some hung meat syrah elements. Finely etched tannins vibrancy, and a suave mouthfeel as well as some saline minerality and sanguine character (what I come to see as a feature of the site) Lovely near-term drinking and way too good for the pricing.  MICHAEL MCNAMARA

  11. Querciabella Chianti Classico 2018 375ml
    Querciabella Chianti Classico 2018 375ml
    The 2018 Chianti Classico is classy, polished and exceptionally beautiful. Like so many wines in 2018, the Chianti Classico is aromatic and gracious in feel, more finesse than power. Silky tannins wrap around a core of bright Sangiovese fruit. From start to finish, the 2018 is all class. ANTONIO GALLONI

    This remarkable estate is the life-long passion of Sebastiano Cossia Costiglioni and before him his father, Guiseppe, who planted the first vines at the estate as a hobby in the early 1970's. Giacomo Tacchis and Guido di Santi were bought on in the formative years as winemaking consultants and directed the estate to biodynamics.

    Today the estate's technical direction is overseen by another of Italy's greatest winemaking talents in Luca Currado of famed Piemontese producer, Vietti, while day-to-day running of the estate's vineyards and winemaking is handled by a passionate team led by Dales D'Allesandro and Manfred Ing. New investment in the cellars over the past years will also continue to push the quality of the wines to new levels and maintain Querciabella at the top of the Chianti tree. PWS

  12. Querciabella Chianti Classico 2017 375ml
    Querciabella Chianti Classico 2017 375ml

    The 2017 Chianti Classico is bright, floral and beautifully lifted, with lovely red berry and rose petal character. Pliant and supple, with terrific balance, the Querciabella 2017 is one of the more refined, restrained Chianti Classicos readers will come across in this vintage, with Radda very much driving the personality of the wine in its aromatic and red fruit profile. The 2017 finishes with terrific energy and nuance. This is the second vintage in which most of the wine was aged predominantly in 500L barrels and 30HL casks. ANTONIO GALLONI, Vinous

    This remarkable estate is the life-long passion of Sebastiano Cossia Costiglioni and before him his father, Guiseppe, who planted the first vines at the estate as a hobby in the early 1970's. Despite the fact the family is one of the wealthiest in Italy, Querciabella is by no means a rich mans daliance. In fact from the start it was groundbreaking in its pursuit of quality; hiring Giacomo Tacchis and Guido di Santi in the formative years as winemaking consultants and becoming biodynamic within a few years bore testament to their passion.

  13. Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino 2020 375ml
    Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino 2020 375ml

    The 2018 Rosso di Montalcino is gorgeous, mixing both primary fruit and earth tones to create a wonderfully balanced expression, showing crushed cherries in an array of smoky minerals, dusty soil and sweet herbs. On the palate, I'm finding soft textures, given life by zesty acids and backed by a core of tart blackberry, spiced-orange, and saline-minerality, as a hint of youthful tannin collects on the senses. The finish is medium in length, wonderfully fresh yet focused, as its vibrant fruits give way to lingering florals. The 2018 Rosso is yet another overperformer from Il Poggione. ERIC GUIDO, Vinous

  14. Rocca di Montegrossi Chianti Classico 2014
    Rocca di Montegrossi Chianti Classico 2014
    Rocca di Montegrossi is located in the heart of Chianti Classico, about seven kilometres from Gaiole. The name comes from the historic fortress (la Rocca) that was built during the Longobard period (600-800 AD) by Geremia, ancestor of the Ricasoli–Firidolfi family, and destroyed in 1530. Marco is part of the Ricasoli family that wrote the story of Chianti Classico, creating the formula for the wine we know today at the site of what is now his San Marcellino vineyard.  The estate covers 60 hectares, of which 18 are under vine and 20 with olives trees.

    The 2014 Chianti Classico is a surprisingly powerful, potent wine. Black cherry, smoke, licorice and dark spices fill out the wine's ample frame effortlessly. The sheer depth and intensity are impressive and show why this is such a great site. Sweet rose petal, spice and mint are some of the many nuances that blossom as the wine sits in the glass. Put simply, this is one of the wines of the vintage. ANTONIO GALLONI

  15. Vinea Marson Sangiovese 2016
    Vinea Marson Sangiovese 2016
    Crushed, cold maceration for 7 days, inoculation and natural fermentation, 10% of juice was saigneed, fermentation and maceration over 30-40 days, maturation in French barriques (20% new) for 12 months, fined, filtered. An astonishing number of 13 clones employed, which bring an extraordinary degree of complexity and savouriness to the finished wine. Feel the sun and the earth, the black cherries, charcuterie, leather and earth. Sour cherry, cherry pip resonates on the palate which is taut, savoury and wild. An Italian-Australian's glorious ode to sangiovese. Drink by 2032. JENI PORT, Wine Companion

    Le Cinciole Chianti Classico 2018
    The 2018 Chianti Classico is a wine of magnificent purity and class. Lavender, sage, tobacco and cedar open first, leading to a core of dark red/purplish fruit. Savory and earthy, with terrific persistence, the 2018 has so much going on. Readers will find a deep, layered Chianti Classico full of character. The 2018 will benefit from a few years in bottle, as it is a bit tight at this stage. ANTONIO GALLONI

    Vecchie Terre di Montefili Chianti Classico 2018
    The 2018 Chianti Classico is fabulous. Rich, deep and wonderfully expansive, the 2018 is captivating from the very first taste. A rush of blue/blackish fruit, spice, new leather, licorice and dark spice saturates the palate. In 2018, the Chianti Classico is deep and especially concentrated, but it all works so well. Readers will find a wine of uncommon power, intensity and richness. The 2018 is a big wine, there is no question about it. ANTONIO GALLONI

    Isole E Olena Chianti Classico 2019
    Made with 83% Sangiovese, 15% Canaiolo and 2% Syrah, this lovely, delicious red races out of the gate with enticing scents of perfumed berries, blue flowers, forest floor and baking spice. Smooth and savory, the juicy palate features ripe Morello cherry, crushed raspberry, white pepper and star anise alongside polished tannins. It's already drinking beautifully but will also offer several years of sheer pleasure. (94) KERIN O'KEEFE

    I tasted the 2019 Chianti Classico from a pre-bottling core blend. Supple and racy, the 2019 hints at the greater textural richness and suave tannins found in the Cepparello. Spice, mint, dried cherry and herbs add pretty shades of nuance. ANTONIO GALLONI
