Le Corti Chianti Classico 2005, Sangiovese Wine

Le Corti Chianti Classico 2005, Sangiovese Wine

Origin: Italy - Chianti
Characteristics: Le Corti Chianti Classico 2005 “Principe Corsini”

The Corsini family has every right to claim the mantel of “the true Chianti” - their sons have taken time away from their roles as Princes of Florence (and as Pope) to make the wine at their home “Le Corti” since 1427 - before Columbus sailed to America! Even today there is something casually aristocratic about this classic Chianti – it envelopes you with supple fruit, luxuriously ripe black cherries and plums. The scents are sophisticated, the subtle smoke of hazelnut and butternut. The flavors are racy and elegant, full of tension and lean energy. The tart cherry last flavors linger on and are seductive - this wine is so harmonious and effortless that you might be a bit startled when the bottle is finished and you think back: this wine has captured all of your attention, without ever demanding it. Good Chianti is magic. -Wine Review by PD (tasted January 2009)

Drouhin Beaune Clos des Mouches Rouge 2017 
Characteristics: We have more Red Burgundy without notes that any other varietal or region. That is probably because we buy more wines from this region than any other and barrel tasting notes are very early impressions so not very useful in this context. The wines vary within the region but are nearly all made from the same varietal, Pinot Noir, so I can give you a reliable idea of what to expect. The colour can range from robish to quite light but don’t be fooled. The nose is tease; its ethereal, dried roses, spring deciduous leaf, tea leaves and often a sweet earthiness. In the mouth it is often very supple and silken. The flavours are from a motley palette including cherries of most any hue, sometimes truffle, gaminess and a wonderful comforting earthiness.

Girardin Savigny-les-Beaune Serpentieres 2015 
Characteristics: Vincent Girardin 2009 Savigny-les-Beaune Serpentières, Côte de Beaune | 13.5% | Delicious wine from 50 year old vines of Pinot Noir on the Premier Cru climat of Les Serpentières. The village of Savigny-les-Beaune is located in the Côte de Beaune, a couple miles north of the village of Beaune. The wine area of Savigny-les-Beaune is one of the oldest of Burgundy and a lot of parcels belonged to the Dukes of Burgundy and to the Abbeys of Citeaux and Maizières. "Les Serpentières" is located at the opposite of the Marconnets' plot and here the soil are chalky with stones and gravels a bit of clay. In 228 liter French oak barrels of which 15% are new, malolactic fermentation takes place and the wine is then aged 14 months, and then bottled without fining or filtration following the moon calendar. A wine with plenty of fruit with well integrated structure, this is full and round, very long and charming start to finish. In terms of food pairings, this is versatile but for starters think starters, pâtés, white and red meat.

Marchesi Pancrazi Pinot Noir villa Bagnolo 2010 
Characteristics: Pinot Noir Villa di Bagnolo Toscana IGT: 100% Pinot Nero almost exclusively from Burgundian clones. The vineyards are south-facing, and the microclimate is cool and well ventilated, with significant temperature variance between daytime and nighttime. Altitude is moderate, 0-492 feet a.s.l., favoring grape maturation. The soil is shaly and clayey, volcanic in origin (Monte Ferrato is an extinct volcano) and particularly rich in iron, which is instrumental to Pinot Noir complexity. Water supplies in the Bagnolo area are abundant throughout the year and the soil itself has high levels of humidity; these are crucial factors for the variety, which is especially sensitive to drought. The wine is aged one year in French oak barriques followed by one year of bottle aging. Small crops and cru characteristics endow the wine with superb intensity, purple color, remarkable fruit aromas reminiscent of blackberries & plums, also mint nuances, coffee, licorice & vanilla; round, soft, luscious & lingering on the palate.

glasses on fine wine is profound. I cannot emphasize enough what a difference they make."
