Vinous 95 Points! From Vinous: The flagship 2012 Tenuta di Valgiano is beautifully resonant and generous in the glass, but also translucent in its ample beauty. Pine, mint, wild flowers and spices add an appealing upper register as the 2012 shows off its radiant personality. The Tenuta is a bit less overt and ripe than the Palistorti, but, it, too is not a shy wine. All the elements fall into place effortlessly. This is the finest wine I have tasted from Valgiano, without question."

An "a-ha" wine moment from maybe 12 years ago that I have not seen on a shelf in maybe 8 years. The moment was the brilliance of learning how acidity in wine acts as a preservative and enhancer of a wine (consumed over 3 days). Sangiovese (70%) and usually a split of Merlot & Syrah from biodynamically farmed vines in northwestern Tuscany (Lucca). An odd combination that works so well in this instance. Nothing over complicated here in a great way, fresh red sappy cherry fruit, a touch of savory on a medium body frame with some firm and dry tannin. Not to mention that crackling and racy acidity!

Gloomy weather and bucatini all'amatriciana called for a slutty sangiovese and this fit the bill perfectly. Lovely notes of cedar and cherry, fresh acidic structure, JV Chianti this ain't.
