Recent 07 and 08 Italians

Presented by Bella Vino Wine Market, Indian Rocks Beach, Florida.

2006 Nozzole CCR
Lots of minerality, slate. Very dusty mature fruit. Light palate. C.

2008 Sette Ponti Crognolo
Big floral nose of roses and sugar cane. Medium balance. Dried cherries. Short length. Likely way to young. Nose seems to portend a better presentation in a few years. B with potential.

2004 Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montalcino
Dusty, musty attic nose. Fresh fruit with lots of skins. Black cherries and an off-putting green stems note on finish. C.

2008 Tenuta san Guido "Guidoalberto"
Nose of sweet blueberries. Candied fruits and blueberry palate. Maraschino cherries. Tannins not connected to rest of wine, still disintegrated. A- with potential.

2007 Tenuta san Guido "Sassacaia"
A wine I have yet to understand or perhaps appreciate. Tastes like your basic drinkable chianti. Nice semi-sweet, semi-tart cherries. Average length. Average depth. Not overly interesting. Must have a distinct following to command $200 a bottle. I have never drunk any truly aged bottles so maybe I am just misinformed. ??
