1997 Corzano Rosso Toscano

I don't know anything about tasting notes (wish I did) but it was a very enjoyable wine.

It started out surprisingly sweet and smelled very earthy. As time went on, the earthiness turned more to fruit and the sweetness went away. I decanted it maybe 20 minutes before I started drinking. An hour would have been better.

I really like it. Nice Victoria Shiraz and so unlike the Barossa/McLaren Vale type. Well worth the money and I'm curious about the couple of bottles of the big sister (Lady's Lane) I have in the cellar.

I liked it, too. Bought one as a trial, and picked up another 5 afterwards. Very good value. Is your Lady's Lane the 2010? It's still available here, but at $70 I'm hesitant.

I have singles of the 09 and 10. I bought the 09 here at $68 less 15%, but not sure where I got the 2010. It might have been the LCBO.

How was it?


A good but not great showing.

  • 1996 Podere Poggio Scalette Il Carbonaione Alta Valle della Greve IGT - Italy, Tuscany, Alta Valle della Greve IGT (2/1/2014)
    Tasted a bottle from a different source than my last one and this was good. Nose was of dark cherries, blackberry, red currant, cedar, macchiato, baking spices, sweat, and leather. Blind I would have guessed this was within 10 years of vintage. Palate is still youthfully structured with moderate dusty tannins and lots of sour cherry acid on the finish. Palate really feels like biting into a ripe dark cherry. (91 pts.)
At a super bowl party with a generous wino who opened up a vertical of August West Graham Family Vineyard PN. Ed Kurtzman, the winemaker was also there.

Very Nice! Could you share a few comments on any of these? How were the 08's showing?

Have you gotten the purple off of your teeth and tongue yet? Smile

Love WA Syrah!
