kobrand selections Italian portfolio

Chiarlo Gavi Piedmonte 2011... not sure if it is the vintage but this wine is much more Torrontes in nature than I remember... usually some good mouthfeel and juice but this was almost floral.. not as much mineral

Tenuta Sette ponti crognolo Toscana IGT 2010  80% Sangiovese... with cab and merlot in equal mix.. lots of tannin and grip... maybe will soften out

Tenuta do Nozzole.. dusty and violets. and tobaccco.. needs food i think

Agricola Pinica Barrua Isola dei Naraghi Sardina IGT 2008  predominately Carignan.. and soft dusty nose, lots of mid palate tannin.. and long finish

Tenute del Cabreo Il Borgo Toscana IGT 2009  beautiful nose of violets and anise.. alush wine that keeps going

Tenute Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montelcino DOCG 2007  lots of midpalate texture... and flavors.. dusty italian nose

Tenuyta Sette Ponti Oreno Toscana IGT 2010 dense color and tannic... made with bordeaux grapes.. can use some time

Tenua San Guido Sassicaia Bolgheri DOCG cedar on the nose, rich and opulent in the mouth... 85% cab and 15% cab franc
