What a special treat and amazing birthday gift. I had the incredible opportunity to taste all of these Scotch Whiskey in one night. Less then 50 people in the world have ever tasted the MACPHAIL'S 1949  Thank you @martinobrambilla for this amazing experience. It was a great honour to meet and taste along side Stephen Rankin from @gordonandmacphail

I like my Brunello old. Another great wine this birthday weekend. 1999 Altero Brunello Di Montalcino by Poggio Antico. "The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino Altero is powerful and intense in aroma and flavor, well endowed with liquorice and tar in addition to its plum fruit, sizeable and weighty on the palate and with a chewy texture and important intensity on the close. It will still be drinking well in 2020." #poggioantico #poggioanticowinery #altero #alterobrunellodimontalcino #montalcino #brunellodimontalcino #redwine #italy🇮🇹 #italianwine #tuscanwine #1999 #vintagewine #greatwine #robertparker #wineadvocate #jamessuckling #winecritic #greatwinesofitaly #brunello #wineporn🍷 #oldredwine

What treat to taste these two Super Tuscans side by side. 2015 Sassicaia is Wine Spectator #1 wine in 2018. At first opening and tasting Ornellaia shows a stronger more powerful wine. 30 mins later it starts to shut down and Sassicaia starts to open up. Sassicaia is beautiful wine to drink today. Ornellaia needs 5-10 years to settle down. 
Winemaker Notes 
Sassicaia 2015
#1 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2018

Intense, concentrated and deep ruby-colored, this wine offers elegant, complex aromas of red fruit. In the mouth it is rich and dense, yet harmonious, with sweet, balanced tannins. The wine has a long finish with a depth and structure that ensure its extraordinary longevity.

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc

Another great wine this week. 2006 Capanna Brunello Di Montalcino. 
95pts by @james.suckling "Wonderful aromas of chocolate, crushed berries and raspberries, with vanilla and toasted oak undertones. Full-bodied, with deliciously ripe fruit and loads of berries, chocolate and coffee bean character. Love the length and beauty here. Best after 2013." @james.suckling

In celebration of @_giovannineri_  birthday today we are drinking 2008 Tenuta Nuova by Casanova di Neri. Auguri! 
JS 94pts

jamessuckling.com, February 2013

This is very floral with blackberries on the nose. It's full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a ripe fruit, caramel and berry aftertaste. Delicious for the vintage. One of the wines of the vintage. Better in 2015.

Another great pairing. Double Tomahawk steaks with a beautiful Italian Syrah. 
The 2012 Syrah Il Bosco is gorgeous. A blast of dark cherry and plum hits the palate first. Scents of tobacco, licorice, smoke and leather add shades of aromatic nuance with air. But above all else, the 2012 is a wine of pure, voluptuous fruit. Today, the 2012 is naturally quite primary. Readers who enjoy wines with a bit more aromatic nuance will want to cellar the 2012 for at least a few years. This is an impressive showing. Drinking window: 2017-2024. Score - 93. (Antonio Galloni, vinous.com

I'm getting better at this cooking game and wine pairing. Butternut Squash Ravioli with melted brown butter and sage. Paired beautifully with this 2015 Marsannay by Faiveley.

Another great wine last week at Pappas Steakhouse! 
2009 Cappellano Barolo

Product Description: "The wines of Cappellano (Cappellano Dr. Giuseppe) are like that rare animal you may, or may not see no matter how thoroughly you search the jungle, the prairies or whatever its natural habitat may be. You don’t see bottles of this cult Barolo in the wine shops of Alba and most of the exported production immediately falls into the hands of collectors and die-hard enthusiasts. Thanks to a strict traditionalists’ philosophy, Cappellano’s unique expressions of Barolo are among the most celebrated in the Langhe. The artisanal approach adopted by the late Teobaldo Cappellano embraces elements of the natural wine philosophy within a greater sustainable farming ideology. In keeping with his father’s wishes, Augusto Cappellano does not send samples to wine guides and he asks all of those who tastes his wines to refrain from assigning numerical points." -Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
