Drei Dona Tenuta la Palazza – 30/3/2012

Il Tornese  2010
85% chardonnay, 15% riesling, fairly tropical fruit drive, with the chardonnay dominating the peach and apricot notes, full and fruity with generous approachability.

Le Vigne Nuove Sangiovese 2010
Slightly meaty earthy plum aromas, was juicy and plump on the palate with generous tannins and some cassis and liquorice to boot.

Notturno Sangiovese 2010
Showed softer sweeter black fruit, and was a lot more subtle and quiet, but had more oak and tannin elements.

Pruno Sangiovese 2008
Very full and intense, and had very prominent new oak characters overwhelming the plump dark fruit.

Cuvee Palazza Sangiovese 2009
More floral savoury notes, was very inky and focused on the palate, with tight savoury tannins.
