    August 15, 2017 - Intertwined, discreet wood, incredibly complex and tall, dark fruit, peppers test, clove, rich, madly long, Such a well-founded wine! Rare to taste. Waw

    August 9, 2017 - Complex interwoven scents and flavours, insanely long, dark fruits, herbs, rich. This is a very complete wine and one of the best I ever drunk (maybe thanks to the great vintage). The wine has such a dazzling quality it is near impossible to tell the variety/appellation (was served blind), as it is that complete.

    August 6, 2017 - very complex nose, spicy with a lovely and discrete expression of the wood, in the mouth also very complex with an extreme long middle part that was full of pure fruit, crazy QPR, 96

    June 4, 2017 - Excellent Brunello. Probably at the end of its drinking window though...

    April 23, 2017 - Wow this is amazing. On open, an intoxicating nose of flowers, bushes, and sweet incense. Fruit a bit muted until the 20 min mark. On med-full bodied palate, currant and blackberries with a floral explosion after you swallow. Great balance of earth and fruit, with enough acidity for food. 30+ sec finish. Drink or hold.
