    September 9, 2014 - Deep and rich. Complex with tart cherry, pipe tobacco, orange peel, flowers and ripe sweet red fruit. Juicy on the finish.

    August 6, 2014 - Decant 3 hours. Great nose of barnyard and secondary fruit. Great finish. One of best brunello's I have had.

    July 8, 2014 - Decanted for 2 hours and was improving but for me this lacked some depth and richness. I think I paired it wrong with a slightly sweet sauce with chicken and I do want to try this again (I have 5 left)

    June 28, 2014 - Decanted through a vinturi, this is a mature wine, fruit on the nose, dark maroon in the glass, the palate is cherry, raspberry, rhubarb, graphite and a touch of spice. A nice finish.

    March 30, 2014 - Enjoyed with some stuffed pork chops and roasted sweet potato/apples. Has the backbone to age several more years with no issue but was quite enjoyable now. Did not decant but did open the bottle approximately 1 hour before pouring. No notes on the scent but I recall it to be cherry and cedar shavings. Cassis, smoke, earth flavor profile. Well structured. Did not disappoint.
