    July 18, 2016 - Not as enthused as others. Very soft nose, a little wood on the mid-palate, dark fruits but not terribly distinguished but with a lingering finish.

    October 24, 2015 - As nice and profound as said in earlier tasting notes. This is a full throttle yet still balanced wine with exuberant fruit. But rest assure it also has a close to stern structure and texture, which certainly adds to the overall experience. Tannins are vocal but balanced. Still, this effort needs some more time to fully integrate. This is true also for the acidity and oak. A lovely wine.

    September 7, 2015 - Blackberry, strawbrry and plum nose that carries through into even more dark fruits on the palate. Well integrated and balanced acidity,fruit and tannins. Soft in the mouth with moderate to lengthy finish. Sangiovese at its ultimate depth

    July 6, 2015 - As lovely as described in earlier tasting notes. The cult level effort "Il Carbonaione" delivers the same amazing experience tonight as during past tastings. This is a full throttle wine with massive fruit, but it also has a super structure and texture to die for. Tannins are present but balanced, albeit not integrated which is also true for the acidity and oak. A true masterpiece.
