    August 19, 2016 - Rich nose straight out of bottle, not muted. Dark fruit profile, with hints of dried figs, leather and tar.
    Taste is medium+ bodied, high acidity. Loads och cherrie and red berries as well, some oak but all-in-all rather well integrated. The tannins are abundant, and can be a bit drying if you enjoy this wine on it´s own. Better with food in my opinion!

    April 11, 2015 - This Brunello had really developed well since last time I tasted it about three years ago. Now all the pieces are coming together. Drinking very well right now but I will keep the last two bottles in the cellar for a bit longer.

    August 1, 2014 - Deep and dense. Good plum, chocolate and pepper nose that follows through to palate. Lovely structure — drunk from opening, but a decant wouldn't have hurt. Maybe a little overpriced (CHF70), but very decent. ****
