March 20, 2016 - Great nose, long finish, paired perfect with a braised pork ragu and truffle polenta. Still has 3-4 more years worth of cellaring.

October 2, 2015 - Bought this in Italy 4 years ago. So glad I saved it! The wine smells like cherry, raisin, and tobacco. The body is full. The wine finishes long. It tastes and bit alcohol/hot at first but gives way to pure cherry and tobacco. The wine looks crimson colored. The legs are slow. There is no sediment in the bottle. The wine is surprisingly smooth to be so bold.

December 6, 2014 - I was fortunate enough to acquire a whole case of this almost a year ago at a wine auction. I first opened a bottle last night and found it is really fantastic with a pleasingly bold nose crossing between pepper and over-ripe plums, falls on the tonque with a really pleasing surprise, and throws back to a great finish! Okay, so I'm pretty nuts about it, now the question I need help in answering: How long will it cellar? I've still got 10 bottles (I foolishly gave one as a gift), and I want to prolong the pleasure as long as possible! How long?1 person found this helpful Comments (1)

November 11, 2014 - This wine is singing right now. Not technically sophisticated I suppose, but this is a beautiful wine, lush and decedent. We were enjoying it too much to analyze the wine, but it is full bodied and fruit forward, like an Italian woman, delicious and yummy, you want to keep going back for another taste.
