September 22, 2013 - Disagreement between my wife and I on this one. She enjoyed it very much. I thought the nose was good; but I felt the wine was not very integrated; perhaps past it's prime.

April 15, 2013 - Quite ok. Typical sangiovese. After drinking the 2008 I expected a bit more from a wine, which was cellaring for 8 years more.

March 29, 2013 - Only had 1 glass but very good balance with sour black cherry ,black current flavor profile. Tannin still there but mellowed nicely. Would drink now or hold 3 to 5yrs

October 27, 2012 - A fine example of mature Bolgheri wine; intense, slightly spicy fruit, with blackcurrant and a touch of vanilla; quite thick textured, still lively and with good length.

(Le Serre Nuove (Bolgheri)) Another youthful, purple-tinged hue. Dark, intense fruit on the nose, alongside some animalistic, almost burnt aromas. There is a similar character on the palate, which has ripe fruit and a full, ripe structure, with a grippy, tannic backbone. It has quite a rustic feel, not seen in any of the other wines here. Needs 3-5 years for further integration.
