    January 1, 2014 - Enjoyable Brunello mature and quite rustique. Soft tannins, a bit thin. Nice but not a wine I will remember as it did not make much of an impression.

    December 14, 2013 - Aroma of charred raw beef, cedar, pumpkin pie spice. Taste of plums poached in wine; dried fig taste at the end that results in a long finish. Let breathe for 45 minutes.

    November 5, 2012 - Drank at wine club with the cheese course. It was paired against a Banfi Brunello di Montalcino 1999. The Fossacolle won by a consensus.

    June 26, 2012 - Soft, delicate texture with a range I flavors pushing through in its prime. Leather, bread, tobacco, chocolate, black cherry and currants, black pepper... such a rich range of tastes and smells but still a tight structure and not overly bold. A great wine. Very compelling.

    April 29, 2012 - Initial opening aromas of anise spice; a lot of fruit; yeasty (like hot cross buns out of the oven); faint double bubble bubble gum. Need to let breathe for at least an hour to let the tannins soften. Well balanced; better with food than alone.
