    November 30, 2014 - No fruit on nose. Smokey meat and leather. Well balanced with a nice finish that echoes the nose in flavor although with additional hints of dark fruits and plums.

    October 19, 2013 - Drinking up some of the older Brunello's. This one is still solid with great balance.

    November 21, 2008 - Popped and poured at a byob restaurant. Great nose of cherry, leather, tobacco and spice. Flavors similar to the nose, but the finish is rather short and disappointing, really just disappears. Midpalate was a bit thin as well. Not sure if this needed more time to open up, but overall diasappointed for the price.

    March 16, 2008 - Bummer....I held this waiting to share with friends who gave the bottle to us for our anniversary three years ago. Popped to decant three hours before they arrived and that unmistakable smell arose from the decanter as I poured. Corked. Tough to take after holding for a special night.
