    January 30, 2014 - Year in and year out Altamura is one of the best Sangiovese producers in CA. The 2008 vintage is no exception. A little pricey, but a fun, flavorful and crowd pleasing wine.

    December 8, 2013 - Decanted for three hours + and was opening nicely. I was not terribly impressed with the first two bottles. This shown nicely.

    October 19, 2013 - Not very genuine. Needs time but it doesn't understand its roots. Ok but.....

    September 21, 2013 - Nice wine. Will benefit from more bottle age; not as much oak or character as 06 vintage.

    July 16, 2013 - Dark, rich and fruit forward. Nicely balanced with medium length finish.
