    December 20, 2014 - Deep red. Nose of cherry and pepper. Soft, nicely balanced, mellows with a little aeration, perfect compliment with Italian meal. Enjoyed by most of the table. Definitely drinkable now.

    November 9, 2014 - Limpid. Deep red. Scents of cherry jam, bacon fat, sun-roasted herbs, black pepper. Mouth filling and delicious, though not sweet or offering much in the way of bright fruit. On the palate notes of coffee, chocolate and cherry jam mix with the herbs, bacon and pepper. Tannins, some of which I assume come from oak, are prominent but soft and well integrated. Sophisticated, delicious wine. Nothing like a Rosso di Montalicino in its density and sophistication. I don't know about its typicity, but it's really good. Definitely drinkable now. I'm not sure I would hold it because its freshness adds to the enjoyment.

    October 19, 2014 - Nose: menthol, balsamic, damp earth, a little "nebbiolo resemblance", medicinal cherry, basil

    Palate: strawberry, round and sweet fruit, darker than some other RdMs

    September 30, 2014 - Gave it an hour of air in the bottle then drank with Michael White's recipe for pork shoulder ragu over fusili. A spectacular pairing -- the wine is definitely a cut above most Rossos, with rich aromatics and a more lush, complex palate than most I've tried. I agree it doesn't scream "Sangiovese" but it does scream "delicious!"

    August 8, 2014 - Another look at this wine; this is a shade lighter in the glass than the Salicutti; the nose is "broader" and more serious/nuanced, although nothing jumps out as clearly as the red fruits & menthol in the first wine - so in a nutshell, less clarity with this nose, but overall more complexity.

    Less red-fruited on the palate as well, and without that tannic bite. Clearly a well-made wine, but to my palate, less "Sangiovese", if that makes any sense.

    That said, I'm looking forward to pairing these two youngsters with my wife's Quattro Formaggi pizza in about 10 minutes, so we'll see what develops.
