    November 2, 2014 - Brighter red and more transparent than I expected. The nose is subtle with red cherries and raspberries. Very light palatte, more like a European pinot noir than a brunello, or more of a light low-acidity chianti than a brunello. Worth noting, the cork a little dry so this wine may have oxidized more than would be expected for a 2007. 5+12+15+7=89

    August 19, 2014 - I really enjoyed this wine, it had the rich cherry flavor with a touch of cinnamon that I adore in Brunellos ... To be savored, enjoyed...not rushed...it's lovemaking for the palette...So sit back, relax, take your time to savor...Enjoy (:

    May 21, 2014 - Ripe, perhaps flabby red fruit is framed by a perfumed bouquet and new wood aromas. The nose is quite expressive and rich. The body is lacking tannins and vibrancy -- perhaps the sweet, almost overripe fruit here is washed out by the wood. The balance and tension got progressively better with airation. At the moment, the normale is more intricate and playful than the riserva. Should benefit from additional cellaring.

    April 12, 2014 - Tuscany Wine Club (Our apt): This wine was the funkiest of the group to my tastes. Lots of bandaids and mushrooms and soy sauce and whatever else. There's an underlying structure though that keeps it feeling a bit clean and crisp like. I expected this one to polarize some of the people who seemed to be more interested in the fruit, but surprisingly it had more of a cross-appeal. I thought it was one of the more interesting wines and the kindof wine that is neat to drink even without food around.
