    May 6, 2016 - Pop and pour. At first, tted alone. Then enjoyed with a grilled steak.
    Dark maroon, showing some bricking at the edges. There is an earthy quality, some oxidation, along with dark fruits. Rich in taste with soft tannins. Perhaps a bit past its prime.

    March 20, 2016 - Good match with pizza. This bottle was a bit more rustic and funky than prior bottles. Nose of dried cherry, leather and funk. Palate has medium body with good grip. More funk. Nice persistent finish. Would have preferred this if it was a bit cleaner.

    February 19, 2016 - Perfect bottle. Served blind, it would have taken us to Serralunga, probably a Cappellano 80s/90s. Best mouthfeel after 2h of air.

    November 28, 2015 - Opened one hour before decanting, then served immediately; typical Calabretta color, a bit darker than some other producers; big barnyard nose that gives way to ripe red fruits, mushrooms and other earthy notes; big, mineral, earthy flavor, lovely hints of sweetness; lots of acidity and structure, with the typical Calabretta rustic flavor and mouth feel; decent length. Excellent.
