  • Nice, but not as good as the 2011, which was as good as the 2004, which I really loved.

  • PnP and drank over a couple hours. Drinking better than I hoped but still miles to go. This has wonderful balance with the purest of sangiovese flavors. This is much more interesting and more complex than most Chiantis. Already expansive with weightless power of expression. Young and still a couple ticks away from being really impressive. Just needs time to really rock. Unfortunately, with the price jump I only grabbed one at $50. Not the no brainer value it used to be at $35-$40 but, worth its $50 price tag. I may still grab a couple more to age out. Had a left over glass and 2 hours later, this is better still. Tannins have softened and the wine has fleshed out more. 92+ now.... So, probably a good idea to give this a decant.

  • Translucent ruby. A more serious wine than i anticipated, albeit on a medium-bodied and elegant frame. Decanted and followed for 3 hours, and i do agree with others that this probably needs 3-5 more years to really shine. Quite impressive despite its humbe price tag. Red cherry,spice, leather, dusty and gravelly on the nose. Sharp and pitched on the palate with savoury red fruited notes displying very pure radiant fruit, very classic and traditional sangiovese. Could have fooled me as a brunello

  • Decanted for 3 hours. The nose had some bright cranberries and cinnamon. It's a medium body wine. The palate was round and smooth but it did not have the depth and complexity. I do not think the wine is too young to drink now. It's actually in a good drinking window. 2 hours of decanting is optimal.

  • I keep thinking that it has more growth ahead of it in the bottle! Nice nice, but wait.
