Consistent with other comments, also very nice bouquet with some barnyard and spices. On the palate it feels round with aromas of cherries and dark berries, lingering finnish.

Stunning bouquet with barnyard and cassis, taste is round and mellow, I would also say that wine is in its peak, but I would not hold it anymore, it is time to drink it. Beatyful wine with a lot of aromas and silky mouthfeel. Taste follows the scent and lingers for a while.

Classy little claret with cassis and ink. Quite a full package, like it should be, firm tannins, long finnish, this would hold longer.

Ready to drink with so silky tannins, very fruity and velvety indeed. At first I did not mind the high alcohol but with second glass it felt a bit tireing.

Light in color but surprisingly structured on palate. Bit one dimensional though, fresh and likeable, good for summer chill out.

Really good despite the high alcohol. Good solid barbera with plenty of fruits and even strawberry flavour. Nice finnish and perfect for a good pizza.

Strong alcohol and big structure. Nice scent and a round palate but bitter though longish finnish. Could have more fruit and balance. It is still on positive but could have more caracter.

Very nice herbal on palate, also mouth filling liquerice in taste. Good acids with longish finish. Cant say so much about scent when my nose is a bit blocked but some nice cherry aromas are there anyway...

This was better before. Disjointed now and tannins are burning but the fruit is gone. This was not a keeper.

Stunning bouquet and rich long taste. Nicely developed, but could hold couple of years more... Not so cherry-like as young chianti, this is more complex and meaty.

Quality pinot. Lots of floral and fruity tones. Good length. The most californian pinot in Europe.

Excellent wine. The scent is suducing, taste lingers on and just everything is in its right place. This is not difficult just pure enjoyment and not too heavy either.

Delicius strong wine. Dark and bold with plenty of fruit. Great boucet and taste lingers on. This is at it's peak now. Structure is like velvet, but there is a twist at the end...

Syrah dominates this thick chewy wine. Shows potential, but not at its best now. Hopefully time will get the wine better balanced.

Rather light little claret. Good acids but not much structure. Good with food, time may do good...

Took long time to open. First impression was that this wine is corked. Good company for meal, but still a bit too earthy and rustic for my taste. For a Rioja mild scent, short after taste, pretty good sructure, but not much fruit left. Not worth 20€.

Nebbiolo from Lombardia. This is not a global wine. Thin and pale color. Leather and red berries, cranberry and moss. Fresh like an autum forest. Quite a long after taste with solid acids.

Good dolcetto, no nonsence. Modern style full bodyed fruit driven with some spices. Needs to be opened couple of hours before drinking.

This wine is getting better. The scent is still mostly full of cassis, but taste is more complex with mushrooms, ink and fruity tones. Finish is very long and this wine could still hold a couple of years and develope. Unfortunately my last.

A really high qpr. As good as a bargain bottle can get. Delicius cherry and firm fruit that hold together with more bitter end. Have to buy more!

I also agree with other writers. Wine is soft and round and it does not have the lenght it used to when young. Good wine but I would prefer more tightness and structure

Not bad, but quite average. Sweet and alcoholic, some apricot flavor, but not enough acids.

Outstanding wine. A great tuscan bouquet, with a long lasting spicy cherry. This is becoming my favorite. Nicely developed wine that pays respect to its origin.

New world blockbuster. Very dark, cannot see through. Cassis and vanilla in unsurprising scent. Thick, sticky and almost chewable at the palate. Wide and long with some needed freshness at the end. Lusty fruit of plum with some pepper. Easy to like or hate.

Very good and surely getting even better. Quite tight but enjoyable cherry and spicy wine with a lovely scent and long finnish. There is plenty of fruit to balance the youthful tightness. I wish I had more.
