Much better than when I had a few years ago - full fruit with a long finish.

I let it breathe for two hours. A bit of funk on the nose but very tasty.

Not great. Not horrible. I didn’t love the nose. Hold your breath and it’s better (maybe 88-89).

Liked but didn’t love. Wanted to. But a little more subdued than I expected.

This continues to be amazing wine. But not at first. This one decanted first 4 hours at least.

Ok. Didn’t love it even after open for 90 minutes. But drinkable. A bit too hot.

This gets better and better. Let it breathe for four to five hours in the cellar. Just amazing.

Still a decent amount of fruit and earthy. The nose suggests it is nearing its end. Still good though.

Don’t know why I waited so long to try wines from Puglia. These are terrific.

Surprised by some of the earlier reviews. Maybe it needed to age further. I found it excellent with a long finish. Fills the mouth. Chewy. Plenty of fruit.

Some funk/floral on the nose. Sweet fruit with a long finish. Not bad but didn’t love.

A bit past its prime. Very earthy and leather on the nose. Scent isn’t great but fhe taste is fine.

Scent of strawberry. But the taste - fruit is subdued initially. A long finish. Liked but didn’t love with my steak. Appreciated it more with some parmigiano reggiano. May need to open up more (only 30 min).

Agree with the previous review - the bouquet isn’t great. But the wine is still good.

Didn’t love this in 2018 - but second bottle this year (2020) is better. The nose is a bit hot. Nice finish.

Clearly well past its prime and perhaps wasn’t stored properly. This was undrinkable.

Stag's is our favorite, and this bottle started out disappointing. We decanted it for 2.5 hours and I'd say it was an 86 at best. It was ok, but the fruit and intensity felt faded. By about 4 hours in though, it was better. If you have any '03s, drink now. But let it breath for a while!
