    June 6, 2021 - Dried and fresh red fruit with baking spice, cocoa, coffee, basil, dried violets, olive, wood, and dry earth. Med+ fine tannin, Med+ acidity, high alcohol. Elegant and well balanced wine. Drinking well now.

    April 5, 2021 - Marasca, viola, ribes, echi tostati, caffè e cioccolato, intenso e fragrante ma fine e molto preciso. Al palato non presenta asperità, setoso e armonico, con tannini nobili la giusta freschezza ed una lunghezza davvero rimarchevole. Penso che continuerà a regalare gioia ancora per più di un lustro.

    March 28, 2021 - Seems to be in prime. Smooth sinewy black fruit w currant and just hint of strawberry. Some olives in background to keep it interesting.

    January 12, 2021 - Easy drinking smooth BdM. Great acidity left combined with red cherries, leather and meaty notes, and lovely earthiness. Well balanced and just very enjoyable

    October 24, 2020 - Very funky nose of mushroom, damp earth, warn leather, so much that I thought this might have been slightly corked, but the palate didn't suffer the same fate. Decanted for 1 hour, which was just right as PnP palate was a bit tart and closed.
    Smacks your palate with red licorice, dark cherries, black plum, and LOTS of backing spices. Great depth and long, spicy finish. Full-bodied, with medium tannins, medium+ acidity will allow this to age for another 5 years easily, although I really like where this is at right now. If the nose was more precise, it would rate even higher.
