    September 14, 2019 - Decanted
    Tasted right away and drank over an hour or so.
    Colour-Ruby/Brick a little thin
    Nose-vanilla and spice with a bit of cherry. Not much fruit left.
    Mouthfeel is quite thin but the tannins feel great. Tastes of nutmeg and leather, cinnamon and black pepper.
    A unique wine.
    Very enjoyable.

    Bright dark cherry with leather and earthy notes. Polished, in a good way.
    Really good

    March 14, 2019 - In better shape than my last bottle 1 year ago. Dark cherry, vanilla, mushroom, dusty brick color - classical aged brunello. Would have liked a little bit more structure. Changes a lot over an hour in the glass, and a really interesting wine clearly showing its age. No idea where this is going. Could be completely undrinkable in 1 year or keep evolving into new interesting experiences.

    December 16, 2018 - Opened and poured with no prior decanting. Drinking very nicely now. A lovely Brunello.
