    February 15, 2020 - Agree with weezie. Maybe in a transitional phase.

    February 8, 2020 - Marking as flawed, but I’m not positive that’s the issue. Could just be bottle variation. Very inconsistent from start to finish. Initial sip was wound up with serious structure and tannin, then after 30 minute decant seemed to unwind and show the smooth elegant character I’ve come to expect. Then, 20 minutes later the acid and alcohol content started to overwhelm everything else. There was a period it was downright unpleasant and I wasn’t sure if it was the wine or just a reaction to pairing with a rich, highly seasoned grilled ribeye (but this has paired exceptionally with ribeye in the past...and it is a Brunello after all!). Then, it seemed to soften and approach the original smooth, structured, complex Brunello I was hoping for. But it never got there. Definitely a bummer.

    January 19, 2020 - Didn't feel as mind-bending as other bottles I've had but still stellar. This had a deep, powerful dark fruit profile with a lot of marzipan and cedar. Very brooding - I felt the need to decant.

    January 7, 2020 - Very good Brunello. Nice body and complexity. It appears that I enjoy this particular wine on the younger side.
