    February 21, 2020 - This felt a bit awkward right out of the bottle but it settled down quickly enough. This is pretty huge on the palate, and almost reminded me of an Amarone in concentration. There's not so much of a fruit profile, but there's plenty complexity and depth. This feels much younger than it is. Pretty serious wine. Might benefit from even more time in bottle.

    May 23, 2017 - Very grippy tannins on open... softened greatly with time to breath...something distinctively Italian here despite the grape....

    look forward to more...

    March 27, 2017 - Definitely a better bottle than my last one. The nose had many herbal, leafy, earthy and mineral elements. Some cherry flavor. Highly complex. Big muscular and rustic tannin. Very solid structure. Very stable and steady performance. It's still drinkable for 1 week with re-cork. Inward and serious style.

    October 16, 2016 - Obvious earthy and spicy on nose. Very approachable now. Quite jammy and fruity cherry taste. It's easy drinking and straight forward. Lack of complexity. Body is stable and solid with rustic muscular tannin to support the structure. Some heat of alcohol. Not as impressive as other reviews.
