    January 18, 2019 - Not even sure where/when I got this one. Pulled it out tonight to go with some pizza. Very clear, light ruby red. Intoxicating floral nose with licorice, bright fruit, and maybe a bit of leather or bitter chocolate. Lovely in the mouth, relatively light with really nice acidity. Finishes nicely, medium length. Really good effort for this maker.

    December 22, 2018 - Wow! These have been sitting in the cellar quite a few years and I don’t recall when I last tried this one. PNP and just amazing. Fresh and vibrant. Really blew me away.

    May 10, 2018 - Light garnet red. Sweet red berries, roses, cinnamon, and spice on the nose. Spectacular energy and notes of rose petal, mixed red berries, lingonberries, Asian spices, and sweet vanilla. Tons of energy; extremely mild funk/flat note.

    April 6, 2018 - Fruit forward palate, but somewhat restrained on the nose. Dried cherry, cassis. cedar, leather, earth. Good acidity and tannins in a good place now. Lingering dry finish. This wine is affordable as far as Brunellos go, but I would not call it bargain at $30. Better Sangiovese-based wines can be had for much less.
