    September 4, 2017 - 1ere après 5 ans de cave question de voir sa situation
    Carafé 1h30
    Oeil pourpe au reflet rubis, aucun signe d'évolution
    Nez magnifique sur une trame de jeune fruits noirs, mure, cerise noire, orange sanguine, épices asiatiques, réglisse et boite à cigare... puissant et envoutant, je comprend pourquoi avoir tant aimé la toscane à mes débuts
    La bouche masculine nous sert une vive attaque fruitée et épicée, beaucoup de puissance!
    Le toucher est acide et fait saliver, les tannins sont encore rugueux, voire jeune
    La finale dure éternellement et vous assèche partiellement la bouche, en laissant un arrière goût de fruit noirs, de boite à cigare et d'épices asiatiques
    Très beau, encore jeune

    April 14, 2016 - Nice wine. Medium bodied with prunes, black cherries and blackberries. Good length, finishes with a really dry end with quite grippy tannins. Will last for some time methinks. The acidity is a little on the sharp side, but this works with the dry finish.

    February 22, 2016 - Frescobaldi wines (Wine Depot, Tel-Aviv): dark opaque red-black
    ripe dry cherries aroma with tertiary aromas and leather hints
    fresh firm tannins, tertiary flavours of dark ripe fruits, well balanced & excellent harmony, heavy, rich, powerful, structured, medium complexity, excellent rustic aftertaste, enduring finish.92
