    October 11, 2015 - Blood/iron on the nose, cedar and red fruit. A bit dusty, tannin almost resolved, good acidity. Excellent.

    April 29, 2015 - HK Wine Society Tasting & Dinner: Mature Brunello, 1975-1998 (Langham Palace Hotel, Mongkok, Hong Kong): Tasted blind in a line-up of 12. Transparent and very young-looking red cherry colour. Nose of black cherry and oak, quite tight. Palate seemed very slightly corked, very dry, lots of fruit, powerful, muscular and quite heady. The bottle drank over dinner was better, perhaps because of a longer decant.

    April 29, 2015 - HK Wine Society Tasting & Dinner: Mature Brunello, 1975-1998 (Langham Palace Hotel, Mongkok, Hong Kong): Transparent, jeweled, purple-hued crimson watery at the meniscus. Phenolic nose of nail varnish remover, black cherry,cocoa 100% black chocolate, still quite prominent oak. Palate is lovely acidic freshness, elegant and harmonious higher-toned black and red cherry. Very fresh and vivrant. Nicely elegant length and resonance on the finish. Excellent with food - beautiful with the Iberico park chop.

    February 24, 2015 - Stored since release at 55 degrees, humidity controlled.
    Soon after decanted, showed a lovely silky quality with good balance and depth. Tannins evident but smooth. Would not hold a lot longer but now has beautiful, mature fruit. A gorgeous mature brunello. Compared to the 88 Riserva, which I recently had, this is superior, mostly because of the additional fruit.

    June 25, 2013 - Cassis, plum, and leather combine on the nose. On the palate tobacco, cedar and mocha notes accompany the deep fruits. Full bodied with ripe round tannins. Everything is integrated in a mature package that, while not overly complex, is very satisfying.
