    September 20, 2020 - Great Chianti. Smells of spices, including cloves. Aged greatly.

    September 19, 2020 - Drinking beautifully now. Good tannic structure, fresh red fruit up front, earthy mid palate with pleasant long dry finish. Very enjoyable bottle. Would buy more Fontodi.

    September 14, 2020 - From magnum. Lesser of the three magnums opened this evening - but very tasty nicely balanced Chianti drinking at peak. Would not keep much longer.

    July 28, 2020 - Didn't keep notes, and drank over 2 days. Thought it was probably better before, stewed fruit, resolved tannins, a little oxidation. Similar to last taster. Would drink sooner next time.

    May 14, 2020 - Wild flower nose. A bit of stewed fruit but there is some freshness from leafy mint on the finish. On the way down but this would be good with a bowl of pasta.
