    January 17, 2020 - (Decanted for half an hour before dinner)
    Deep red colour with a brick red hue. Warm red fruit, minerals and chocolate on the broad nose. Nice and balanced palate still showing tannins and primary fruit in a fresh style and with an intense finish. This is still showing very youthful and need decanting to open up.

    January 1, 2020 - Deep dark brooding wine. Dark chewy and bitter berries, earthy on the finish with drying slightly chewy tannins that bring on a bitter chocolate finish. Some licorice, balsamic notes as well.

    November 9, 2019 - Good bottle of Chianti. From magnum. Quite consitent with my notes two years ago.

    October 12, 2019 - Tannins are finally tamed. Still has good fruit and is now developing substantial tertiary flavours. Would drink now.
