    April 9, 2020 - Perfect cork. Dark ruby with slight bricking. Decanted 30 minutes and drank over 3 hours. Better than previous bottle only a few months ago. Nose opens with flowers and wood shavings. Midpalate boasts strawberries, pomegranate, and a touch of leather, framed by a sour cherry finish with a bit of oak. More integrated and complex over time. Drink now or over the next 12-18 months with a long-ish decant.

    December 18, 2019 - A relief after several consecutive poor bottles of 8-10 year old Chianti. Sweet and sour cherries, smooth body and finish with no rough edges.

    May 28, 2019 - Very good Barbera! It needs just a bit of air, maybe 30 minutes or so, to open up and then has a deep, rich fruit nose and palate that perfectly accompanies pizza or hearty red sauce. It is slightly spicy with enough acidity to pair well with food.

    April 1, 2019 - Cellared from release. Cork excellent, no staining, 0 to 2 mm seepage. Dark ruby on pour, ruby edges. Perplexing mix of blueberries, raisins and barnyard on the nose, hint of cardamom. Vibrant black cherries on the palette, again with barnyard note (terroir?). Medium tannins, slightly chalky. Well integrated. Medium long finish, ending with oaky note. This may be peaking, but has the acid to go further, and the fruit - but don’t know whether the barnyard May start to dominate. Still have plenty bottles tho - so we will find out.

    February 1, 2019 - Decanted for 1.5 hours. Once it opened up, complex notes of black cherry and burnt caramel.
