    February 10, 2020 - Violets, red & black fruits, with more dark fruits and red fruits coming through. Very primary.
    Palate- ditto for the palate with medium acid & medium tannins with a fruity finish. Very nice, but needs a few years to reach potential.

    January 24, 2020 - 93. Started out thinking it might be corked, consistent with previous experiences, but within about 3 hours opened to notes of eucalyptus, pine and musk (I know, weird) but seductive. Palate had a sweet core of red fruit with a dry finish. Give er a few more years.

    December 22, 2019 - Always one of my favorite Tuscans. Opened and let breath in the cellar for two and a half hours. A beautiful, complex wine. Served to an eclectic gathering of neighbors with Porchetta from Italy. Wow, a perfect pairing.

    May 13, 2019 - This really needs 4 hours in the decanter.
    At that point it was showing well but reslly needs a few years in the cellar.
