    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.

    May 11, 2019 - 1 hour decant. Fine sediment, tannins still grippy. Hold for a few more years. So good, will get even better.

    January 23, 2019 - Powerful, intense, truffles and chocolate. Spicy and peppery. Quite good, but wouldn't pay silly money for this. I just don't get it. It's evidently serious and ambitious - but boring.

    December 25, 2018 - Christmas lunch and Bonaroti in Vienna Virginia. This is our 'go to' Italian and have never had a bad meal yet. Today it was Veal Chop. The Fontadi was far and away one of the best Tuscan wines I have ever had. It was not over the top California style like some Super Tuscans. Balanced, complex, integrated tannins. Incredible and will seek out more. Sorry not more notes but fantastic wine. Silky smooth palette and much more. Oldworldwines note describes it best but so many others make equally salient points.

    June 19, 2018 - A bit too strong and heavy for me. The quality is good but alcohol level too high and it feels a bit overly extracted and a bit 'burnt'...
