    October 4, 2022 - Tight and reserved at first. Really needs 4-5+ hours to open and then is spectacular.

    September 16, 2022 - Opened at Bottega for anniversary dinner. 1 hour decant. Not the best Flaccianello but solid. Much better with food.

    August 22, 2022 - pristine condition bottle/cork. drank with 2-3 hours of air.

    obviously quality juice but nothing really jumps out aside from that. not speaking to me.

    intense and delicious, but a tame expression of sangiovese. lacks sangio funk and much beyond classy fruit/melded oak.

    moderate development throughout=cloudy bricking and some oxidation on the palate. youthful intensity still abounds=not pleasant on pnp.

    still full of ripe fruit and ...raisins. acid and balance are there, though.

    enough sediment to be a pain. was decanted for sediment but it's possible that I should have left this upright longer.

    my first bottle of this and I don't drink a ton of Sangio=for what it's worth

    July 20, 2022 - very solid. probably drink now as not a huge amount of depth beyond what would be expected. will last, likely not much better over time.
