    August 11, 2018 - This was never the most elegant of Chiantis, and while time has softend it some, it is still a structured, heavy wine. Good fruit, both on nose and palate, with dark cherries, blackberries and just a hint of some lighter red fruit as well. Some tobacco, dark chcolate and hints of wood, but good acidity that provides lift and energy. Medium lenght. Good stuff, but I prefer a lighter style.

    November 5, 2016 - Very modern and ripe with lots of dark fruit up front. Good acidity and structure. Still feels quite young. This is a very well made wine and in some ways quite attractive but it lacks charm and personality. Feels like it could be from anywhere.

    May 18, 2016 - Dark red color. Earthy aromas with boysenberry and leather flavors. Quite dry on the finish.

    January 27, 2015 - Improved in the decanter. Drank over 2 hours and the last glass was the best. Dark fruits, briar...tart and tangy.

    Tannins a little high at this point, as in it's dry.
