    October 21, 2017 - Raspberry, cherry medium palate. Vinturi only and needed more air time. Took an hour for tannins to settle down. Nice cherry finish.

    September 26, 2017 - Have drunk various I Balzini since 2006 vintage (white, green, black, red labels) and they always need a lot of age. This 2009 is the 2nd bottle I have consumed and it still needs more time. Acids and tannic acids are still strong and in 2019 it will be better. Giving it an 88 assuming it will get better, present rating is more like 85-86. My preferred wines are their white labels (50-50 sangio and cabernet).

    September 12, 2017 - Black pepper, dried cherries, leather, and oak barrel -- tannins are smooth and prominent, once the wine opens up. Seems to have improved since my last bottle.

    June 19, 2017 - Cinnamon, graphite, leather, cherries, and strawberry jam make up the nose. The tannins are medium with oak on the finish.
