April 25, 2015 - unfortunately something wrong with this Chianti, drinkable but slightly corked
October 5, 2013 - Avec Spaghetti
October 4, 2013 - Excellent avec une lasagne
July 7, 2013 - Très beau vin évolué et raffiné tout en fruit (encore) et sans tannins rugueux.
June 8, 2013 - Secondary flavours are evident. Starting its slow decline, all though this is still drinking well at 12 years. Coffee, leather, root and earth. Round with fine tannin, still sweet with perfumes on the finish. Interesting and relatively smooth. Drink up.
March 2, 2013 - Leather, dark cherry, flowers and porcini mushrooms. Showing it's age with drying tannin on the finish. This was way better a year ago but man is it fading out now, so drink up.
January 1, 2013 - Two last bottles have had a very slight oxidized smell. It might be too late with this wine..
August 11, 2012 - Last bottle starting to feel a bit sleepy, but once aired, it did show off very well. I will leave the remaining bottles though, as I think it will be rewarded in the future.
May 25, 2012 - Dark core lightening at the rim. Decanted about a half hour. Danp Earth, leather, cherry nose with a bramble note. Not showing its age really, a little on the nose. Good balance and finish. Tangy and fresh acidity hold this together well. Persistant and noticable tannin on the finish. Dark cocco, sweet dark cherry after taste. Lots left in the tank here, suprisingly at 11 years old. Ageing like a good brunello. Drink now to 2015.
March 17, 2012 - Consistent with previous note
