    September 3, 2021 - Klassischer Bbs wie er sein sollte.
    Jetzt genau im Trinkfenster.

    July 4, 2021 - Decanted 1 glass and tried another PNP - preferred the PNP which was surprising.

    Brick / brown red color. Some sediment. On nose, tart / sour cherry, stewed cherry and tobacco on nose. Palate was fresher than nose suggested - sour/sweet cherry, pine resin, orange rind and tobacco. At peak for my palate. 92+/-

    May 8, 2021 - Wine swap night with Heymamalow. Tasted after >24 hours of air also. Drank in Grassl Cru.
    Appearance is clear, medium intensity, ruby colour with garnet rim. Legs.
    Nose is clean, initially medium intensity then opening up with air in the glass. Aromas of aged leather + meat, earth, roses & tar, dark red cherries. Developing.
    On the palate, dry, high acidity, medium+ alcohol (14.5%), smooth integrated high tannins, full body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavous of sweet dark red cherries, sour red cherries, smooth leather, savoury earth with tea leaves and emerging forest floor, light tar, red licorice, boiled meat. Long finish.
    Very good quality. Just starting to enter into tertiary phase, and just how I like it.
    Soaring aromatics with 24 hours of air, with the wine showcasing lots more savoury earth and leafy forest floor on the palate also.

    May 8, 2021 - Deep ruby color with some bricking towards the rim. Beautifully layered, with notes of spices, menthol, deep dark red berries, tar, cedar wood, some tobacco, some licorice, also crushed violets. Medium-full bodied, structured, with medium-high tannin that is very good quality, medium-high acidity. Long finish with exellent complexity. This is uber-classic, very typical Produttori Montestefano from this cool but very good vintage.
