    January 13, 2020 - Consistently one of my favorite Chiantis from this so-so vintage. You would never guess this was a super hot vintage based on the focus this wine displays on both nose and palate.

    A little abbreviated on the finish, but other than that, really a pleasure to drink right now.

    September 9, 2019 - Nicely balanced on the palate, and a wine that in my experience consistently delivers. IMO, the best CC of this underperforming vintage.

    August 6, 2019 - Drinking nicely - all tart red fruit and lively acidity, light- to medium-bodied. Given the vintage, this is a very good Chianti.

    July 28, 2018 - Nice acidity and tannins at the end. Earthiness, red dark berries and leather on the palate. Close to the top but glad I still have 5 bottles left in the basement

    October 31, 2017 - Hitting what must be it’s peak now. Starting to turn a little brick at the edges.Delicious tart cherry and Tuscan Earth/dust with still significant tannins. This is why I drink Chianti. 93pts
