    June 13, 2019 - Drinking great. Rich earth, cherry, plum, herb, hints of tannin in that dolcetto dance of dryness and fruit. Moderately full body, good length and balance. Bottle time is rewarded here. Well done.

    February 18, 2017 - Had over two days, was about the same both days. Blueberries, lingonberries, cherries, dry tannins. Well made but nothing that stands out, boring.

    April 16, 2016 - Soaring acidity, definitely a food wine but unfortunately I drank it by it self. Way too acidic for me right now, hides all the fruit etc. Tonight? 86 p.

    March 2, 2016 - Dark color, palate bright with acidity, deeply fruited. This bottling always has lot of structure for Dolcettto. Very good with a pasta/bolognese sauce with Italian sausage.
    Drink or hold.
