    December 31, 2019 - Lovely Brunello, perhaps a little over the hill as all the elements are fully integrated but still a nice experience. 90-91 in this night.

    August 17, 2019 - This was full of bright red fruit. The age has taken a toll and perhaps drinking past its prime. I had the 99 two weeks ago and that was outstanding with much more Brunello finesse and tighter structure. This just tasted much more mature as if it was a bottle with 10 more years of age. Furthermore, that tasted like an elegant Brunello. This was like a Barbaresco with age. I suppose that’s what makes it all fun! Lovely wine regardless.

    June 3, 2016 - Aperto e servito dopo solo circa mezz'ora. Naso di notevole intensità solo parzialmente terziario: confettura di prugne, salsa di frutti di bosco, potpourri di viola rosa e lavanda, note tostate di caffè e vaniglia. Sottofondo di spezie e umido di muschio e terra. Al palato tutta imponente, con tannini risolti, nobilitati dall'affinamento e buona acidità a sgrassare una carica alcolica decisamente avvolgente. Finale di bello e persistente. Ancora nella piena maturità; se ben conservato penso possa dare soddisfazioni ancora per vari anni.

    March 28, 2016 - 11th of 12, pnp, perfect cork and level - dark, dense red, little development; black cherry and earth, some spice and nuance for Brunello; fullish, long, nice fruit, used to be a blockbuster but nuance developed 3 or 4 years ago, now quite complex for this type of wine, though underlying vigour beginning to diminish. F (17.5).
