    April 17, 2020 - Bottle has gone bad, very musty and no real flavor.

    January 18, 2020 - Crimson fading to orange-rose at rim. Rim variation consistent with age; excellent clarity. Medium legs. Aromas are sour cherry, cherry, and a hint of cranberry; nothing sweet here. Subtle hints of cedar, toast, cinnamon, eucalyptus. Flavors are similar, with the addition of something new, not unpleasant, but best described as a hint of chalk. Light/medium body, linear texture, medium finish. Balanced, and the subtle aromas/flavors added complexity. At $13 paid in 2013, QPR above average. Will definitely seek out future vintages, and if found at <=$15 it may be time to back up the truck. Drink now or in 2021, pair with food.

    January 2, 2020 - A slightly modified version of the classic Chianti blend; this is a blend of Sangiovese (80%) with Colorino (10%) to add color and Pugnitello (10%) to add structure. Macerated for 8-10 days in stainless steel. Aged for 12 months in large Slavonian oak casks. 13,5% alcohol. Tasted blind.

    Dark yet translucent black cherry color with a youthful ruby overtones and pale brick-red rim. The nose feels cool, savory and somewhat restrained with attractive aromas of fresh red fruits, game, some boysenberry, a little bit of peppery spice, light notes of tomato purée, a hint of sweet red cherry, a floral touch of violets and a whiff of blood. The wine is firm, medium-bodied and textural on the palate with quite extracted and relatively tightly-knit flavors of sour cherries, some wild strawberries, a little bit of ripe cranberry, light sanguine notes of iron, a hint of black tea and a touch of sweet dark fruits. Remarkably structured overall feel with its high acidity and assertive, noticeably grippy tannins - most likely courtesy of Pugnitello. The finish is ripe, somewhat extracted and firmly tannic with firm, dry flavors of sour cherries, some bloody game, a little bit of stony minerality, light cranberry and wild strawberry tones, a hint of licorice and a touch of peppery spice.

    A still remarkably youthful and impressively structured Chianti Classico that shows surprisingly little sense of development or resolution for its age. I guess the combination of 2010 vintage and Pugnitello is what makes this wine feel so much more muscular and structural compared to typical CC wines. I had Italy immediately in my mind when tasting this wine, but my thoughts hovered around Brunello di Montalcino, Sagrantino di Montefalco and Aglianico del Vulture; Chianti Classico was just out of bounds for such a punchy, muscular beast. Wonderful stuff and I have no doubts this wine will only get better if left to age. This is a keeper, not a drinker.

    April 25, 2018 - Bottle last night was popular, so I opened another one. If anything this bottle is a bit better than the one last night. Pretty darn amazing wine for $12. Fleshy, cherry fruit, juicy, but in the mid palate you get a nice bitter astringent note. Nicely cleanses the palate on the finish.

    April 24, 2018 - Solid wine. Good QPR at $12. No need to rush to drink these. Plenty of life left. This has a slightly different taste profile than most Chianti Classico due to the use of 10% Pugnitello instead of Canaiolo. Has excellent grip from the tannins. Red, fleshy fruits. Slight bitterness on the finish.
