    November 14, 2019 - Medium ruby color with mild bricking
    Medium aromas of red and black fruit with underlying tobacco and earth
    Medium palate which really echoes aromas
    Medium plus fine grained tannins which are quite well integrated
    Medium plus acidity and really nice length
    Only complaint is that ETOH is a little high and seems out of balance
    That being said, this was a really pleasant and well balanced wine which would have been much better with food
    Drinking well now but prob room for more improvement
    Previous tasting revealed some offputting aromas to say the least, but based on today that must have been a corked bottle

    November 13, 2019 - Single blind tasting.
    Dark garnet color.
    Medium aromatics. No oak. Earth, tobacco, leather, dark plum and cherry.
    Medium palate with medium + acidity, medium + tannin and medium + alcohol. Cherry is main feature with no secondary notes.
    Finish is medium with a balanced, well integrated tannin to acidity. A little lacking in the palate regarding fruit and secondary characteristics. Still a nice but not exceptional example of Brunello.

    October 17, 2019 - This continues to be in a good spot for drinking with minimal air. Mildly sweet red fruits, rounded tannins, and a moderate level of acidity (especially for a Brunello) contribute to its approachability and easy pleasure. I don’t see any upside to continuing to cellar this wine, so drink up.

    September 15, 2019 - At 11 years old, it is showing its age a bit on the edges, which is reflected in the well integrated flavors of this medium body BdM. Nicely layered flavors of cola, black cherry and leather with a cigar box finish -- well integrated and drinking well after just 20-30 minutes of air. Good QPR.
