    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.

    July 9, 2019 - Just as good as I remember. This wine really seems to hit its stride about 4 hours after decanting. Before that, it's just very good. But, everything really comes together nicely with a stern decant, so that it hits a high point of fruit, secondary flavors, and great texture (just right tannins and acidity). While it's my last bottle of this 2008, I have several of the 2010 and 2013 vintages, so I'm not entirely despondent. Good price, too, for a BdM of this quality.

    July 6, 2019 - Decent Brunello. Took about an hour or two to open up. Developing some tertiary characteristics.

    February 16, 2019 - Clean, well-made Brunello that drinks very well with minimal air and is priced reasonably. Not a profound wine, but a very good example from a less heralded vintage. Drink or hold up to 5 years.
