    March 5, 2020 - Delicious but not stellar. Perhaps it was at the edge of its glory. Had a modest nose of dark fruit. The palate is rich with earth and still good acidity. Not much of any tannins left. Was a pleasure with some Italian cheese and bread.

    February 24, 2020 - This is rounder and more fleshy than the Stella Retica we just had, but while it may not be as focused, I prefer this, as it is more expansive on the palate.

    January 18, 2020 - Sweet/ripe red fruits & menthol on the nose.

    Good acidity and decent persistence on the palate - very likable, if less than stellar. Not the best QPR, but still a good drink on a snowy Saturday. I may have mentioned this in a previous note on an ArPePe wine, but I rarely get the feeling that these wines need a lot more time, in contrast to, say, a 2006 Barolo from someone like Brovia that I'm not even tempted to open at this point.

    July 4, 2019 - Unfortunately, this bottle was tasted right after I had a glass of an excellent 2006 Castell'In Villa CCR, so it's working at a substantial disadvantage.

    An attractive nose with some musky red fruit. Light- to medium-bodied on the palate - this isn't bad by any means, but given the vintage and producer, somewhat underwhelming.

    March 30, 2019 - Definitely interesting well made stuff but I am finding this on the tired side. Translucent brown tinged red. Baked red fruit, brown sugar, dry earth and good acidity. I like it. At $44,do not feel like this bottle was a good value. But I do have several other bottles from this producer and I am excited to see what else is here. I like the over all style.
