    October 11, 2014 - Dark red in color. Nose of dried cherry, anise, a little vanilla. Great palate of red fruit, with Pencil lead, leather and Hint of chocolate. Very enjoyable.

    August 11, 2014 - Very dense colour; super dense nose, dark olive and brooding dark cherry fruits, gamey and complex. Very impressive and seductive; gorgeous palate, so impressive, this is really special. Mocha tinged finish. Very long.

    March 20, 2014 - Old barbera stocks from Berri near La Morra. Aged 12 months in slovenian cask. 6 months in bottle. Ruby red. Red berries on nose. Taste of raspberry, strawberry. Liqourice. There is a hint of oak with wood and vanilla aromas. Personally i dislike oak but this was not overwhelming. Good structure and acid. Good consentration. Overall a good wine to recommend. I think this wine will profit from a fem more years cellaring to integrate the oak. Next try is in 3-4 years
