    June 6, 2020 - The last bottle. Much better than either of the two preceding ones. Decanted for 2 hours and the wine opened up nicely and expressed the subtle fruit flavors, warm mouth feel and long finish that one expects of wines from this region.

    April 15, 2020 - I agree with the last note posted. This is starting to fade. Glad this is my last bottle. Now it seems pretty extracted and starting to show signs of forest floor and bit a hint of pruney oxidation. The previous bottle of this a year or so ago showed much better. If you have them, it is time to drink them or you may be pouring them down the sink.

    April 8, 2020 - A bit passed peak. But after a couple of hours it seemed to achieve a reasonably nice balance. Lots of sediment. Wish I had decanted.

    February 26, 2020 - Two bottles I’ve opened in the past month have been way past peak. I have two more left and will open them soon in the hope that there is still something left.

    September 24, 2019 - Medium ruby with a garnet edge

    Intense nose of red fruits, stewed strawberries, with flint, charcoal and forest floor. A few minutes of air brings beautiful floral notes.

    Palate is a beautifully balanced Nebbiolo, with rounded red fruits and a slightly earthy quality. Tannins and acid announce their presence immediately, but settle seamlessly. Alcohol nicely integrated as well. This could go several more years, but is drinking beautifully now. Quite a lot of sediment requires a careful decant.
