    July 28, 2018 - While this is still years away from its prime, it's drinking quite well right now at this early stage; The nose is slightly muted but does emerge with some air to reveal bright red fruit and floral tones; The palate is very red-fruited, with a lot of elegance despite the warmer vintage; There are some sneaky tannins on the back-end that suggest this will improve with more years in the bottle

    April 9, 2018 - Opened last night. Attractive then, even moreso now. Pretty medium ruby. A few legs, but they are thick. Nose is gorgeous, with pretty red fruit and dusty earth. Even a bit of coffee and mocha. In the mouth, it is filled with yummy fruit. Tannins are soft and chewy. This produces a juicy, mouthwatering sensation that is rich, as well as gentle but firm at the same time. Many years ahead, but quite drinkable even at this relatively young age. 4-13-17-9: 93/100.

    February 22, 2018 - Die Nase ist sehr intensiv floral. Im Mund schon sehr gut, aber nicht unbedingt besser als der Falletto, einfach ein bisschen mehr Körper. // Degustiert bei Bindella 2018

    December 10, 2017 - Showed really nicely after some air. Denser and riper than I was expecting, but the elevated flavors were of rose, strawberry, & earth (so it was nice). Palate had nice structure, too.
