    January 17, 2020 - By the bottle at Monarch in Montreal. It will reward some time to breathe in the decanter, so give it 30 minutes or so. Nose is very fruity and concentrated with cedar, leather, dried strawberries and sage. Palate is a bit harsh and spicy but is almost balanced by the concentrated dark fruits (plums and black cherries). There is also a strong note of red and black licorice. The tannins and acid are well-integrated but it still feels a bit out of balance somehow. Not bad, but perhaps not quite great.

    January 30, 2017 - Dégusté peu de temps après une autre cuvée du même producteur, le Nerobaronj, même millésime, même cépage, Nero d'Avola. Des similarités mais des points distinctifs.
    Le coté métalique est absent pour laisser beaucoup plus de place aux fruits noirs frais (et non cuit comme son grand frère). Encore de la jeunesse avec l'aport d'une mince acicité. Les tanins sont souples et discrets Pas de sucrosité excessive mais beaucoup de matière. Somme toute différent et légèrement supérieur à notre avis au Nerobaronj pour la moitié du prix !

    September 22, 2016 - A bit too lush and sweet. Not much holding this wine together.

    June 8, 2016 - In a good place right now. Earthy yet still rich, coffee, plums, some violets, fruits fresh and forward, well integrated tannins, good length. Watch out for the sediment though. 89-90 p
