    February 15, 2020 - Dark ruby, almost inky. Nose of black cherry and a plate with excellent fruit intensity of black cherry and with prominent but integrated tannins and acidity to support this. Still primary and very enjoyable.

    December 14, 2019 - A wonderfully classic and plummy Sangiovese with beginning signs of age like balsamic I, prune and leather. If judged on the nose alone it would a clear 91 points for me. The taste good but lacking a little depth and substance compared to the great nose. So 89 it is ��

    September 22, 2019 - solid stone fruit with the finish to carry prune, cherry and hinot of cola that makes it a really nice drinking wine with a few years left.

    March 29, 2019 - A full-body dark wine,not sure if there is enough fruit. Open to dry tannin, with some air, IT's tart,oaky, with some earthy, coffee like aromas.I just feel it somewhat off-balanced.
