    August 21, 2019 - dark tea colour, old blood - garnet. nose: flowers - violets, roses; fruit - cherries, black cherries, diamond plums, pencil box. Quite sharp but noe bad. taste: ripe tannins; high acidity; medium body, fruit - cherries, black cherries, billberries; some spices. Rather instense, still young; thick, long, cranberry finish.

    July 8, 2019 - Drinking nicely, and becoming more approachable. This wine is super food friendly with its commanding acidity. Drank alongside a '13 bv tapestry, which narrowly edged this out. Both are great expressions of their varietals for the price point ($30-40).

    March 24, 2019 - From 375ml. Supple Barolo, drinking quite nicely already. Hits the tar, violet and earth notes...

    January 27, 2019 - Toscana veterans reunion: pale ruby
    med- aromas intensity of dry plums and cherries;
    developing
    dry, med+macidity, med+ tannins, high a.b.v., med+ body; med+ length finish, med flavours intensity consistent with the nose - but stronger than the nose. lack complexity and fruitiness
    can drink now - suitable for further ageing.
