    January 16, 2017 - This is a blockbuster waiting to be released. Very concentrated and dark now with clear indication that there is complexity and elegance in the not so soon future. It will develop beautifully over the coming years and can be drunk now although my recommendation is to wait. The normal Brunello gives more right now but will be overtaken by express speed by this exceptional wine.
    The rating will probably be more generous with time.

    November 1, 2016 - Tasted at Matter of Taste...

    WOW! This is a massive, viscous wine of enourmous concentration. Velvety tannnins which coat you palate in a pleasant way. The finish lingers on and on...for minutes.

    This is truly a one of a kind Brunello. Probably the best young Brunello I have ever tasted. This will have a very long life ahead of it. I preferred this over the Madonna delle Grazie. Most at the tasting agreed that this was clearly the wine of the night.

    This will have a very long life ahead of it, but with some air, I think it will become approachable sooner than later, due to the balance of the fine, elegant tannin structure.

    Drink 2020-2040+++

    October 25, 2016 - During a matter of taste event, Brunello Masterclass by Monica Larner. This is a Parker 100 Pointer, so I was interested what was coming... Dark garnet. Nose of dark fruit, rich and ripe already in the nose, rhum pot, chocolate, oak. Ripe and round on the palate too, good acidity and enough structure, gingerbread on the finish. Very well made with a nice front to back feel. Medium-high complexity, low typicity. A person of the trade sitting next to me said that they probably put some Merlot into this "by accident". Honi soit qui mal y pense... Jokes aside, a very modern interpretation of a Brunello. I clearly prefer the Marroneto Madonna delle Grazie side by side.

    October 22, 2016 - A Brunello day (Singapore): Brunello master class. Just as I was getting mentally ready to be satisfied with the consistently high quality of the wines at this tasting but without any particular wine really standing out, this came along and it was truly wow. Slightly sweeter than the Brunellos from the other producers, this came with bright but layered fruit, herbs and earth and great length. Clearly the best wine of the tasting in my eyes and probably the best Brunello I have ever had. Wow!
