    July 18, 2020 - love this. lots of anise/dark chocolate and dark red fruit. perfume is seductive. with the filet mignon, egglant parm and caprese salad, this was sublime. still had plenty of fruit, punch of nerve and acidity, and with food more dark chocolate and dark berries with a hint of anise with solid acidity and very mellow but pleasantly perceptible tannins. couldnt ask for a better pairing and after 19 years, this is in a great great spot for drinking.

    July 4, 2020 - Decanted 4 hours and drank over a couple of hours, which helped. Still not my favorite, as a bit unsettled and not as smooth as I expected. Nice crimson color, less pleasant nose, but rich fruit made it interesting.

    May 1, 2020 - Balance/balance/balance. Youthful, aged, powerful, airy, easy to drink, classic, classy, long, tannic and smooth. Great wine. Last bottle found in my cellar. Based on this bottle, it could have aged easily for another 15-20 years in a cold cellar. So happy to have the 2010 in my cellar. Will have to wait before opening them.

    January 25, 2020 - Opened and decanted for 3-4 hours and the aromas and complex flavors are amazing.

    Very fine sediment.

    (Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino) Black red color; tight but intriguing oak nose; very tight, reticent, cherry and dried cherry palate, should age well; medium-plus finish 90+ pts.
