    January 4, 2020 - 2nd bottle tasted (last in 3/2018). Decanted for 1 hour and paired with grilled tuna steaks.

    Brick red and throwing some sediment. On nose, sweet cherry, pipe tobacco, black cherry & forest floor. On palate, medium+ body, high acidity, medium tannins and long finish. Cherry, tart cherry, tobacco flavor profile.

    Improved from last tasting. Would prefer a Brunello at this price point (not a rebuy for me) but this is a well made wine. 91+/-

    December 22, 2019 - Good solid chianti classico, has a few good years left. Falls slightly short on the structure which minimizes its mouthfeel.

    December 12, 2019 - very good in its early years but now past its prime, fell at least 7 years short of what its life should have been

    December 12, 2019 - Super beau encore une fois, il commence
    à entrer dans sa fenêtre de buvabilité, pas mal plus
    beau et équilibré que les 2014-2015 en ce moment.
    Beau nez sur les fruits rouges et les épices.
    En bouche, cerises, prunes, tabac et anis avec
    une pointe mentholée. C'est pure et souple, un beau raffinement.
    les tannins sont veloutés et la finale hyper longue est
    sans accroc.
    Quel beau vin, superbe et délicieux.
    NOTES:
    En 2010, Ama n'a pas embouteillé leurs meilleurs crus parcellaires sélectionnés.
    Tous les meilleurs sélections de fruits sont allé dans ce CC!!!
    Pas étonnant que ce 2010 est apparu
    au #6 du TOP 100 du Wine Spectator 2014...dieu merci que
    j'en avait acheté une douzaine!
