    January 20, 2023 - This is my second bottle out of a case and this one is much better than my first one. Lots of dark red fruits, including dark plum, saddle leather, tar, spice, cedar box and fully resolved tannins. It has a medium to long finish.

    January 15, 2023 - Got some leftovers from spouses dinner. This was singing.

    Blackberry, flowers, stewed tomato, herbs and pepper. Long and silky.

    In a great place!

    January 4, 2023 - A bit disappointing. Held it for a nice dinner and it underperformed. Has a funky nose - hard to describe - rather earthy. Color is traditional Brunello. Flavor was OK, but thin with no lingering finish. If you have any in your cellar, it’s not going to get any better.

    December 28, 2022 - I agree with Klang. Underwhelming.

    December 25, 2022 - Considerable bricking, seems fully evolved, probably past its peak for me. Classic mature Sangiovese notes on the nose; the palate is medium bodied and well balanced, with moderate length. The fruit has mainly faded away, leaving autumnal notes. Perfectly pleasant but underwhelming.
