    May 4, 2019 - Floral, rose petals. Feminine wine on the nose, quite perfumed and beautiful. Tannins starting to subside enough to drink now; still requires good 1+hr decant. Berries, orange peel, leather, cigar box. Striking, serious, discussion worthy wine. Very enjoyable with pasta, black truffle, homemade Italian sausage at Terroni in Toronto.

    November 25, 2018 - This is not surprisingly a brute of a wine now. Dark fruit, violets, herbs and lots and lots of tar and earth. No mistaking this as anything but quality Nebbiolo. Was reasonably approachable the first day after a quick decant. Day two, the nose is similar but the tannins are overwhelming everything on the palate. Will wait many many years before opening one from my own small stash.

    October 2, 2018 - A lovely bottle that is entering a drinking window from my passive cellar. Light in color, lovely nose of flowers, leather, tar. palate was full but light on its feet with dancing fruits and herb. Excellent with food, excellent alone. I love this producers style.

    May 17, 2018 - Roses and tar, notes of mushroom and game; beautifully poised on palate, elegant development and finish, moderately long lived, tannins are intense but very fine indeed, young and slightly closed, but truly lovely
    Over time nose is quite similar and pleasing, with palate continually developing; better with every hour, and somewhat more integrated; expansive, delightful

    April 13, 2018 - PnP at restaurant. Initially very closed but after an hour the tightness began to unwind. Red fruit and floral that then evolved to more roses. On the palate a firm powerful wine that in the beginning was pure power but the flavours of dark fruit, menthol, pine..balsamic flavours started coming out after a hour or so. It’s got a long life ahead and i would definitely stock up if you can find it.
