December 24, 2019 - Still very youthfull. Black cherries, red plums, spices. Complex and balanced wine with soft tanins rich extract.
November 24, 2019 - What a nice wine. Magnum bottle. Decanted for 1 hour. Can use more air as it opend nicely during 3 hour drinking. Powerful nose. Lots of fruit, cherries, spice. Medium finish. Will improve with more bottle time.
September 2, 2019 - Decanted and hour. Round and smooth with chalky firm tannin. Excellent acidity giving this a fresh finish. Ripe red cherry, raspberry, earth, rosemary and sandalwood notes. Lovely balance and so drinkable. Loads of fruit. Structured giving this longevity. Just keeps getting better. Drink now-2025.
July 19, 2019 - Nice wine, clearly sangiovese but you can sense the other indigenous varieties "behind the curtain" adding a twist of spices and complexity - and clearly a different profile from the popular formula of sangiovese beefed up with some cabernet and / or merlot. So, very interesting to taste. Solid 90, verging on 91. In the drinking window, but still feels youthfull, so can still go a couple of years
May 2, 2019 - Super tight on opening, after being decanted for a couple of hours this started to open up and drank nicely. This has quite a few years ahead of it.
April 3, 2019 - Aged beautifully.
January 19, 2019 - Drinking beautifully. Lovely depth of fruit and density. Drink now or hold for up to 5 years.
November 11, 2018 - Very nice chianti, my first bottle. Drinking well now, but this also should keep for several more years at least. The drinking window here might be a bit conservative. Loads of sour cherry fruit, good acidity, and food friendly. Tannins are still noticeable, but not too aggressive. I suspect that this will continue to improve with more time, but is certainly accessible now. Good value at the $25 I paid.
September 7, 2018 - Very good combination of GS Chianti elegance and power. Needed close to two hours of decanting to open up more fully.
September 6, 2018 - Ich mag diesen Wein wirklich sehr. Ein kräuterwürziger Tropfen. Genügend Säure. Genügend Tanin. Etwas Leder. Brombeeren, Johannisbeeren. Über mehrere Tage getrunken. Wurde jeden Tag besser. Jeden Cent Wert.
