    April 20, 2019 - Dark purple. At first opening there were some rough elements to this, but on the second day it was much softer and better balanced. The nose bursts with juniper berry, anise, tomato leaf, and an intense irony minerality. Dark slightly unripe plum and red cherry dominate the fruit. In the mouth this is full bodied, with a linear mineral driven acidity. Lots of rustic tannin, acid, and a great bouquet. Loads of character. Still drinking well, with good life in front of it. What a bargain. There's a slight bitterness here, with the harsh acidity taking the front stage. Otherwise very enjoyable.

    March 19, 2019 - Mineral driven. Black cherry and super fine tannins. Flowery forest. I suspect it can get better but it is a great bargain now.

    August 9, 2018 - Night two notes. Dark purple color. Nose of dark fruits. Very pleasing, big, balanced flavors of black fruits, black cherry, leather, cranberries and chalk. Long finish. Feel like I was drinking a Brunello. What a bargain this was.

    October 23, 2017 - Great fruit on the palette with soft tannins and a lingering finish. Just what a Chianti Classico should be. Only got better with a little time in the glass.

    January 8, 2017 - This is nice and dry and earthy. A great value. I poured a little extra for myself and slighted the other Sunday Dinner Guests because I liked it more than they did. I gave them more carrots to balance the justice.
