    March 24, 2020 - Young but showing potential... needs another 4-5 years...good aromas of cherry and flowers...elegant in the palate

    March 2, 2020 - I should just buy a case of this wine at this point instead of buying a bottle here and there. I really love this style, it is a dream with red meat, tomato sauce, or honestly just to sip at the kitchen bar and chat with the wife. Super juice.

    February 28, 2020 - Enjoyed this bottle with some Ravioli Lasagna and it was a great pairing.

    Opened and decanted for an hour. Tasted upon open and it was a tad tight but the red fruits came though. Translucent edges with a dark purple core.

    After decanting the wine came together and showed several layers of red fruits, black fruits some cigar box and herbal/mineral finish. This is drinking very well IMO and is a great food wine. Not the best Brunello but for the price this was spot on!

    Respectable but not memorable tonight. Cigar ash dominates over fruit whch I sort of like. I can say that I like but it is .... a little disappointing. This was me was greater young. Perhaps in a weird spot right now.
