    January 1, 2020 - What a great start to the year! This is a fantastic expression of Sangiovese, what strike me is how balanced this wine is. Medium body yielding good mix of fruit, herbs and secondary elements. Tannins have a good grip without being tannic or supple,with just the right amount of acidity to tie everything together.

    October 15, 2019 - Un chianti probablement arrivé à maturité. Les tannins sont soyeux. Le nez tiré sur le chocolat noire et la cerise. La bouche est bien ample et les saveurs tertiaires avec la prune commencent à pointer. Une belle bouteille italienne pour accompagner les pâtes.

    December 25, 2018 - At $30 and change, this is a delightful sharing wine and extraordinary value. Opens quick but continues to develop beautifully even with a simple bottle decant. A great expression of Sangiovese.

    July 29, 2018 - Ruby red color. Cherry, spice and leather on nose. Cherry flavors with some tannins and moderate acidity. Best to decant for a minimum of 90 minutes. Delightful wine.
