    October 10, 2021 - Performed best during the second evening and shows more fruit than the 2012.

    August 14, 2021 - Tasted during a wine tasting I hosted at my home.
    medium-deep ruby colored with garnet reflexes / nose: intense, dark cherry, black tea, hay, menthol / palate: medium+ acidity, high tannins, excellent length, black tea, herbs, wood / glass I used: Zalto Universal / overall: An excellent Chianti Classico at the beginning of its drinking window. This wine has a huge potential. I will open the next bottle at the earliest in two years. 9/10 (special plus for length and intensity)

    July 25, 2021 - This was really first rate with our fancy Pizzaolo pizzas and salad for our anniversary. It's perhaps a little modern, or maybe it was a warmer site, because it was a little rounder than most of the Tuscan wine I drink, but it wasn't Parkerized or dumbed down in any way. Darker cherries, with still enough acid to keep it fresh, a little leafiness, and a medium body. While it was fine with the pies, it would also marry well with a pasta with a meaty, gamy ragu, or a bistecca. Can hold up to tomato sauces and tomato-based condiments, so a good one for primi and secondi.

    July 18, 2021 - Decanted. Note at one hour point. Burnt hot pungent fruit. Acid, very pure red fruits, old world flavors, lingering aged fruit finish. Needs time to develop. (91-92). ADDENDUM: Decanted back into bottle after 90 minutes. Drank several hours later. The nose really developed, really nice. Very tight, needs time, but promising. (93-94)

    May 9, 2021 - not as enjoyable as a bottle I had a year ago. This seemed closed and lacked vibrancy or fruit
