    January 21, 2022 - Gorgeous. Black cherry, almonds, white flowers; nose caramel toffee warmth with damsons, marzipan. In the mouth, big, expansive Italian sunshine.

    January 6, 2022 - Was worried that I opened this too soon as I’m Poggione tends to come into its own 15+ years from vintage but after a 2 hour slow ox, drinking beautifully. Textbook old school Brunello. Will save my other bottle for a few more years. Highly recommend.

    December 13, 2021 - A bit dry. Fruit came out a bit more day two. Will decant and open for couple hours next round.

    October 24, 2021 - 3 hour decant. Very nice. Fruit seemed a bit behind compared to the acid and tannins. Still in the realm of balanced, but would have scored higher.

    September 1, 2021 - Drinking really well right now. My earlier bottles were much more fruit forward with almost a raisin note. This is now well balanced, good acidity coming, some secondary notes of tobacco peaking beyond the red fruit and sour cherries. Long finish. Great QPR.
