    February 8, 2020 - I just don't see it here, and for the price this is a pass. Clearly well made, and clean, but has a definitive old-school Sicilian approach that one can find in other producers for a lot less money. Soil, bright red fruits, decent acidity, balance and complexity, but falls a little short, relative to some of the offerings from, say, COS.

    November 3, 2019 - J’ai adoré ce vin qui déborde de fruits rouges en bouche. Il est déjà très agréable à boire et même si je suis certain qu’il va évoluer de façon intéressante ( peut être en complexité) il est dans un très bel espace en ce moment. Un vin qui présente beaucoup de matière mais qui est facile a boire. Peut être un peu cher mais procure un beau plaisir.

    February 9, 2019 - Solid deposit in the bottle. The aromas are deep and subdued rather than ethereal and expressive. Earthy and leathery - a distinctly oldschool italian expression. Fairly developed palate with nicely melted tannins, unremarkable alcohol, and limestone-driven acidic freshness. To be frank, we had expected sharper focus, more intensity and length, but the balance is there. Proper food companion. Now and over the next five.
