    February 21, 2020 - A top quality Tuscan, drinking really well now. Malvasia nera 15%, with the Sangiovese. The cork totally crumbled on extraction but no damage was done to the wine. At its best after two hours air. Dark garnet. A musky, lovely bouquet of dark fruit - some of it preserved - smoke, sottobosco, polished mahogany dresser, tilled soil and a touch of vanillin oak. On palate, well integrated. Juicy fruit with fresh acidity. Blackberries, black plums, barbequed venison, earth, cigar and menthol. Concentrated with plenty of mid palate weight and density. At the moment in great balance between relatively vibrant, primary fruit and some interesting, savoury development. Overall, very well balanced and elegant. A long, mineral finish.

    February 16, 2020 - Drinking very well from my passive cellar after a double decant. In balance, not showing the over the top aspect t I saw in its youth, a great food wine. Dark fruit, full palate, clean and long finish.

    December 27, 2019 - 85% Sangiovese, 15% Malvasia nera. Structure, texture, wonderfully balanced with typical Sangiovese acidity that keeps it all lithe. Here’s the thing~it’s STILL young! I enjoyed it on night one as it grew and developed in the glass—a good wine. But on night two—after argon gas preservative, it was stunning. The coming together of all these ripe, fabulous elements increased the pleasure to exceptional heights. If you only have one, keep it for 3-4 years. If you can’t wait, or want to try one now, uncork in the morning and pour that night. If properly stored it is only beginning what it can be.

    September 22, 2019 - 2 hour decant yields roast meat, leather, tar. Claret-like in style. Very good

    May 18, 2019 - Three hour decant. Opaque purple color. Quite dark, Damp, musty nose. Beautiful dark fruit. Blackberry, black cherry, bold tannins. Very good and getting better.
