    November 10, 2017 - Delicious old Brunello. Tertiary and complex. Drink soon.

    April 13, 2015 - Slightly rusty red here after a little over 13 years in the bottle. I'm sure it's not as dark as it was upon release. On the nose I get a musty closet, mothball smell along with high pitch pine resin, rooty earth and soil, and a touch of clove and leather. The fruit has either boarded the train and left the station or is buried under everything else meaning this is in a very backward stage. I'm thinking the fruit has mostly left the building never to return. Where does it go? The palate is a bit dilute, hard, and angular with a ton of menthol but again almost no fruit. I can appreciate the Mangia for being old world but is just not very friendly. To sum it all up I would describe this as a disjointed lean machine. Drink now through 2018.

    December 25, 2013 - Opened one hour prior to dinner which was rack of lamb. Dark ruby color with strong black fruit coming out along with a licorice with a hint a chocolate on the back side. Very good Brunello happy to have three bottles left

    November 27, 2011 - This wine is in great shape right now. Much better than I expected. The last bottle must have been slightly 'off'. No sign of vegetal notes this time.

    Deep ruby color, with only slight hints of amber at the rim. Full aromas of black fruit some cherry and sweet tobacco, hints of licorice. Full bodied on the palate with mouth coating smooth tannins, balanced acidity and sweet fruit. The finish is long and remains fresh throughout.

    This wine is really singing right now, including the sweetness and smoothness that is so characteristic of aged Brunello. Its getting quite close to the superb '99 of this house right now. But it shows a lot of what the excellent '01 vintage is all about: power & balance. Drink now - 2015.
    (be carefull when pouring this wine, it contains quite a bit of sediment)
