    June 15, 2020 - Opened in advance of a pairing with a Northern Italy milk-braised pork loin dinner. Initially, a light ruby hue with orange highlights, the aromatic nose features black cherry, red alpine currant, and hints of tar and leather. Medium-bodied on the palate, with the aforementioned notes, amidst fine drying tannins. Subsequently double decanted over 4 hours.

    And... this has opened up beautifully! A wonderful pairing with the dinner. Darker in the robe, now medium-bodied, and still featuring black cherry, red alpine currant, leather, light tar and a decidedly orange rind finish. The previous dry tannins now dealt with, this is cooking on all cylinders! Glad to have a bottle or two left.

    May 3, 2020 - My first bottle of this was in December 2017 and my second January 2019. Both bottles were medium bodied and had lots of somewhat powerful dark fruits. They were a bit disjointed, a bit sweet/over-ripe, and had a tiny bit too much oak showing, but they were still very nice. The fruit disappeared after 2 hours. The current bottle has lost quite a bit of the fruit, but has a little left (berries, tar, roses), is light bodied, a bit acidic, and still ok to drink. Not much tannin. Popped and poured, so not sure what would happen with air. Provenance: purchased from merchant in 2017, so who knows how well these were stored the first 10 years.

    April 8, 2020 - Rather dense, with typical Nebiollo bricking. Beautiful smokey, roasted black cherries, are just haunting on the nose. Rather full bodied, similar captivating impression on the palate. Good length. An outstanding representation of the genre at this point in its life. Got 10 years easily, but will not get better. Fantastic value (upon release).

    October 10, 2019 - Deep plum and black cherry notes. Plenty of tannins still underneath. Good wine
