    January 24, 2020 - Moderate ruby red. Lots of sediment in the decanter. The nose is of cherries and vanilla. The palate shows cherry flavors. Not very traditional, but elegant and well made.

    December 13, 2019 - Encore costaud et assez musclé.
    Des fruits noirs avec un peu de boisé, anis
    et poivre avec un fond de cèdre.
    Tanins charnus et finale longue avec
    une légère chauffe.
    Bien mais je n'y retoucherais pas avant quelques années.

    April 11, 2019 - Montepulciano Tour; 4/10/2019-4/11/2019: From enomatic machine - a nice pickled action on the nose, soft and silky in the mouth, this has been opened for a while. The staff replaced it immediately, but this wine popped and poured is not showing much-nicely rounded and tannins that needs time for now. More full bodied, this vintage is 100% sangiovese (if memory serves me well previous vintages have had some help from french varieties), from 40y old vines as impressive as everything that comes from Fontodi.

    March 15, 2019 - Were it not for past experiences with Vigna del sorbo, I would have thought this a very nice chianti, with elegance and delicious Sangiovese fruit showing elegance and power equivalent to a good brunello. However, this falls short of the epic heights of the ‘09, ‘10 and the ‘12. Hasn’t got the density, explosive power or intoxicating aroma of these wines so not one to buy by the case. 91

    June 28, 2018 - Young primary cherries with some oak.
    Harsh tannin. Lot of fruit and acidity to balance.
    So with a lot of time this will turn out very good. Nice balanced finish. Hard on you right now though. 92-94p
