    January 18, 2020 - Very nice today - I get some bottle variation as a general rule with Calabretta's wines, but this is a pretty clean bottle. Just the faintest whiff of brett on the nose.

    A light-bodied red, good acidity and persistence. This will work on a snowy Saturday.

    June 1, 2019 - nose of nebbiolo tannins of a great pinot noir vintage. could hold for quite some time

    March 30, 2019 - This bottle has a touch of bretty funk, although not enough that I find it a detriment.

    Fully open on the palate, good supporting acidity, tart red fruits - this is quite pleasant on a warm Spring Saturday afternoon.

    June 16, 2018 - Same score and similar notes from my last bottle two years ago, with perhaps a bit more forest aromas and a longer finish than I remember - although the finish is still powerfully infused with bittersweet cherry and minerals. Even if the wine is showing a bit more age than before, it clearly has many fine years ahead of it. Subtle, silky, complex, great structure - Outstanding.

    October 14, 2017 - drinking beautifully pop n' pour. Served a couple of bottles to a group of non-geeks and they drank it down quickly.
