    November 21, 2020 - Cherry and tobacco. Tannins are still a little grippy early on. After a few hours in decanter this loosens up a bit. Could use a few more years, but is definitely drinkable if given plenty of air.

    October 17, 2019 - Phenomenal bottle of wine. Started singing its colors around 3 hours after being opened. Medium opaque. As the last person posted, plum and dark cherry. Great chalky texture. One of the better wines of the year.

    February 5, 2018 - Here I found a rich and layered display of ripe plum, crushed strawberry and cherry with sweet spices and minerals wafting up from the glass. It was velvety on the palate, with dark textures coating the senses in fleshy black cherry, violet florals and sweet minerals. The density of the wine was nearly enveloping all of its fine tannin yet became energetic and fresh on the long dark fruited finish. It’s hard not to like the 2012 Capanna Riserva.
