    August 23, 2020 - Really lovely wine. Hits all the right notes for sangiovese with some sour cherry, cedar cigar box, floral notes, a bit of baking spice. Medium+ acid and tannins. Long finish. Really well made and plenty of structure for aging and development.

    August 22, 2020 - Decanted for half an hour, but was nowhere near ready, so after two glasses, returned in the bottle and refrigerated overnight. On day 2 was splendid, with succulent red fruits (predominantly cherries), spices and with that weighty but vibrant palate. Following the winery style - more rounded and structured wines. For me is closer to Bordeaux than CC, next try -2025.

    August 20, 2020 - This is a good example of Chianti wine with a convenience quality/price.
    The color is ruby with a very light nail. In the nose appear with violet scent and little red fruit, in the mouth is mineral ad balsamic.

    August 8, 2020 - PnP, seemed a little subdued, understated - fine but probably should've decanted.
