Community Tasting Notes 3

    May 22, 2021 - My last bottle of this was by far the best, and I’m not quite sure why. I let this sit on the counter for a while without opening, and then popped open and leg it sit in a decanter at room temp for an hour. First sniff and taste and I was pleasantly surprised. Smoky, some bramble, rich red and dark berries, tea. Where was this experience in the other 5 bottles?

    December 1, 2020 - QPR isn't great here; a bit shy and one-note, it was hard to tell if this bottle was off or if it needed more air. Will revisit in 6 months and see if it's coming around a bit.

    February 17, 2018 - Benvenuto Brunello 2018, Montalcino centro; 2/16/2018-2/19/2018 (Montalcino): (Benvenuto Brunello, 2018, Montalcino) Another exciting wine, this making it 3/3 for this address, today. The nose is just gorgeous, it sucks you in, entices the senses -immediately and fully. It's got the same lovely color as the Brunello (whereas many Riserva are noticeably darker, especially from this vintage). Very good sense of place and grape; plenty of dusty, mineral-laden soil. There's a lot of fruit here, though the wine is artfully balanced and comes across much lighter in weight notwithstanding an expansive mid-palate. On the last sip, some tangy citrus and red apple notes. A wow wine, for traditionalists, mostly. 14,5% abv. (fully resolved), drink 2019 thru 2038+ highly recommended
