Community Tasting Notes 7

  • Tim Heaton Likes this wine:

    June 3, 2020 - I prefer this to the riserva wines - this is 100% Sangiovese, and the riserva has 20% Merlot. This one is a bit more fresh and straightforward than the more candied fruit found in the riserva wine. Avg typicity, finish. Will hold for several more years at this level. recommended

    November 1, 2019 - Decanted for an hour. Some baby fat and burnt caramel. This bottle never came back to the liveliness and freshness of the previous one... :(
