    October 17, 2015 - From double magnum. Feels like it's still on the way up, but probably due to the format. Complex nose, dark fruit, leather, spices, a bit of coffee and orange peel. At that nice point with both emerging maturity and freshness. Good balance and length, still solid structure with slightly drying tannins. Excellent brunello.

    July 21, 2013 - Great wine, at peak right now. Decanted this in order to avoid the slime, which I dumped in the sink. Same as the previous bottles.

    April 20, 2013 - Served with an Italian flavored dish and was remarkable. Wish I had more. Probably wouldn't hold on to it much longer though.

    November 5, 2010 - Another excellent bottle of this wine, although one again there was the stange mucus (quercetin?) in the bottom of the bottle. I was expecting it, so I stood the bottle up for a while before decanting it. The sludge remained in the bottle and I poured it into the sink to look at it and kind of wish I hadn't. It's really pretty nasty. Wine is delicious though. Fully mature now, but in no danger of decline anytime soon.

    March 28, 2008 - Not decanted. Poured into shoulder and allowed to breathe for 2 hours. Consumed over the following 4 hours. Opaque ruby red. Aromas of sottobosco, soy, sandalwood, black cherry, spice, leather, plum. Brooding nose! Medium-full bodied, very firm tannins; gripping. Tastes like it was bottled yesterday! Black plums, sottobosco, spice, licorice, and hints of tar/asphalt on the palate. Moderate finish, ~30s, with dark fruit and spice.

    This is nowhere near ready. Leave it for at least 3-5 years.

    There are other CellarTracker comments about "white sludge" in the bottle. For mine, I had tartrates precipitating out of the wine, and it appears that this wine was rarely (ever?) racked or fined. No big deal. Lots of potential in this wine. Classic Sangiovese. 91+ points.
