    June 9, 2021 - This wine like many other vintages gets a few extra style points than it deserves, from the reviewers, but still nonetheless a respectable and delicious Burgundian style chard that drinks in the low 90’s.

    March 6, 2021 - Definitely the winemakign has evolved here away from the heavy oak of the past and this is a really good result as the wine ( The Burgundy Grand Cru of Italy as they like to say) is now showing a lot more character while young and fresh and is not just the wall of fat oak of the past vintages we detested. Very charming and frankly delicious. Maybe is touch of the local grechetto that adds a bit more dimension but frankly we think is the reduction of new oak and the (finally) move away from making a modern American chardonnay. 92 and with lots of potential

    November 7, 2020 - Popped and poured and enjoyed over 2 hours
    Really nice
    It has the richness of fruit and tropical notes on both nose and palate of a Kistler Chard (which I like) but with less oak and so less cloying and much easier to enjoy
    No real heat and decent finish

    October 2, 2020 - Opulent wine with flowers, citrus and spices, strong backbone by bitters. A really good wine, worth its price which also covers the name Antinori. and in my opinion one of the best price/quality wines from Antinori. This is in contrast to my note in 2019. A great pleasure to drink!
