    April 12, 2020 - feel that this is well past its prime - dried out - some complexity but with no discernible fruit to balance - not rated

    January 7, 2019 - Possibly the best Brunello I have ever drank. Whoever suggested this wine should be drunk by 2016 misunderstood this wine. This wine has 5-10 years left. However, it is drinking incredible now.. Balanced, great fruit, aromas, silky mouth feel and soooooo much more. The last 5-10 notes all nailed it in describing this wine. Have it, drink it, dont have it, buy it.

    December 7, 2018 - PnP. Color looks youthful. Nose has some slightly sweet fruit, pie crust, very fresh. A swirl brings out some intensity and tobacco. Medium to full in body with dark, stewed fruit at first. Black cherry, red plum. Quite grippy tannins, lots of acid here. Very nice. This has plenty of life left and I'm sure will continue to evolve.

    After a few hours of slow ox more red fruit comes out on the palate. A pleasurable gamey funk on the nose to go along with the fruit. Man, it's so nice when you take a flyer at auction and the bottle turns out like this. Improves over the course of 4 hours being open. Only held back from a more epic rating from me by the finsih with I wish was longer.

    (Gaja Brunello di Montalcino Pieve Santa Restituta Rennina, Tuscany) As if Gaja’s status as the Crown Prince of Barbaresco weren’t enough, he has to do similarly majestic work in Tuscany’s most fabled region. It may be the tannins that set this wine apart—somehow, the notoriously gritty, aspirin-like tannins associated with the Sangiovese Grosso clone become silken here. The midpalate is comprised of powerful, dried sour cherries; green, sweet tobacco; and ripe saddle leather, but the mouthfeel makes this the ideal modern Brunello to drink while the more classic legends from the great 2001 vintage take their time softening up.
