    February 6, 2011 - A classic chianti with a very slight new world taste. Color was slightly darker than what I expected for a Chianti. Wonderful taste over a 2-3 hour period.

    December 25, 2010 - From magnum. Did not fit the classic sangio profile for me, lower acidity helped this 9 year old still wield a bit of a club, with heavy fruit and a bit of wood. Still a big, wonderful wine served with various Italian appetizers. I would have though it an IGT rather than a DOCG CC, but excellent wine is excellent wine, and there is nothing to complain about here.

    August 8, 2007 - Really a delicious Chianti....modern but not international, this wine clearly hits the classic Sangiovese flavor profile.

    July 9, 2007 - Delicious on day 1....unfortunately I tried to keep the rest 'til the next day and it had lost a lot of steam.

    July 1, 2007 - Nose of plums, blackberries, blueberries, cherry wood, maybe a little sugar cake. Cherry wood flavor with a little dirt and tar. Tannins are still quite prominent. This wine still has quite a bit of life left in it. Matched very well with Bracciole dinner.
