    September 30, 2021 - This seems to have closed down since the last one that I tried. Nose is illusive, tannins are a little drying. Nice acidity. This needs to sleep now 3 or 4 years.

    September 25, 2021 - 4th Saturday Brown Bagger (M&R's): Blind. Garnet color. Aromas of candied dark fruit, cinnamon and sawdust. Medium tannin. Flavors of sweet dark fruit, berries and spice. Finishes with good length. Guessed GSM. What a surprise when this was unveiled as our sangiovese.

    This had been double decanted off its sediment an hour before the flight was poured. An enjoyable, if atypical, Chianti.

    August 3, 2021 - Bien meilleure que la dernière bouteille il y a 1 an.
    Un peu de petits fruits noirs au nez avec pas mal de tabac.
    En bouche le vin a beaucoup évolué sur 3 heures de carafe.
    Acidité moy, longueur moy, tanins moy, un peu de cerises, du tabac, un peu d'épices.
    Cette bouteille m'a rendu davantage curieux pour les prochaines...
