    June 9, 2020 - Tasted blind, still full of vigor, red fruits, floral, light bodied and guessed a well made pinot but with some oak. Later more complexity developed and tea leaves, woodiness and some darker fruits..........switched to barbaressco. What a wine! One of the most satisfying and mysterious wine for a long time, Loved it! Bravo Jerry, for picking this up in Italy!

    mistakem identity, see my other note

    January 13, 2007 - Bought at the winery several years ago. Very disappointed..expected much more out of this wine. Tannics were heavy with fruit not coming through. Boring and uneventful.

    December 21, 2005 - we have had many wonderful wines from lungarotti going as far back as the wonderful 1978 vintage. so, it is with regret that i must pan this wine. it appears to be in the same condition as it was upon release, with no noticeable improvement obtained while resting in the cellar. if anything, the fruit is more restrained and is overpowered by lingering wood flavors.
