    July 4, 2020 - Beautiful Tuscan. Will definitely visit this town on our next trip to Italy.

    May 25, 2020 - Ruby color. Cherry, spice, vanilla and earth on expressive nose. Cherry flavors with acidity. Moderate length finish.

    April 26, 2020 - Decanted for 2 hours. Aromas of raspberry, cherry, tar, rose petal and touch of iron. Flavors of cherry, earth, hint of plum, hint of raspberry and sour red fruit. Ends with a long finish of 35-40 seconds with cherry notes. The first few sips it was struggling to find its footage my but once it did it started to drink very nicely.

    April 24, 2020 - Medium dark purple color. Excellent voluptuous Chianti with brambly, rich black fruit, moderate oak and abundant, structured tannins. Just entering its drinking window.
