    March 31, 2020 - I’ve read raves about this vintage, and I’m here to say they’re accurate. This wine is stunningly aromatic and savory, with a finish that goes for at least three minutes. Do not want it to end.

    March 22, 2020 - Dekantert og luftet i 2 timer. Veldig mørk rødfarge og overraskende tett. Masse deilige kirsebær med det jordlige Sangiovese-aktige preget. Kalde mineraler og et fint rustikk fatpreg med litt vanilje og krydder i avslutningen som står veldig bra til all kirsebærfrukten. Skikkelig bra balansert med tydelige, men behagelige tørre tanniner, og veldig god leskende friskhet. Virker forsatt noe ung, men topp match til pizza capricciosa!

    March 13, 2020 - Wow - sensational nose for the price. Chocolate, red and black cherries, a little pepper, kirsch, balsamic. Very impressive structure but completely balanced by the vibrant acidity. Rustic, leathery finish. If there is a criticism, it is the somewhat aggressive alcohol on the finish but great with food. Bought this as a weeknight pizza wine but much better than that.

    March 6, 2020 - Kjøttmoreller veldig fylde, marsipan, frisk og flott fast avslutning som etter lenge. Fantastisk vin med tanke på pris.

    March 3, 2020 - Leur petit Chianti, une valeur sure.
    Pas le plus complexe mais c'est simple et bien fait.
    Nez sur les fruits et les épices.
    En bouche, belle acidité et cerises surettes.
    Pas long en finale et un brin dilué.
    Parfait pour la pizza et le petit plat de pâtes.
