    October 17, 2020 - Best plain CC I have ever drunk. And I have drunk many. Giovanni Manetti has really stepped up with this one. If CC has to cost over €20, you better buy this one.

    October 3, 2020 - Nice Chianti, deep rich red notes, no brick, not age marks.
    Delicious herbal notes on the nose and palate. Slight refreshing fruit, not a fruit bomb not dominated by fruit. Delicious minerality and slight soil notes, well rounded and balanced wine.

    September 23, 2020 - Deep dark reddish-purple in color. Full, forward & fragrant nose of ripe fruit aromas of cherries, blackberries & plums with overtones of earthy/dusty & floral notes, dried herbs, minerals, some spice, anise notes & a hint of cedar in the background. Medium-full bodied with a very good concentration of well balanced & smooth textured, dense, ripe fruit flavors of cherries, blackberries & plums with spices, minerals, earthy, cocoa & a hint of oak/vanilla. Lingering finish. Drinks quite well with decanting & extended airing but has the potential (& need) for additional aging to develop further. Should rate even higher with time (92+).
