    September 17, 2020 - Giovanni Manetti on Fontodi (Zoom!): Schisty, limestoney soil, giving structure and acidity. Darker colour and softer, richer, less expressive nose than the Lamole. A bit leathery and mentholated. Great depth of dark frutti di bosco-accented fruit. So mouthwatering. Tannins are pretty 'rocky' at the moment - you can enjoy it now, but it benefits a lot from food (in my case, garlic bruschetta).

    September 12, 2020 - Too young. Sharp tannins. Got potential.

    August 28, 2020 - Crunchy red fruits, cherry like acidity, some bite, but already accessible. Drink this before '15, 16...

    August 27, 2020 - Nice deep beautiful red color. 1 hour in the decanter. Nice fruit driven nose, wild cherries, blueberries, pine and leather. Cherry flavors comes bursting out on the palate, then it mellows down. This needs time. For sure great potential but not quite in the sweet spot yet. Anyhow, it’s a very well made CC that I would consider for the cellar

    July 2, 2020 - Litt svovel rett etter åpning, kirsebær og moreller etter litt luft. Fruktig smak av det samme. Frisk litt vandig avslutting med godt tannin-bitt, litt bark. Litt sødmefylt og endimensjonal sammenlignet med 2016. 2 dager i flaske: bedre i dag. Saftig frukt, ferske og faste tanniner. Opp 1 poeng
