    January 9, 2020 - Ripe red fruits on the nose.

    This is lighter-bodied and slightly attenuated on the palate, but otherwise drinking well at 20 years of age. Off this bottle, probably at peak or perhaps slightly on the downside, but still capable of putting a smile on your face over the next five years, especially so when you consider what you paid for it!

    November 2, 2019 - Just on the other side of peak...dried cherries, cedar, and balsamic tones. More of a fireside wine now for a cold evening. DRINK

    June 1, 2018 - Translucent ruby in the glass; primarily red fruits on the nose.

    Sweet & sour red fruits on the palate, decent acidity for lift, nice persistence. Fully mature at this point.

    This is a wine for folks who say Brunello is too expensive - I bought two cases on release that I've been working my way through, and it's a solidly-made wine. It won't wow you, but it doesn't disappoint either, and in most vintages it will be available for $30-35 a bottle, so good QPR from an area not exactly renowned for that.

    November 19, 2017 - Earthy notes and cherry fruit on the nose.

    Sweet/ripe red fruits on the palate, with adequate acidity. This is my 3rd bottle in the last couple months, and I would say the wine is fully mature at this point and would probably drink similarly for the next 3-5 years. When you think about the price that the Caparzo Normale gets in the market, the fact that it produces an honest Brunello capable of 20 years evolution is pretty good QPR.

    October 7, 2017 - Light translucent ruby in the glass; earthy red fruits on the nose, with a menthol back note.

    Seamless on the palate, with red fruits supported by adequate acidity. My 2nd bottle in a couple weeks - this is drinking well right now.
