    January 3, 2021 - PnD let air for 3hrs.

    Consistent with previous notes. Lots of BLIC. Can taste the international notes from the international varietals but still real and Tuscan. So good. Delicious and case worthy.

    January 2, 2021 - Sangiovese rond, gourmand, équilibré.
    Rien n'accroche, ça se boit bien mais un peu bonbon.

    December 6, 2020 - Decanted 1 hour, 2 would have been better. Beautiful nose with tart cherry, red fruits, slight oak, tobacco, earthy, leather and spice. 10% Cabernet. Similar flavors with a rustic edge. Medium finish with good balance and medium tannin. A great food wine.

    October 22, 2020 - Opened two hours before consuming. A deep/dark wine. Enjoyable, but I am not sure this one has fully come together. I am going to let it sit for a while before opening the next bottle.

    October 17, 2020 - PnD let air for 4hrs.

    Great fruit and savoury notes. Lingering blackberry and licorice finish. Lots of life ahead. Not as good as the 2015 but still case worthy.
