    September 2, 2013 - seems at its best now, but will probably remain at this level for at least a couple more years.

    April 7, 2013 - this has opened up considerably; still needs air, but very pleasant at the opening.

    November 28, 2012 - still for a caveman (I guess that's me!).

    June 3, 2012 - Holy Moly, this is so old school it's like made by cavemen. This is no-messing around honest-to-goodness the real deal, the way they used to make it (or at least should have): heavy on everything good but the fruit. I applaud the vintners for sticking to principles.

    November 23, 2010 - Excellent traditional Chianti but starts off a little closed since it is still quite young. Aromatics are of crushed sage and rasberries.. Palate starts off tight, but over two day opens to a nicely balanced wild / herbacious rasberry driven wine. Has many years left and may develop further.
