    April 8, 2017 - Opera Wine 2017 - 100 Great Producers (Verona, Italy): { OperaWine2017, Verona } Have had this many times since release, it's consistent in its inconsistency. Today's bottle is nice, not exciting, not off, just nice, as in casual dinner party nice. These wines can take a long time (i.e. more than 20 years) to fully shake off the wood treatment before the fruit really begins to shine. That said, I'm not sure this one's going to get there as the fruit just seems too much, a bit over-wrought in a way. This could have been so much more. I think the new leadership at Avignonesi is on the right path, and I'm excited for their future.

    August 5, 2016 - Corked! Smelled fine, but fizzy on the tongue and an after taste. Seems to have been exposed to heat.

    May 21, 2016 - Every bit as good as I remembered it. Still going strong.
    Wish I could get more.
    Typical Italian earthiness on nose, but subtle on taste. Good tannic structure.
