    October 24, 2021 - Amazing depth compared to most Brunellos I have had. Notes of pepper, raspberry, blackberry with great concentration. Long finish, with superb mouth feel. Very unusual, in my experience, for a Brunello.

    August 29, 2021 - Fruit is fading, giving way to lovely notes of tobacco, leather, dried herbs and porcini.
    Slightly drying finish prevents this wine from gaining an excellent score.

    August 14, 2021 - Medium garnet, and fading edges. Toasty, cloves, caramel, and cherry, as well as fairly heightened tannins though rather soft. Fair length, tannin driven finish

    May 3, 2021 - Drank absolutely perfect. So much depth, but not sure if it has the legs for much more time. Delicate.

    December 25, 2020 - was a little scared thinking I held this too long. rusty edged purple...30 mins of air the fruit comes back strong....cherry, dusty tannins, spice, tar...long finish. Like most brunello...scorched earthiness and not overly complex....really good.
