    May 3, 2014 - Opened up nicely with decanting. Cherry, leather, nice long finish.

    December 15, 2013 - Scratch the 88 - after 30 minutes open, more black fruit is peeking out. Folks, this is some serious wine for the price. Why didn't I buy more... Subdued gamey, black fruit nose. Black cherry is on the front of the palate, blackberry, black currant and vanilla on the mid-palate moving towards dark chocolate with an herbal medium length finish that includes a touch of spearmint. The mouth-feel is a bit watery, but is very soft. Medium acidity with medium high tannins. This is not a fruity wine, but for those who appreciate complexity... for $10/btl this is your value wine. I am wrestling with the idea of whether I have tasted a better $10 bottle of wine... Italy comes through again! This reinforces my previous impressions - Italy continues to provide the biggest surprises in fine wine value in the world! OK, IMHO...

    April 23, 2013 - International style. Open knit, moderately ripe, heavily extracted with oak for tannic support. Comparable to a mid tier Napa, but much better priced. Blackberry nose with slight spice from the oak and fairly rich mid palate. Shortish finish due to lack of acidity, but not bad. I don't think there will be much left to this wine once the fruit fades, so drink up now.

    December 12, 2012 - Very, very dark cherry red in color. Hints of leather, mint and dark cocoa on the nose. Some green plum on palate. Smooth, nice balance but relatively light and fairly short finish. Spousal unit gives it a 91, I'd put it at 89 so we've settled on 90.
