    October 8, 2018 - At 14 years old, still opaque black in color with a thin edge of red around the glass rim. Aromatic red and black cherry. The sip is concentrated and somewhat dominated by acid and tannin, though with a rounded edge and no astringency. Very lively, juicy, and refreshing, with surprising integration in the swallow. Excellent with food, aging well, and will get even better with another 4 years of bottle age. Overall, a fine example of what makes Sangiovese from Chianti Classico special, here with a beneficial aging of 18 months in French oak.

    November 2, 2015 - This wine has found a wonderful expression. No formal notes but wonderful balance and nice earthiness 'n fruit are meeting at the right place. No blockbuster, instead a lovely and well-drinking wine.

    April 4, 2012 - Don't know if the fruit is gone & high acidity remains or if this was just an off bottle (VA). Let sit for 1 hour in decanter and did not improve. Dang. Was looking forward to see how this has evolved.

    March 3, 2012 - Après une heure de carafe, avant dégusté ce vin avec une escaloppe de veau ... Couleur très foncée, le nez végétal et empyreumatique, comme chaume et grillé ... De la jambe à profusion et on détecte la réglisse noire à mi-bouche ... Fin de bouche, nous sommes sur la cerise et le chocolat ... La finale est appréciable ... Tout simplement un grand vin !
