    April 28, 2019 - This wine started the night poorly, thin, light and a bit sour. After a good 60-90 minutes throughout dinner it started to open and transformed into a true brunello, rich and complex with a long finish. Give it some time to decant, this wine will not disappoint.

    April 25, 2019 - Opened for CT15. Congrats to Eric and the team for all the success and thanks for all you've done for me and the community.
    This wine still has some good dark fruit, old world minerality, and a decent and pleasurable bite. Quite dry.
    Paired with leftover sweet and sour chicken from local chinese shack, plus Suite: Judy Blue Eyes, while trying to unwind from a bit of a tough day. But - is it really that bad? No, no it's not.
    Cheers!

    December 23, 2018 - Vastly underrated by earlier reviewers, this Sangiovese is drinking very nicely. Tannins and acid have all resolved leaving a lovey example of this great vintage. Drink now or hold for a couple more years.

    January 27, 2018 - Ganske mørk og tett, liten utvikling å spore. La ligge inntil 5 år til.

    October 29, 2017 - I thought it was a little harsh. Okay with food (lasagna). May smooth out over a few more years.
