    September 30, 2019 - Decanted an hour. This is still very dark and a bit primary. The nose is blackberries and leather and quite attrractive. The palate on the other hand feels a bit monolithic and chunky lacking integration or class. The fruit has held up well but it’s not integrated with the oak and acid well and it doesn’t feel like this one is going to get better with age.

    August 22, 2019 - Colafarben; etwas Waldbeeren, gepaart mit erdigen und mineralischen Noten, Lakritz und floralen Anklängen; am Gaumen mittlerer Körper, Waldfrucht, gereifter Sangiovese mit langem, aber auch zehrendem Abgang...

    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!
