    April 26, 2016 - This wine took an hour to open and once it did, its initially searing tannins and heavy oak treatment dissolved into the dark blue and red fruits with some vanilla, hard leather, and dried herbs. A lovely wine that had no sediment and still plenty of time ahead of it.

    May 29, 2011 - Lilac and leather. Last wine in an evening with some lovely bottles. Decanted about an hour. Still great acid. Could last another decade. Easily WOTN. Decomposing oak leaves? Something nice in the finish. Rich tannins that still grip me minutes later.

    December 21, 2010 - Dark red color. Slow O'd for 6 h and then double decanted 2 h before tasting. A complex melange of dark cherries, asian spice, leather and earth. Big and masculine on the palate with a good interplay of dark red berries, licorice, mushrooms and earth. Some tannins are still lurking in the background. A big, bold, chewy Brunello. Nice showing and a rather good value for a Riserva.
