    September 17, 2013 - first of all : this wine should be aged

    morello cherries from a preserving bottle, no amarena cherries at all (this is not sweet)!^^
    good acidity, just right in balance...adstringing, but in an elegant way and pleasing (at least ONE rough edge)!.
    not an oakmonster like lots of other reservas, a bit too well-behaved and slick and very very juicily.
    some herbs and a green thing going on...

    July 4, 2011 - Almost rather classical Chianti. Not too heavy, quite lean, plenty of amarena cherries, not too much oak influence and well proportionated. Unfortunately a bit too astringing. It is a fine wine, but the strong acid attributes are slighty disturbing. I hope, and thing, this isn't a typical 2006 thing. Anyway I have to confess I might 've opened this one a bit too early. Certainly good substance and developing potential.

    March 19, 2010 - Friske kirsebær, deilig sangiovesefrukt. Tydelige tanniner, noe eik. Utpreget matvin, ingen "kose-chianti" dette. Uttørkende i munnen, lang ettersmak som sitter. Vinen sitter fint i hele smakskurven, ingen dødpartier. En flott standardchianti.
