    October 20, 2020 - A little light - could spend some time time in the cellar.

    July 19, 2020 - Double blind; was in Rousillon or N. Spain. Served under less than ideal temperature conditions, this was at first too cool, then as the temp came in the zone, it showed a bit sappy, the fruits much more dark red than red. It struggled to show structure, elegance, and was instead just full-on drinkable, and perfect for a casual summer dinner. That said, I've little doubt this was anything other than a victim(?) of its circumstance - a hot Denver summer night. Having said all this, now I can lean on the owner of the bottle to open additional bottles in the name of proper research. NR

    June 28, 2020 - The 2004 Produttori Riservas: Asili wins by a nose (Magnum Society, Wellington, New Zealand): Served single blind, confused with the Montefico. I did not find the vegetal earthiness that I expect from a Produttori Ovello. My original pour was from a corked bottle but a later small sample from a clean bottle was very impressive (so it is reviewed accordingly). Ruby and some garnet colour. An attractive spicy red fruited and earthy bouquet. Rich, brambly fruit on palate. Plenty of rich, primary red fruit, red currant and raspberry. Brooding tannins. Well balanced. Excellent length. In its early drinking window. Impressive! My rating 5/7, group rating 3/7.

    March 17, 2020 - decanted one hour, consumed over three. air is your friend; taut, but delicious, savory, mint/cedar, core of redcurrant & plum; long lingering tangy finish; third hour best aromatically.

    December 26, 2019 - Listen, people, don't open this wine right now. it needs time. There are glimpses of beauty and red fruit and floral elements. There is an interesting dark anise, licorice element and it is very regal. It is just very tight and cloaked up right now. Wait. And the wait some more.
