    January 15, 2022 - Still young! Needed a 2 hour decant before opening up. A beautiful Brunello, with typical characteristics. I think this can go for another 10 years no problem. But, it's still elegant after a decant if you open now!

    January 9, 2022 - Pnp table side at restaurant. Muted and a little asleep upon opening. Unfolded into nice mature brunello. Dark red fruits, earth n spice. Soft tannins but still held up well with Italian cuisine at 2 hours. Evolved into a wonder representation of an an aged brunello. One more still in cellar for another experience.

    November 17, 2021 - Dried red/black cherry and strawberry fruit. Notes of stewed tomatoes, tobacco, leather, and spice. Good acidity, long finish. Nice wine right now but no rush.

    November 13, 2021 - Ripe berries, earthy and minerally, with good length and a silky texture. Ready now, but should hold up well for a few more years.
