    January 27, 2023 - Decanted for minor sediment, drank over several hours. Red cherry, slightly tart. Tobacco and some plum. Medium body, somewhat ripe and round, but enough varietal character to keep it interesting. Tannins are fully integrated. A more modern styled Chianti, and very tasty, if not exactly terroir driven. Drink now and over the next 5 years.

    December 8, 2022 - Dense and ripe, dark baking spices and smoke from oak still present and not yet resolved. Modern now but can still evolve into something of beauty in 10+ years. Has the concentration for a long life

    November 13, 2022 - We finished most of our two cases of this years ago, long before it entered a nice drinking window. We drank this bottle over a few days. It's in a beautiful stage of development. A beautiful nose, equal parts dark red fruit and tertiary leather, tobacco and mushroom. Dried flowers.

    November 5, 2022 - Ripe and powerful, full of dense black fruit. Galloni says this is 50% new oak and it shows, in addition to the vanilla there's a distinctive glossy sheen. It's sangio so there's still good acidity and this is far from overdone but it doesn't taste very traditional. Delicious but not much of the mushroom/herbal stuff I'd expect in aged Chianti.

    October 2, 2022 - Very youthful looking dark red color. Aromas of dark cherries, graphite, violets, leather and tobacco on the nose. Quite full-bodied palate that shows structured dark fruits, savory tones, medium(+) acidity, fine tannins and a long dusty and floral finish.
