    December 28, 2019 - Recommend PnP. Probably at peak. Better than 2 years ago. Fruit has now completely integrated leaving a nice nose of forest leaves, oak, currants. Palate is medium to full bodied, firm and complex, with some drying tannins. Very little sediment.

    July 7, 2019 - Drinking perfectly - soft but engaging, pure aged Sangiovese at its best. Wonderful balance, long finish. No one flavor overrides the next.

    June 15, 2019 - Prior bottle was almost a year ago and this bottle showed noticeably better (in line with some of my prior bottles), showing me that the showing from July 2018 was most likely negative bottle variation. Black cherry, earth spices and hints of red cherry on the nose. A touch over medium bodied with black cherry and black raspberry upfront that were both silky and elegant. Mid-body showed both better depth and better integration. Backside continues to show blackberry, tart black cherry and some tart red cherry. Finish shows balanced spices, earth leather and mineral notes. Overall, the wine felt integrated with the fruit fully expressed and nicely backed with structural and contrasting notes. Taking this bottle as a better example of where this wine is today, it feels like it still has a few years left at this peak level.

    June 10, 2019 - The wine has definitely matured in the past 4 1/2 years since I tried a bottle. Opened 3 hours before dinner then poured through a vintorio. The nose is all fruit. The palate was dark cherries, red plums, leather and just a tinge of spice. The finish was moderate in length and smooth.
