    September 18, 2020 - Drinking unbelievably well. Epic nose and palate. Serious velvet texture.

    September 7, 2020 - Very balanced and structured. The wine definitely shed its youth as the (sour) fruits were fading but it took on more earthiness (leather, mushrooms). The full-bodied wine had a great mouthfeel. I think it's at a good place right now.

    August 9, 2020 - This wine is drinking beautifully right now, but could go for years! Fruit tannin is strong. Blackberries and sweet tobacco , its soft and silky.

    August 1, 2020 - Big, ripe, rich. Borderline surmaturité, paired well w red meat sauce.

    July 18, 2020 - I might have thought this was a Barolo on color alone. Drank well with food and on its own. Never reached outstanding for me, but certainly characteristic for the region with a rich, smooth taste and finish.
