    November 1, 2021 - Took too much to drink upon opening last night at 7:30. Was decanted and aerated, sat an hour and was full of bitterness and cork and wasn’t not pleasant. But the next evening at 4:00pm after leaving out in the decanter yet covered lightly with plastic, wow. Blended balanced juicy wine that has tannins for fat and remarkable flavor. Super.

    October 29, 2021 - Popped, breathed in bottle 90 minutes, consumed over next two hours. Drinking really well, delicious, but still very young, nowhere near peak, decades of evolution remain.

    October 23, 2021 - Slow oxed for 8 hours then into a decanter. First glass shows a very dark wine and the nose was screaming cherries. Forest floor, hay and maybe some violets. In a great spot as it’s soft in the mouth but not flabby and enough tannins to frame it perfectly. After all the reviews of so many flawed bottles I was worried but not this one. Great spot tonight.

    October 1, 2021 - Decanted for six hours, in which time the wine went from unpleasantly astringent to richly textured, becoming a really beautiful Brunello. Give it a lot of time to breathe.

    October 1, 2021 - Beautiful. Needed a decant to bring the fruit to its best.
