    May 27, 2018 - Soft tannins, fruit holding up well, balanced acidity Lovely

    April 14, 2018 - Académie des Cinquante Tuscany Tasting (Buitenplaats Amerongen / Restaurant Bentinck, Amerongen, NL): Evolved colour, oxidative style. Second bottle fresher but also with evolved flavours, fully mature but sustained by its lively acidity and tannic structure, not as big as its 14.5% ABV would suggest. Has the alcohol caused a lack of balance?

    November 25, 2016 - It opened after some air and went well with tenderloin and christmas lunch.
    My last bottle showed some future - tannin should be softer still.

    October 6, 2016 - Pop and pour. Still pink rim color.
    There is no sediment in the bottle.
    fading aftertaste. No tannin. Good at 86.
    Day two 82.
    Drink now.

    July 9, 2016 - Solid though showing its age a touch. Woody finish as the fruit fades.
