    January 29, 2021 - My last bottle. Consistent profile to prior years, just a bit softer with the added age. A very good producer with age-worthy wines at a reasonable price point.

    August 30, 2020 - Dark red fruit, spice and tobacco flavors. Beautiful with red meat sauce. Sadly, last bottle.

    April 28, 2020 - One of the best Chiantis I have had. Full bodied, lovely mouthfeel, some syrah-like elements. Outstanding wine. Amazing qpr.

    April 23, 2020 - Brick orange at the rim in the glass with violet and dusty red fruit and sweet Sangiovese leather in the nose. Soft on the palate with nicely dried fruit flavors and a remembrance of cleansing tannins along with a complementary acid component culminating in a tail of Tuscan earthiness and dried cherry on the finish. These wines, especially given the price point, are remarkable in their longevity and consistency. This is our oldest vintage and as usual, not disappointing. Who says senior citizens have nothing to contribute.
