A nice ‘blue collar’ Sangiovese. s this winery has a good reputation over the years and does a decent job with this grape. . Still nicely balanced after nine years. went well with barbecued lamb chops and good friends.

90% Sangiovese Grosso & 10% Canaiolo Nero. Had my other bottle too young & was so tight & like a walnut. Today with 8 yrs & a decant it’s really starting to show its stuff: Barolo challenging stuffing, all lithe & sinewy roses & tar, softer, but a keeper for around 26$. What a steal. Just have to be patient.

From the Haro-Lumia Tasters Dozen. This was friggin terrific. Terrific cherry backbone. Woodsy, smoky. A long finish. A huge welcome surprise. Only downside was we were social distancing in 40 degree weather so the bottle got cold in a hurry. A WS Top 100.

Medium ruby red- when opened a bit tannic but still tasted good. After more than an hour it really smoothed out, tannins almost disappeared, slight acidity, some minerality/clay, maybe some leather too. Fruits are cherries & plums.

The bottle we got was corked but this replacement is so worth it. Red fruit, medium body, solid tannins. Are with Japanese Chicken Katsu curry and it was a really nice pair??

Enjoyed on August 18, 2019 as part of an impromptu mini birthday celebration. Paired well with ribeye and NY strip. Decanted for 30 minutes before drinking - believe it needed it. Medium body, nice balance, easy finish, black cherry notes.
