A pleasant and well-balanced Sherry. Medium bodied and a touch of sweetness. Perfect for a fall night with roasted chicken. Carly likes. — 19 days ago

Not quite as good as the Gallina 10 Barbera Still needs some time — 3 years ago
Nose is smokey, tarry and reserved initially. Nice spices. Some tea. But seems like it’s about to bust open in 30 minutes or so. Chestnut. Some mid season cherry and minerality develops. It’s getting floral now. Palate is juicy, ripe and dense with great freshness and expressive mineralIty. Concentrated and really complex. Worlds better than the Gallina. Needs maybe one hour open but terrific energy, density and freshness. Long as well. Balanced. Substantial tannins but velvety and just barely sweet. — 3 months ago
2013 Vintage on January 11, 2020 @ Enoteca Sogna.... — 9 months ago
Terrific nose. Floral, tar, roses, mint, tweed jacket, serious cherry, complex, so many different aromas, crazy spice. So good. Licorice. Amazing cherry flower with air. Sick. Palate had an abundance of fruit. Concentrated, sweet and so dense. Pure, clean and so textured. Amazing balance and so well made. Elegant, delicate and so so deep. This is a very good wine with terrific harmony. Shows off why 2016 is as good as it is. Long. Juicy. So so pure.
Update - after 4.5 hours this got that supernal balance very few wines get. 9.4 to 9.5. — 3 months ago
