Yet another Italian producer of natural wine knocking it out of the park. A polite kind of funk, smoke, resinous, dried apricots, loaminess, with a floral tinged finish that lingers pleasantly — 5 years ago
Quite fruity and full bodied. Well made however not typical Chianti. — 6 years ago

Weekend is on early this week
Got delivered a 6 pack split between 2017 and 2016 yesterday
This '17 is delicious!!
It reminds me a lot of a sangiovese from Radda or Castelnuovo Berardenga or even a northern brunello. Vibrant, mineral, but supported by strong shoulders that you can't notice much at this stage. Neat and precise are the violet,tobacco and licorice.
Spices, leather and cola. The fruit is between a blood orange and a raspberry. I dare to say it recalls a Soldera's Brunello. Long, young and enjoyable from now and many years ahead. — 2 years ago
Probably the most balanced Chianti Classico I have had in 2 years. It started off quite tart with sour cherries, but after an hour of rest... It has a mouthfeel of a Brunello. Pairing with chicken marsala, caprese salad, pesto... Complementing all! Need to get more of this. Super nice!

Color of burgundy. Nose is interesting with dark fruits, oak, cured meat, and indeed some ripe fruits. Taste shoes polished tannins, tobacco leaves, spice, cherry jam, coffee note. While you feel she is quite light, she does have many flavors, even some sweet lichee note. Aftertaste is medium short with some bittersweet note and warmth. On her peak, enjoy now. — 4 years ago
Thick deep color like blood. Violet and tobacco scent. Balanced tannins-- smoooooooth. — 5 years ago
Fruity nose, blackberry and peppery. I have a special fondness having been at the vineyard and castelnuevo de berardenga which is just the epitome of Tuscany. — 6 years ago
