Pretty similar colour to the Bartolo , medium deep garnet core , slightly less terracotta at the rim. Porcini mushrooms , sous bois , dried meat , really quite complex. On the palate more mineral , but with a strong meaty , porcini mushroom note , then with blueberry , blackberry . Very fine but present tannins , lovely balanced acidity . Long and really refined . With time in the glass shows well , but will improve over the next 5 -8 years and continue on a further 10 at least — 19 days ago

The oldest wine I've had. Cloudy appearance but still holding up though likely on its last legs. Still a classy drop. Cherries and oak. — a month ago
Pale garnet color.
Aromas of red cherry, tar, cedar greenery.
Dry. Flavors of red cherry, tar, floral, orange zest. Firm tannins are lower than expected, but balanced. Great acidity.
Finish: 4/5 — 13 days ago

So big. Bomb of a wine. And delicious. Brings the heat at 16%. — 2 months ago
Medium light ruby wide watery garnet rim . Ripe strawberry, cherry fruit , touch floral , dried herbs , touch of dried spices, but elegant and quite reserved . On the palate slightly darker sweet fruit , liquorice undertones , good balance with a mineral saline tinge on the decent length finish . Ripe fine tannins and balanced acidity , surprising freshness , balanced alcohol . Elegant and understated , quite light in style , really enjoyable now. Won’t be a long lived wine I suspect , so enjoy now and over the next 5-8 years . — 9 days ago
