Valentine wine numero due, alongside brasato al barolo — 6 years ago
A Ripasso that has acquired more Amarone character than most. Nose has spiced fruitcake and some spirity port-like rich fruit. Instantly mouthfilling, but with lots of structural scaffolding. Only quibble is a bit of heat shows through at the end, but with something like a rich brasato that shouldn't be noticeable and may even be a plus. — 4 years ago

Cherry stem, unsweetened cocoa, and woodsy bark on the nose. And a lot of heat. Oh, and heat on the palate. These later vintages are pushing 15% and they don't hide it. This tastes like a big Syrah that's done a lot of cardio: less flabby, sloppy jam; less skin and bark; less hyper sweet, high sugar, high ABV notes on the nose and palate. But keeps the structure, jab and hook. Less "let's have a pizza with this in my sunny Tuscan garden", and more "brasato in the Italian Alps in early fall". — 2 years ago
Bold, dry and totally badass. Had with brasato on cold winters day for Christmas dinner. ❤️ Had same bottle 2011 just before. Both super dry but really good with flavorful dinner. — 4 years ago
