Brett’s. Very good but really needs time to move towards greatness.

My second of four bottles purchased (so far). The first bottle was overrun by brett and smelled like a stockyard. This bottle, however, was amazing and wild AF. Popped and poured, aromas of orange rind, grapefruit, pineapple (fight me), dark fruits, teriyaki...I mean...seriously? Finish has this immediate savory thing going on. And it all works folks. Enjoyed over three hours and it just got better and better. Killer vintage for San Valentino.

Very impressed with this wine, especially for the price (of Paolo Bea). Unrelentless aromas of dark fruit wafting on the nose with a palette to match. Enough tannins to structure well.

Plum, cherry, prosciutto, and eucalyptus with wild and gripping tannins. So complex and expressive and beautiful. An awesome, more subtle wine to his Pagliaro.

Sangiovese meets the barnyard. Cherries, hints of black fruit, notes of cloves. What a find
