I really like this wine. As for the 2012 Brunello, did you pick up a couple testers for evaluation?


I haven't tasted any 2012 BdM yet, so yes those bottles of Barbi and Frescobaldi will be my testers. That said, I've always found those 2 to be consistently excellent wines. Even though I bought these I still doubt I will buy many 12's. Certainly not the ones which need age and/or have become pricey (Fuligni, Ciacci, Il Poggione, etc...).

And speaking of consistent, yes the Dido is an excellent wine. The 2015 didn't disappoint.

I went with Ultramarine again. $55/bottle is super reasonable. I'm on the fence about '14 Detert East Block.

I looked at the East Block offer but it was pricey to start with, and then there was shipping to NY at $50 for 3 bottles. It worked out to $192 USD/bottle. Factor in CDN exchange and that was a deal breaker for me.
