Every time I drink one of these bottles I kick myself for not buying more (even though I buy it by the half-case). Basically my favorite Nero d’Avola in the world. With age it shows leather and dried flowers, raisins and dried cherries and wonderful chalky mineralogy. Great acidity and powdery ethereal tannins. — a month ago
Stellar. Many young vintages of this wine show their oak more than this. Sure there’s a coconut whiskey barrel note but more prominently incredibly smooth and supple tannins wrapped around cherry and plum notes with hints of dried herbs and graphite. Stunner. Drink now or hold for three decades or anywhere in between. — 2 months ago
And to those who say that orange wines are devoid of pleasure I say, you probably haven’t had the right ones. But if you just don’t like them, that’s OK, too. I’ll leave you all the beer and single malt scotch, you leave me all the amphora raised Vitovska and Ribolla. — 3 months ago
One of California’s most delicious wines, proving as it ages that it is more than just a pretty thing. Fruit mellowing but still juicy with herbs and floral notes reaching higher more expansive tones. My last bottle but wish I had 12 more. — a month ago
