The new vintage does not disappoint. Well, they do, now do they?? Ending Pontoni is a master and this specific wine show his amazing skills and the variety’s true potential. Briadscaled and viscous with tropical notes, serious structure for ageing and bountiful acidity hiding in the background. It is indeed always a true pleasure to taste these rare gems, and while I’ve had better versions (splitting hairs), it’s still bloody impressive and a wine to seek out whatever the cost.

Made in a style of yesterday. Not “bad” in any sense, just dried out fruit, candied berries, lofty oak and tight, yet mellowed tannins. Served blind, I was thinking Barbaresco from La Spinetta. Which I hate... as his was damn close in style all though and all Somms at the table suggested Barolo. Fun experience but .... I don’t get it. — a month ago
Lively, lovely and ripe with candied additions to its pungent stone fruit flavours.served blind, I was 10 years short of correctness. Amazingly vivid. Tasted more like Burgundy than GV. From Magnum. — 3 days ago
