Mad love for This wine. Mad love. Great fruit but not too fruity. Balanced by acidity and minerality. What Italian white wines should be. Delicious but also serious. A hint of integrated petrol. Wow. bought from fass selections ... sooo mineral. From a balance and composition standpoint tastes more like 1er cru white burgundy although the flavors are obviously different. — a day ago
@delectable Quarantadue means 42 in Italian. This is the 45 which is quarantacinque. There is another wine called quarantadue 42 but this is not it.
For those of you who are not drinking rattalino you are missing out big time. This is one of the more mammoth wines. Nose is black cherry tar and a hint of rose. Super complex. Palate is just starting to shift from young vibrant fruit to darker fruit with leather. Still has great balance. Long. Grippy. Great structure. A big dense wine but a balanced one. Some rose juice on the finish. Wow. Bought from fass selections. — 8 days ago
Bought this to see what. 97 point wine tastes like ;-). Coiled but balanced. Very bright cherry fruit. Closed on the nose. Needs 3 years or so. Will either be a nice elegant drink or a great one. Hard to tell at this point. ... as this opens it’s getting super pretty. Cherry flowers. ... hints of cherry cough syrup. My gut is that this lacks the density to be truly epic but has the balance to be lovely for a long time. If the aromatics develop I could be convinced otherwise. — 10 days ago
Lemon and minerals on the nose. Very nice. Palate has very nice fruit. Meyer lemons. Balancing minerals. Very fresh acidity. Always one of the great grand cru values. Bought from fass selections ... getting better as it opens. More lemon oil on the nose. Great almost pleasantly tart juiciness. A very very solid wine. Crazy for $50. — 4 days ago
So feminine. Has great complexity. Very elegant hints of tropical fruit. On a line with minerality. Balanced acidity. Long juicy finish. So well made. Such a clean elegant wine. Bought from fass selections. ... as this opens the elegance of this wine is preposterous. Just a beautiful piece of work. The sleekest tropical fruit I’ve ever had. God I love “bad vintages”. Should have bought a case of this. — 6 days ago
Citrus flower on the. Jose. Intense citrus. Such great acidic balance. Wonderful. So clean and fresh. Not a sledgehammer auslese Great because of the balance but not obvious weight. Bought from fass selections ... epic intense juicy tartness as it opens. Wow. — 10 days ago
