Smells Italian. Impressive but honestly I think it began to break down with air. So would like to open a bottle 4 hours in advance next time and see again. — 3 months ago

Seafood/salmon friendly. A bit more sweet that I’d like but still very good. A compromise to the Occhipinti that we can’t find anywhere. — 2 months ago

The 2021 Alea Rosa shows a bouquet of lemon zest, savory herbs, sour cherries and wet stone. It is soft in texture, yet full of zesty mineral-inspired tension, sour citrus and tropical melon. The 2021 finishes long and perfumed, with a vivid nuance of nectarine that slowly fades. $24.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, August 2022) — a month ago
