Spring 2020. This was the most straightforward of the three Fay wines that we drank in succession, with a plump, chunky character. Overall, compared to ArPepe the Fay wines were closer aromatically to Piemonte Nebbiolo, but with less tannic structure. — 3 months ago
Wet autumn leaves, camphor, Amaro, root beer, licorice, menthol, truffle, dried flowers, tar. The non-fruits alone are incredibly complex. Muddled cherry and red plum. So many woodsy notes on all fronts. The VA was right at my limit, a touch pushy and beginning to muddle character especially with more aeration. — 23 days ago

One of the best red wine I've ever tasted.
Medium-light body, but intense flavours and delicious taste.

What a nose. Also what a color. Watermelon licorice. Stunning cherry perfume. Early to mid season cherries. Amazing finesse and refinement. Gorgeous minerality. Smells like a Chambolle. Woodsy spices. So complex. Palate is energetic and so deep. Really incredible for an “entry level” wine. Even though it’s not priced like that. Stunning pure cherry fruit with a citrusy tang. Superbly elegant and intensely structured with terrific linearity and freshness. Long sappy finish. In need of a few years but the sap and length of the finish make me think this might be a long distance runner. Really long. So so well made. Awesome concentration. Sappy and so dense. Just remarkable. Score may go up with air.
9.3 to 9.4. Gets more integrated and velvety after 3 or 4 hours. Stunning texture and freshness and pure sweet and tart fruit. So velvety. — 5 months ago
