Love the story: vineyard of the parish priest in Piedmont. Forced to sell by the Catholic Church.
Beautiful note, reminds me a little of Nebbiolo: perfume, recipe red fruit, just wants you to put your nose in the glass. Little heavier on the palate with noticeable acidity and some tannins. — 4 months ago

Excellent nose. Some kirsh and charries. Smoth tanins. — 11 hours ago
Tasted blind alongside another bagged bottle. This is light, thin reddish amber in color. Looks very old. Has a perfumed nose with notes of maraschino cherries, clove, tea, roses, some anise, some cinnamon. Very feminine and high pitched. As old as it looks in the glass, it gains weight with more air - even though we're told it's been in a decanter for 9+ hours already. Great structure and fruit vs acidity balance. Easy to guess as old Italian, but I go back to 60's Monfortino with my guess. The next morning I can still smell and taste this wine. Loved this. — 2 months ago
