Surprisingly closed & in-aromatic. 3 different glasses and only some shy dusty cherry comes across.
Balanced & juicy on the palate, with racy cherry acidity and good depth. Good tannic presence, nice depth,
This is a very nice wine, yet - overall - I expected more — 2 days ago
On the btl, they say it’s the bees knees.
Well, Vespolina it tis’ and I may agree.
N: Liquorice, Rosemary, tar,that nose might lead you to think you’ve got a heavyweight. But no.
P: Big black cherries and that distinctly Italian acid lift. Slightly tannic, volcanic earth. Fun stuff at 13° — 9 months ago

Quite a complex nose after the initial (strong) reduction blows away - red berry compote, damson plum, some rose hip, a bit of nutmeg, some sweet incense, a bit of tar. But there’s also an incredibly uplifting fresh note - mint, Mandarine peel.
Richness, finesse, sappy freshness.
On the palate this is quite light with finely polished, dusty tannins, fresh red berry acidity and overall great purity. Plus a bit of rusty, bloody minerality in the background and a cranberry infused savoury finish.
Balanced and with good length and incredibly food friendly! A really nice one from Alto Piemonte. — 12 days ago
Scents of lemon custard pie when it was first poured and that shifted to sea water and then to more of a green dulse or Kombu smell after just a few minutes in the glass!
I love the taste of this Piedmont white. Soft on the palette with a wonderful maturity that includes light tannins and a freshly acidic after taste- what balance! Would love to try a few bottles of this every year to see what it has to offer with even more age.

Some pine. Floral. Lovely.
Palate is a bit tannic. Lovely cherry fruit. Juicy. As it opens a hint of balsamic. Not a good sign.
As it airs tanins become more pronounced. Which is odd. Still a fun drink.
This may be mildly corked. God hates us all. My guess in 5 years will be very good. Or not.
Very good. — 2 years ago
