Light bodied, slightly dry and moderate tannins. Easy drinking. Opened it up an hour before eating a porterhouse steak, but could have opened it 10-15 minutes before. Dark berries, little bit of tar, dried cherries. — 16 days ago
Very interesting and also part of a Zoom virtual wine dinner with Count Manfredo — a month ago
A bit of volatile at first
Great intensity on the nose, but with layers of elegance. The fruit is red and tiny adorned by balsamic, forest floor, leather,truffle, white pepper, coriander and more, but all whispered in turns
The palate is even better: silky, vertical, filling though and absolutely never-ending.
It makes me think of what they say of Romanee-Conti that overpowers any other wine flavour without being powerful.
An experience!! At peak too i reckon.

This wine - Raiante is the correct spelling - colors up a medium-pale yellow with green highlights. The nose is earthy and mineral-driven, with mango, guava, apricot and citrus aromas. The palate offers salinity and stone fruit, along with a decent acidity that refreshes. The citrus flavor that plays through the strongest is lime. This is a really great wine for crab cakes or shrimp dishes. — a month ago
Pretty special. Blackberries. I read that it is past it’s prime at this point, but there’s still plenty of nose left. Decanted for a couple of hours. — 19 days ago
