Coming from my cellar in Italy
Antonio Pulcini the winemaker is a lovely fellow that lives in a marvellous property on the hills south of Rome.
He found when relatively young bottles made by his dad 30 years earlier still delicious and decided to reproduce them somehow.
It took him a while, but the wines have absolutely no similar examples in the area.
The wine is bright gold with straw shade
When it reaches room temperature gives its best on the nose with mandarin, grapefruit, an array of herbs and flowers. Hay, cheese, wet stones, marzipan and quite an oxidative personality.
The palate is fresh, soft and extremely long.
Probably the vines this wine was made from have been replaced too. Fascinating too say in one word. — 6 days ago
Incredible aromatics and complex flavors on this creative bubbly. Food friendly with flavorful rich stuff like venison-chard lasagne or pulled duck tacos. — a month ago
Peach arome in nose, bright and sweet in mouth so rich finish. — 22 days ago
This is a tough one for me. Not for the faint of heart of unadventurous. Took me a few days to get through the bottle, not because it is a bad wine but because it is so intense it takes a while to make it through your glass. Apricot, extreme tannins, citrus, and VA. I don’t hate it, but if I ever buy again I’ll be splitting the bottle between 3-4 other people. — 3 days ago
