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. — 3 days ago
This wine has a yellow-green tint and a nose that is a bit closed, or maybe subtle is a better word. Very light citrus notes give way to a mix of cantaloupe and honeydew. The palate is anything but subtle. Big toasted almond flavor elbows past Meyer lemon and tangerine to lead the way. The acidity is fantastic - just enough but not too much. The finish wraps up the sip with a beautiful salinity. Blazič, by the way, is just across Italy’s border with Slovenia. The Malvasia came from their vineyard in Collio. The more of Collio I taste, the more I love that region. — a month 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. — 7 hours ago

A highly unusual white from Emilia. Hints of dill, very grapey — 19 days ago
Peach arome in nose, bright and sweet in mouth so rich finish. — 19 days ago
Slightly fizzy and sweet but quite light. Not what I was expecting but once I got used to the sweetness it is surprising refreshing. — a month ago
