Got better the longer it was open and was signing with a wide variety of dishes (black cod & duck). Tart red fruit and spice. Something between Gamay and Frappato. “Treated” my dad to his first taste of Rossese (the wine he always wanted to try on his honeymoon with my mom some 40 years ago and never got to. — a month ago
Licorice, grapefruit, and straight up grass after it’s been mowed (I mean! What else you want me to say)
Velvety mouthfeel, well-balanced, a bit of an astringent quality like celery toward the end note. You know, it’s an interesting wine. There are many things going on.
Maybe it needs to open up a bit? It’s got comlexity in the end note but the front end is falling a bit flat for me. Nice mouthfeel, but where the oomph!

Cherries and bright, purplish red fruit, herbal elixir and white pepper on the nose. Completely transparent, its sweetness paired with a subtly bitter herbal finish, and intense minerality. Beautiful vintage for a beautiful wine. Very much signals its shared identity with Italian Rossese. — a year ago
Very elegant, light and fruity. Reminds mebof Cabernet Franc, but more ripe berries and hint of pepper. — 2 months ago
Ka' Manciné is a tiny estate located on the south eastern slopes in western Liguria, in the Rossese di Dolceacqua DOC, almost on the border of France. Light ruby color, subtle hints of cherry and fig like, earthy and antique. The soft acidity lingers then finishes with a spicy freshness. — 6 months ago
