This wine has a pale ruby hue trending towards garnet with pronounced aromatic intensity of morello cherry, wild strawberry, pomegranate, black licorice, fennel, rose, morel mushroom, nutmeg, star anise, vanilla bean, clove, and tobacco nutmeg notes.
The flavors are consistent with the nose. This wine is dry, with medium(+) acidity and high, chalky tannins, high alcohol, and a long, elegant finish.

Popped and poured. The 2022 “Maté” is 100% Brachetto from a 2-ish acre vineyard in Treiso. The wine pours a striking pale ruby color; almost rosé-like. Medium- viscosity with no staining of the tears. Some slight tartrates on the last glass. On the nose, this is super floral right now with orange blossom, raspberries, alpine herbs and crushed gravel. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium tannin and medium acid. Confirming the notes from the nose and finishes with a mineral and floral driven flourish. A perfect pairing with a warm fall day with a light lunch at Via Farina. Drink now. — 2 months ago
What a nice wine! I love when a reputable producer have a solid B tier wine. Even better when the wine shows the true characters of the grape. This is such a wine. — 6 months ago
Dark and smoky, needed lots and lots of air, but really pleasant once it opened up. Black cherry, mocha, cigar. — 4 years ago
