Very close to Nero Mascalese. — 3 months ago
A timeless gem that escapes boundaries. Poised, elegant, unconventional.
The nose is somewhere between a fino sherry, a v. light Vernatsch and southern Rhône white. Nutty, salty with dried strawberries, hibiscus, but also some sharp lemon freshness. A meditation wine - changing, evolving, enticing.
Silky & a bit creamy on the palate, with a touch of tannins, sharp, salty acidity, almost fruitless - and yet with such depth, precision & presence. This is as far from the avg. rosé as it gets. A mind boggling, delicious, slightly funky, grand wine. Amazing.

Great to drink Santa Magdalena again though had hoped for more. Very foresty nose, powerful palate with light flavor intensity (so more power from structure and texture). Fascinating and improved hugely with 2-3 hours air. Probably best with good charcuterie rather than the red meat we fed it. This was a RED wine. — a year ago
One more vernatsch/schiava gentile that i deeply enjoy
Simple, honest, that crisp cherry with a tiny bit of bittterness, smooth tannin, great freshness, mineral mood and a feminine body, very attractive, kind of exotic, but familiar...i can't explain
I am sure this bottle will benefit from a couple of years of rest, you can tell there is a texture that is going to flesh out, to become kind of chewy
I reckon this wine is a real bargain, but you need to like the typology — 2 years ago

Just loved this. Fresh red fruit and floral aromas, and flavors of strawberry, cassis, and spice. A wonderful, warming bottle of wine on a chilly day that paired very well with our spaghetti dinner. 85% Schiava, 15% Lagrein. 4/5/23. — 8 months ago
木苺やラベンダーの花に、山のミネラル感。 — 2 years ago
Light, fine & quite delicate - reminiscent of a Pinot or Südtirol Vernatsch. Fresh Strawberries & raspberries & red currant with a touch of sage & distant basil.
On the palate this is surprisingly light & fine considering the Barrique & Tonneaux aging - the wood showing only in the backdrop, brilliantly integrated. Fresh acidity, dusty ultra fine tannins.
Red fruit again with a mineral, herby aftertaste. This is very nice, esp. slightly chilled. My style of wine. — 2 years ago
