Takes 30 minutes and then wowza yowza. Nose is stunning. Sappy and pure. Red cherries, hint of caramel, dust, sawdust. Wild mint. Old tea. Stunning. Palate has laser like focus. Great freshness and acidity and early to mid season cherries and decaying leaves. Elegant and perfectly balanced. Long finish and velvety, sweet and almost resolved tannins. Great energy and presence. Lovely hit of opulence in the mid. Tannins are sweet and silky but gain more substance with air. Got decades left — a month ago

Bramaterra! Resurrected subregion up north produces a delicate, fine Nebbiolo blended with some native grapes. Underripe strawberry, brine, and bright acid. Floral and light bodied. Tannins stick around. Cool!! — 24 days ago
2022/5/7 with roast pork with rosemary, garlic and mostarda di Cremona, fresh favas and pecorino, etc. Lots of lovely red fruit jumps out on the nose, followed by some woodsier, earthier notes. Juicy fruit and acidity balances subtle but firm tannins. The last glass is even better, with a fosses effusion of pungent, spicy berries and subtle floral notes. — 2 months ago
Has a really marvelous feral element on the nose. Tar, tobacco, leather and the smells of not only herbs but dark, sweet and sour fruits; tamarind, stewed italian plums, molasses. On the palate is juicy black and red fruit, candied black raspberries. This is all carried in a very pure and precise way on the palate. — 3 months ago
