Wonderful full-bodied wine. Served it with braised pork cheek and it was a home run. Lots of red fruit with nice mineral notes. Will buy it whenever I see it. — 12 days ago
2021/4/21-24 with pork shoulder Neapolitan alla genovese, busciata di tuminia cacio e pepe, etc. Pours a yellow gold. This was wonderful on day 1, with lots of bitter almond, beeswax and stone fruit. On subsequent days it felt a little blowsy - perhaps this bottle at this age didn’t need the extra air. — 6 months ago
Recommended for your next 90 degree summer day - get the pork shoulder smoking, get the kids in the pool, crack this open, relentlessly crush, and enjoy the appealing, faintly funky nose, juicy watermelon/strawberry vibe, pleasant acidity, and total lack of complexity. — 2 months ago
2018 was great with the pork shoulder I had. Still super young, but amazing. — 4 months ago
2021/4/21-22 with pork shoulder Neapolitan alla genovese, busciata di tuminia cacio e pepe, etc. Rich with black cherry, iron and spice, but a nice backbone of acid keeping this fresh and tannin giving structure. I am always suspicious of native Italian varieties that see barriques, but it wasn’t intrusive here - whether due to a deft touch, time or both. — 6 months ago
