Light gold color. On the nose notes of lemon zest, nice minerality with notes of wet gravel, nice peaches notes with a flowery finish. On the palate citrusy, cat pee specific to Sauvignon Blanc, really high acidity but overall nice balance. Reminds of new world Sauvignon Blanc. Really good quality and length on the palate with a lemon lime finish. Bought from Palermo for 10€. Really good quality for the money — 11 days ago
Beautiful and unique wine that’s been a real change compared to my recent tries. The unfiltered amber hue is striking in the glass, folding into pinks and reds. Candied ginger and nectarine peel mash together in a winter cocktail like profile, but are held together nicely with brown sugar, some malic flavors, and a soft floral touch. Cacao and tropical notes reach out in nice undertones. Structure is great for 6 years old. Evolved slowly with each sip.
Excellent with Asian flavors. — 2 days ago
Golden yellow color. On the nose citrusy with stone fruits nuances. Otherwise on the palate really tasty and fruit driven. Juicy mouth feel with a lot of pear notes, melon and peaches. Even after some minutes you can feel nice aroma of pears on your gums. Really nice balance with low minerality makes this wine easy to drink and really enjoyable. Definitely excellent quality for the money. Bought from Palermo for 11€. — 12 days ago

Popped and poured; no formal notes. At this stage the 2011 BdM from Terre Nere is fully developed and luscious. Dark cherry fruit with some stewed qualities, kirsch liqueur, orange zest, herbs and espresso. The body is full and almost a bit chewy. Structure is firm but tannin is well integrated and comes across fairly round which is probably more of an indication of the vintage than anything else. Finish is long. This is a more rich and opulent version of this wine. Drink now and through 2030. — 2 days ago
Excellent example of Frappato. A chilled glass went perfectly with my pizza. Cranberry and earthy flavors, with smoke in the finish. A great pizza accompaniment. — 5 days ago
