￼Interesting nose of vanilla and ginger snap cookies. Purple fruits, cocoa and with white pepper and nutmeg on the finish. Amazingly balanced, especially for a Zin. — 22 days ago
Pale to mid Gold. Honeycomb, Quince with Apricot and a Charcoal note - wonderful aromatics which kept changing. Incredibly flavoursome with a creamy texture on the palate even though no oak ageing. Cumquat jam and apricot notes. A kaleidoscope of vibrant delicious flavours. Made from the little known Timorasso grape in Piedmont. Walter Massa was the saviour of this grape when much Timorasso was grubbed out in favour of the less troublesome Cortese to produce bulk quantities of the ubiquitous Gavi. They now grow the last few hectares of Timorasso in the world with minimal intervention, wild yeasts and no chemicals. Seek a bottle out for an exciting vinous journey. One of the 1001 Wines. — a month ago
Not sure if I've been here before.... This has potential, but needs time... At least.
Flint, ash, rose, white pepper, and only a hint of strawberry on the nose.
More red fruit on the palate, including strawberry and red cherry. Sour red cherry. Tannins are very nice at medium plus. Alcohol at medium plus. Acidity is medium. This can certainly be expected to improve with ageing, but I'm concerned that the fruit is not still dominant at only two years in.

Medicinal herbs, wildflowers and funk. Yellow fruit well integrated--not prominent. Unique. Remarkable. — 3 months ago
