This was excellent. Full-bodied but very drinkable. Took a bit of time to open up but very pleasing and balanced jamminess. Was sad when the bottle was over! — a month ago

I've certainly never heard of this grape before but that is part for the course for the wines from this octogenarian. Very savory with some vegetal aspects, crushed roses and red berries. Mid to light weight, it's one for drinking in the near term to capture its fruit, especially as it hasn't seen oak so limited tertiary development likely. — 2 months ago

Really nice wine. Fruity. Not as fancy as a Toro. 2015 — a month ago

Venezia Giulia IGT Sciaglìn 2016

The producer is an octogenarian who works in Friuli and has dedicated his life to the discovery, preservation and promotion of near extinct grape varietals. This white has brightness with saline qualities and honey notes. Fresh and floral, it is a lovely wine for the summer.

One other thing: the cork is a composite of two different cork types, the traditional cork sadwiched between the reconstituted type. I don't think I've seen that before.

@James Forsyth I have seen that style of combo cork before... But can't recall the producer, you're right, it's not common.

@Severn Goodwin agreed. I can imagine that it has certain benefits. I'd be interested to know more. So much of our wine enjoyment rests in the hands of cork performance.

From Tenerife the Spanish island in front of Marocco 🇲🇦 . Like a Trousseau Alicia nailed it.
Raspberry driven and tart, chalky. A nice summer wine but not more then that. Limited secondary complexity so I do not understand the hype of the sommeliers on this site. From Max Kogod.

I completely agree. I’ve been pretty underwhelmed by some of these wines which get so much somm love. Taganan was my favorite. Albahra my least favorite - very one dimensional.
