Starts with a proper stinkerl, then turns to the most aromatic bacon & roast (vegans, look away) only to slowly open up with lovely pure black cherry & cassis with a touch of liquorice. Lighter on the palate than the nose would suggest, but with great balance, purity and tension between the fruit and the minerality. Juicy and with light yet grippy tannins. 1h after opening this beauty sings.

Deep garnet hue, tertiary, sweet/sour, energetic acid for its aged character, lingering dusty tannin and amaro spice. Old leather, dried and stewed cherry/plum fruit, dust, porcini, animal hide, hung meat, cigar wrapper, bitter roots, bitter cocoa powder, wet earth, mulch, rotting leaves. Love its chewy and upfront impact on the palate. Very complex and very drinkable — 2 months ago
Great northern Italian wine, would have thought it was a Pinot if blind tasting. Earthy, barnyard, lush dark fruit! — 16 days ago
I’m trying sugar free wines. This is my first. This was good. Not outstanding but I would buy it again. — a month ago
Unique and singular, aromatic, rich mouthfeel and driven by bitter phenolics and earthy spices. Jasmine, tea leaves, subtle yellow fruit, grapey, sweaty socks. Steely minerality, oily texture — 2 months ago
