A very nice bottle, but more green herbal notes on the nose and palate than the last bottle. Likely a trait which might not be showing had I read my own notes on this bottle... "future bottles should be 2024+" so not 2020...🤷🏻♂️🤦♂️
Otherwise consistent notes for day one on this bottle.
Nose has blackberry juice, hardwood charcoal, over-ripe blueberry, ripe plum and metallic minerals (wet rust).
Palate has spice notes, metallic blackberry, mouthful of black cherries, old leather, the tannins are light initially but make their attack on the long finish. — a month ago
Tart and refreshing, but with medium body. Lemon, saline, minerality. Delicious with buffalo mozzarella and ricotta — 5 days ago
Slightly astringent to start but mellows to delightful red fruit tobacco and fig. Still has time left. — 13 days ago

Tannic volcano, this needs air and a lot of breathing time but it’s enjoyable!!! — 25 days ago
Minerals that burn your nose. This is what pears and nuts do when they age together and are coated in creme fraiche. Big lemons, pith and fresh juice. It keeps tasting like it’ll get to the bitter point but instead it turns into spice. It tastes like blue cheese all along the tongue. Tons of umami. Love that volcanic smokiness, like good fiano gets too. Does Campanian wine get any better than this? Some oaky sweet spices like vanilla and white pepper and black pepper. Like the spice in the finish. Long finish. It’s big and delicious. I wish I had more stashed away. Where is it, @Lyle Fass ? — 20 days ago
