With my homeboys celebrating a bday, while rest of NYC is watching the Super Bowl. An amazing skin contact Italian, from Montalcino no less. Broad but still somehow terroir driven, definitely drink close to room temp. Yellow/ light orange hue, nice mouthfeel and enough prickly acidity to play off the Sicilian. sashimi w Meyer lemon & chili oil but also to keep up with everything else (delicious).

Trebbiano, Malvasia, Verdicchio, Grechetto. On lees for more than two weeks. Amber color, pronounced minerality, brine, dried apricot, honey, candied lime, bright tropical fruits, white pepper, earl grey tea, and acacia. Bone dry, med+ acid to balance the phenolic bitterness. — 4 days ago
Thank you so much to Holly at The Whitby for sharing this pick! Very pleasant to talk with and a wonderfully versatile palate.
I received for Xmas one of those nice sunlight alarm clocks that goes off with chirping birds in the morning and weirdly that’s what I thought of when I took the first sip of this. Acidic but not in a way that makes you want to throw it out the window. A nice little wake up call (but for the evening! not the morning) with just a nice lil fruity kick to make it pleasant for sipping.
A reminder that I’d really like to try more orange wines for the sake of simply Understanding. — a month ago
