This is very young but very delicious. Nose is not giving off much initially but the palate is so velvety, low key rich and so suave. This is so elegant and refined. With gorgeous dark black fruits and fascinating mineral backbone. Nose starts to give smoke, spice and a little wood. Hints of floral and incense. But it will be better with air. It’s multidimensional for sure as well. The depth, concentration and finesse is quite something. Really a step up from Vignolo in 19. Structured to age 5-10 years. Likely needs 2-3. Like a Cornas. Rock star wine. — 7 months ago
Nose is so floral. Gorgeous to the max. Lilacs. Wild Blackberries almost Cote rotie ish. Almost psychotic. A 9.4 nose. Dense. Almost sexual awesome licorice.
Palate is more new world. Remnants of oak. Darker fruits. Spicier. A brilliant slut. Big almost slutty but balanced fruit.
A brilliant elegant slut. A racy girl.

Terrific nose. Plus plus plus floral. Lavender. Red fruits. Smokey. Very expansive. Palate has terrific fruit. Incredibly juicy. Concentrated and complex. Wonderful freshness, minerality and just tremendous energy. Awesome purity and depth. Such tiny berry intensity and length. This is the best Vignolo by a mile. Very elegant. Great tannins. Refined. Almost a 9.4. Terrific length and clarity here. Inner mouth aromas off the chart. — 7 months ago

Nose is beautiful. Raspberries blackberries melded at the dna level. Integrated. Just perfume. Flower of a spice. Very jumpy - launches itself at the nostrils. Just fills them.
Palate is perfect. Raspberries. Blackberries. Perfect texture spice. Fucking insane. A hint less dense than Podere forte but more perfumed. Like mountain water crazily infused with spiced raspberries. A hint of the most gorgeous licorice. Savory. Salivatory.
A very elegant syrah. Even more so than Cote rotie in a Sense. The crappy soils tone down the fruit expression so it’s much more refined and naked.
Silky texture. — 10 months ago
