Skin contact between 4-6 months of Malvasia, Marsanne and local grapes to Emilia Romagna which are unnamed. Briny, cider-y nose. The palate on this wine shows excellent complexity. Some light hazelnut and citrus give way to apricot notes. This changes with air and really changes with food. We drank this with Thai which was on the spicy side and I can honestly say that it was one of the most remarkable food & wine pairings I’ve ever had. This truly blew my mind. What also blows my mind is the fact that this was left unreleased all these years. Marvin Gaye’s talent has lived on through his music all these years and this “new” album just adds another layer to that catalogue. Great stuff all around here. — 13 days ago

Huge amount of Aroma here... Bacon fat sizzling in an iron skillet covered from the elements by an old, lighting struck barn.
Black pepper, Maui Xmas pepper berry, cherry skin, plum skin, dried alpine berries. Flint, sea derived saline.
Finishing with tangerine like acidity, pine resin and vegetal garden stalk
I called it on the nose - this grape is a genetic match to the Black Mission grape, AKA Pais, AKA Criolla. — 21 days ago

Cherry, strawberry, almonds, raisins. Nice nose. The à palate is composed of a very strong acid backbone carrying loads of cherry all along and laying some layers of matter on the side : some silk and some sweetness too. The rear is a roller-coaster of tannins kicking up a very long lasting fresh finish with cherry notes. Very enjoyable again. — 15 days ago
Surprisingly advanced state - already plenty of secondary style prune and other notes coming through. Definitely one to drink vs hold, in my opinion. Nice acid and good fruit throughout. Decent finish with smooth integrated tannins. Enjoyable. — 6 days ago
Age is evident which is why I love this wine. Nuts fruit still doing well — 12 days ago
