At first blush I got a hit of Brett but a vigorous decant aired it out and it’s drinking quite deftly. A new natural wine shop opened in my hood: Psychic Wines. So I had to chat the owner up on what he was into. This Sicilian elixir is a gentle beast. Grilled melon, a bit of sea salt, and an animal undercurrent of pleasant funk. Feels like summer love: sharp, poignant, and a bit sweaty. The first two sips I did not love. The more decant time the more I’m relishing. Very sexy wine.

This wine is both juicy and tart, with a smooth buttery essence. Definitely a slight funkiness in taste, but very well balanced. It opens up the longer it breathes.

A wine with intriguingly unfolding aromas. When poured it was admittedly too cold and aromas closed.
