Whoa. Beautiful expression of Nero d' Avola and Frappato. Tense at first but so alive once it opens up. Couldn't get enough of the herbal notes of eucalyptus and thyme from the Nero.

12 bottles in AZ and happy to claim 7. Beautiful balance of herbs and strawberry with minerality and good acid.

Sweet cherry, iron, grippy tannins. Slightly softer and sweeter the second night, but still relatively wound up. Perplexing wine given my experience with her style. Not sure when to try the next bottle of this.

Nice, bright but still tight. Better second and third days. Hold.
