Super fruity, energetic and pure. Cherries and minerals. Just the tiniest bit of brett adds bottom notes and complexity. Kind of perfect for what it is.

Juicy fruit with beautiful acid, a bit of smokiness to boot: Italy's answer to Cru Beaujolais

This wine was a bucket list wine for me . It evolved several times over the course of drinking. But it blossomed after an hour. It became a burgundy as all of the barnyard evaporated. Or maybe this was the wine talking
