Doesn’t give much at first aromatically. In fact what it does give is quite stinky, savoury. But suddenly, as though it’s struggling to find its way out of a cage, you find the purest of cherries, minerals, green veg. This is pristine on the palate. Elegant but concentrated. Fine, hushed, but grounding tannins. Very lucky to try this. I understand why people seek it out. Very distinctive. But it’s nothing relative to Valentini’s white.
