+.5 for nostalgia and +.5 for 20 year old trebbiano still lovely and kicking. just a glorious wine from a time and winemaker whose likes we won’t be able to relish again.

Surprising. Almost fizzy- secondary fermentation? Quite funky- Brett? Very vital and alive with a lees-y quality. Bright and precise.

Utter bliss. Vibrant, clean, mellow and intense at the same time somehow. Just brilliant

Finesse, delicacy, complexity and focus
Quince, cedar and thyme tea
White pepper, almond spread and white choc
A field of flowers(mainly yellow)
Lemon curds, dill, breadcrumbs and more and more
Seaweed and strongly marine
Whispered rather than shouted class
Every swirl is a discovery, a subtle win of aromas
Toffees and cappuccino coming out of the glass with the rising temperature
It goes without saying the fun
So long aftertaste
12% in alcohol
This is the gotha of the Italian white wines
Still decades ahead i am sure
It could easily rank a Grand Cru status
Grab it if you can..and then age it

A surprise! From the 2010 vintage, this had the weight of white burg and density. Acidity of Trebbiano. I was shocked at how good this was.

Firm reduction which doesn’t blow off in a decanter, plenty of saline, briny, cool minerality, savory fruits, citrus and olives. Lots of texture and weight but also very light. Another wonderful expression of what “natural” wine is capable of being.

Wooly, waxen, funky in the best ways, slight peeking of volatility which isn’t off-putting in the least, the savory and mineral aromatics and flavors are sitting in a nice place. Feels ready to drink and not mature at all.
