Light to medium gold in the glass, this wine smells of wet chalkboard pomelo pith, and bee pollen. In the mouth, tart bee pollen and citrus pith mix with crushed stones chamomile and a touch of yeastiness. Gorgeous acidity and great length.

The nose and palate are interesting but not quite enough energy to really make it exciting.

Not particularly fresh. Lacking acid for my taste. Was a good desert wine. Honeyed.

Incredibly youthful and fresh for a 20 year old wine. Light to medium gold. Textured and long. Dried apricots and chamomile. Maialino always serving up the raddest lineup.

Honey, dried apricots, black tea, and a hint of smokiness. Needs food to really show. (Was amazing with morels and pasta.)
