Opens with a mouthful of bright candied raspberry and currant with spice. Opened up after an hour and needs air and food.

Fantastic purity, the mouthfeel and aromas make me think it has a teeny bit of carbonic. This is a Lazio wine from vineyards south of Rome made from the Cesanese grape and puts fourth a wine here that is part Burgundy, part Gigondas, but very Italian in acids. Bright red raspberry and currant fruits, licorice, mushroom and spice.

Burgundian. Earthy. Fruit isn't at the forefront. Amazing. I want to buy so much if this.

Dark fruit. Earthy, "natural funk." Even at 14%, balanced and enough acid for the carbonara pizza at Marta.
