I’ve compared this to warmer Nebbiolo with its striking rose petal bouquet, with some tart red cherry, spice and a little herbaciousness in the mix. Finishes with a touch of heat.

This wine... is mental. Olives, salt, toffee, oil, funk.
I wish I had some Jamon on hand to go with it.
Amazing.

Interesting find - firm gum line tannins. Prune, earth and cherry. Felt very Italian. Classic.

Light on the nose, red dark fruit, easy finish, perfect cheese pairing

This was a fascinating wine. Complex with ripe, juicy dark fruit leavened by some herbal notes. Elegant and polished on the attack with a little rusticity on he finish. Combined elements of Burgundy, Piedmont, and even a little Raffault Picasses funkiness. Really really good, and far and away the best wine I've had from Greece.

Brent's description was spot on: traces of Musar, some Brett that blows off quickly, a spot of VA, bruised dark fruit and a woodsy component with acidity for days! Really fun bottle.

Like aged Barolo. Dried flowers and dark fruits. Earthy and wild.

This is in a very good place right now. Just the right amount of oxidative goodness while still maintaining acid, tannin structure, and tons of bright red and black fruit. The kind of wine that smells so good you almost don't want to drink it. Almost.
