2011 vintage. Ripe yet youthfully austere. Better in five years. Backward but holding a serious structure.

Very powerful nose, mixing Brett, some VA, with a strange note of banana. Quite horrid. Leathery brett dominates the palate as well.

A singular classy beauty, all about close to perfection - a very appealing wine with great freshness & concentration - done by one of the Abruzzo legend - thanks for this treat Emidio 😋

Not what I had hoped. Perhaps it’s in a slump and other may express better next year? Decanted for about 4 hours.

Really enjoyed this although it could use another 5 yrs. Bright crunchy red cherry fruits, very floral, lavender, crushed rock with good purity & acid.
