Still very tight. Amazing texture, good lenght, fresh and mineral finish.

A touch lighter and less ripe than some of the others which is maybe a product of the ‘15 vs ‘16 vintage. My personal fave out of the lineup

The evolution in the decanter and glass was crazy. Paired perfectly with wild boar pappardelle.

Much cleaner than anticipated, really structured, heavy, dense, and still showing a lightness...

Very lifted and fresh despite high abv. 60 year old nerello mascalese vines, non filtered, and very well made.

As I said before. This guy has a vision and does what he thinks is best for the wines.

Munjebel 9 VA. Remarkable wine. Enjoyed with a rich, aged pecorino. Grippy, glazed with acidity and potent fruit. A brilliant expression of nerello.
