This is Piedmontese Volnay. The most Burgundian Alto Piemonte wine ever. Smells like elite Village Volnay. Cherries. Upon cherries. So pure and refined. Gobs of minerals and elite dried roses. Just bananas aromas. Palate is next level refined but also has a hint of charming rusticity. Juicy and pure with velvety tannins and awesome freshness. Elite wine with structure to burn. Enjoy now and over 15 years. Brilliant showing.

Another new AP producer. Floral, expansive and delicate nose. Also loads of tar and tobacco. Mid to end of season cherries, cherry flower, mineral and sour cherry. Fragrant off the bat but needs 10-15 minutes to get going. Then gorgeous wet leaves and a burgundy sensibility. Layered and haunting. Like Volnay. Rich and decadent with cutting acids and big black and red cherry fruit and soft but substantial tannins. Loads of energy and purity. Terrific inner mouth florals balance and juiciness. Lovely tannin quality and awesome finesse. This is terrific. After some air this becomes more compact, fresh and complete. Brilliant wine. No hard edges and super engaging mid palate which crashes into a painfully intense tiny berry fruited finish with glorious sap and structure. Incredible.

Out of the gates beautiful nose. Blueberry violet mashup. Intense but round. Really pretty. A bare hint of spice to round it out. Intensely floral. A 9.5 nose.

As it opens more dense deep and profound. Wow. Almost like dehydrated cherries. That savory cherry spice melange that you only get from $$$ expensive Barolo. Just infiltrates the nose. Cherry spice intense perfume

Palate is tight on open. Crushed blueberries. Grippy tanins. As this opens piercingly bright cherry and sour cherry. Very clean and precise.

1 hour in dense deep cherries. Chocolate and spice in a balancing way. Controlled density. Has that savoriness you get in high end Nebbiolo. Barolo weight in this vintage. This is clean. Sick juiciness. Old school barolo weight. Present but not obnoxious.

An hour in ... a long finish. Savory. A hint of chocolate. Cherry.

Needs 2-3 years is my guess to drink without a 1 hour decant. We’ll see.

This is a sick young “Barolo” an hour in. Wow.

9.5 is the floor here. It has the balance structure and density to be a world killer in 10 years.
