On the nose, this Malvasia di Candia blend from Emilia-Romagna smells like driving into Palm Springs from Highway 111 with the windows down—an intoxicating breeze of squishy peaches, lemon, hot asphalt, and freshly watered lawns.
Sipping on “Ageno” tastes similarly warm, with notes of apricot, navel oranges, leather, and sweat you accidentally licked off your own face. It’s bold but with balanced acidity and finishes with sandy tannins that feel just swept off a dune.

I've definitely had better versions if this wine. This one's just riddled in VA. Meh.

ジャスミンの様な香り!
皮と種に浸す時間が長い造り。
トリッパ(上品)にピタリ。
白ワインなのに色が濃い。、タンニンの味わいもあり。

Complexe orange wine. Color almost red on the burgundy side. Copper? Nose: Apricot, Gatorade, 2 days old cut grass, honeycomb. Stunning wine: juicy. Fresh. Bone dry. Astringent mouth feel. Long lasting. Citrusy. Spices. An amazing wine to be kept safe and enjoyed solo if possible. Such greatness is impossible to keep for your self. Wow.

amazing orange wine - easy to drink but with a complex body, notes of tangerine and a smooth finish.
