Nervy, pure, and structured. Deeply mineral, great phenolic character, opened up becoming more round and expressive.

Not very giving on the first night. Toasted sesame seeds mostly, pretty reductive. Left it open in the fridge overnight and it was wonderful when I came back to it. Still reductive, but pleasantly so. Crystalline aromatics. Citrus, underripe tree fruit, mineral and energetic. Can't wait to see how it shapes up in a few years.

A blend of Chardonnay, ribolla and fruilano from Italy. Refreshing and tasty wine.

Feast of the Seven Fishes companion. Muted at first, but the brightness and acidity showed after opening for about an hour. Another great blend from @Dan Petroski.

Lots of shaving cream sulphur knocked down the nose. Opened to nice herbal nuances, but still quite shut down after decanting. I'll revisit tomorrow.

Chardonnay, Ribolla Gialla & Friulano meet in this lovely, stoney Colli Orientali. The result of the partnership between Dan, Massimo & the team at Ronco del Gnemiz. An excellent and worthy addition to Massican.
