Wowza. Oxidative and rich. Hazelnuts, and essential oils. Finish is off the hook. Long long long

Orange wine... An enigma wrapped in a riddle. Are they just bad or are they complex and interesting? An acquired taste or an affected opinion based on fadishness. The last one I tasted was vibrant and fruity. This isn't. It's bone dry, some tertiary elements, certainly no fruit to speak of. Slightly bitter. Possibly a sort of umami sensation. Definitely weird. Did I hate it? I'm not sure. There was something intriguing about it. Did I finish a glass? No.

Funky aroma. Peppery, spicy. Earthy. 3 weeks on the skins. Long fermentation. Evolving palate.

One of my all-time favorite and 2010 reaffirms my love affair with Giampiero's dedication to 120 year old Trebbiano he collects from the Spoletino valley in Umbria.

Aromas of old leather and moderate oxidation. Strong phenolics, with a freshness of flavor on the palate and bright acidity.
