hmmm. so, had 3 glasses from the coravin 10 days ago, and now just poured another coravin glass. as with other funky whites (folk off, etc) the color has gone more brown, and this time there is a new band-aid thing going on now. I think this thing is awesome for certain things, but not this wine.

A most interesting Umbrian white blend from one of the region's finest - brilliant mandarin color w a beguiling balance of savory cheese rind, cardamom spice and brilliantly clean finish

Hey Zeus Kristo! My my... Talk about powerful "white" wine! Amber NOT orange with off dry nutty notes... Bee pollen, cardamom. Woof.

Needed to open up but concentrated and full of cutrus and sweet spice. Acidity still kicking.
