#Like a fine #Pinot that has been kissed by Silician volcano.

Ripe, but balanced with great drive and length. Typical orange peel and mint flavors with rocky red fruit. This will give the contrada wines a run for their money this vintage.

Robe rubis foncé
Nez de fruit rouge d olive noire gourmand mais avec une fraîcheur
Bouche suave mais avec un événement acidité et une tonicité apportée par de beaux tanins👍👍

I don’t think this is yet a 97pt wine (per Vinous) but it’s got the stuffing for greatness. Young. Young. Young. Even after dbl decant, 6 hours slow ox, 1 hour wide decant. Others have called this period the “dumb phase” for this wine. I generally agree. Still a lot of fun. It’s like an energetic, boisterous Italian Pinot.

Bright red fruit, juicy acidity, volcanic terroir really comes through. Super complex

Really nice wild black cherry fruit with spice - probably opened this too early - big tannic grip

Light, fruit forward and jammy. This is a pleasant surprise!

So young, vibrant, and light on its feet. Yet it's also carrying an undertone of dark fruit, earthiness and bramble. This is a great wine.

Просто невероятное вино из сорта винограда nerello mascalese, со сбалансированной кислотностью и танинностью.
