Lime zest, mint, and a little guava/lychee on the nose. Starts out all flint and grapefruit then broadens into something richer and more mouth-coating. A note of chamomile too. Beautiful, I would love to see how this ages.

Update: Enjoyed this over 4 days. Though there was no big surprise to the evolution, it settled into itself and provided so much joy. For all around enjoyment to the dollar, this is hard to beat.

Almond skin, herbs, oily and salty. Smoky as if on flint. Moderate acidity.

Giovane, acido, sprintante! Il fiano deve ancora emergere ma c'è stoffa

Lovely and crisp. Perfect with fish and light pasta dishes. Loads of acid and citrus.
