Salinity on the nose like you are smelling the Med sea. Good acidity. A little slate and tropical fruit (I.e., rich fruit) on the palate. Very smooth. Not sweet or dry, has good body, lingers on the tongue. Very good wine. Paired *amazingly* with sweet corn agnolotti at Graffiato in DC.

Sella & Mosca 2009 vs Rocca Rubia 2012:
- Farblich praktisch kein Unterschied
- Der Sella & Mosca ist sehr rund und balanciert, allerdings damit auch nicht so interessan wie der Rocca Rubia
- Rocca Rubia ist für mich der recht klare Sieger

Consistent with the prior 5 bottles, good>very good, with excellent purity of fruit and fresh, cool acids. In its peak plateau now, this simply requires a 60 minute aeration in decanter before it's firing on all cylinders. Oak and EtOH fully integrated; good by itself, better with food. 14,5% abv., recommended

Served non-blind

Darker in color (gold) and riper than what I was expecting from a Vermentino. This wine is very aromatic, bursting with ripe peach, honeysuckle and lemon peel. It's full bodied and flavorful, showing some RS, with a moderate acidity.

Very sweet, red-brick and bright red fruit tones. Light to medium-bodied, some sulphur and light spice. This is stunningly good for the price; drinking great now. Drink now.

Very pleasant, stone fruit aromatic and good acidity. 12.5% alc. bit course in finish and a hint of RS, probably good with Indian food.

Very interesting wine. Started a bit slow on PnP, but after being upon about an hour, really hit its stride. Good to start on night #2, but faded. A lot of different aromas and flavors evolving and devolving over two nights.

If tasted blind, I would guess this a mid-grade Brunello: not bad for a wild card from Sardinia. Very competent on all axes. A food wine, certainly, but a serviceable one which, unlike those overpriced, overhyped Brunellos, comes in for exactly what it's worth.

PnP let air in the glass for 1hr. Bright ruby purple with a clear edge. Dusty blackberry and dark chocolate on the nose. Bracing dark cherry blackberry flavours with a touch of cough syrup. Light herbal note on the finish. Best with food. Good value.

Intense red bordeaux color with a little brick rim.
Ont he nose is complex;leather and heart and some unusual
Farm hint. On the palate is warm yet rounf and fully ready to be drunk. Decanted for just 1 hour in the bottle. Paired with a 1.2 kg fiorentina steak. To be drunk now or in 3 years time max.

Not like other vermentinos that I have tried. The nose is ripe and buttery. Other community reviewers have noted a tropical element to this wine. I can agree with that. The palate is also ripe with apples and honey flavors. Very quaffable but lacks the salty typicity of other vermentinos. If I had tasted this blind, I would have quested CA chardonnay or South African chenin blanc.
