Really amazing how consistent this wine is year to year and how well it stood up to a spicy Christmas Eve five fish Cioppino as the white wine alternative. Defines QPR

Held its own at the table with two outstanding BdMs. Light body, smooth mouthfeel, good acidity and light tannins. Sangiovese sour cherry with herbal and wood elements and average length. Alcoholic heat mentioned by others not noted. Pretty is the right description.

45 min decant. Experience essentially identical to Nostrabacchus describes except it was it was just a little rough at the edges especially compared to the more elegant 06 Uccelliera. Nothing that time will not cure which will only make it that much better. Outstanding

Served with another BdM (Canalicchio did Sopra) and a Rosso (Uccelliera) with a simple family Italian meal. All three wines were appreciated. This was the WOTN and clearly the most elegant of the three. Silky seamless mouthfeel, excellent depth of flavors with red fruit, forest floor elements and firm tannins with excellent length. 45 min decant.

Substantially better than my last bottle. After 20 minutes, a lovely melange of fruit and spice flavors savored by everyone who tasted it. A stellar wine

What a bargain! A bright, mouthful of green apple, honeydew melon and lemon, with a nutty overtone, a touch of butteriness, herbal interest and good length all with a silky mouthfeel. Not sure I could find a California Chardonnay this good and fresh for $15. These days the value seems to be coming from Maconnais and Côte Chalonnaise.

Shared with parents over Outstanding Pallantes meatballs in red sauce. Lovely elegant medium bodied red with ample cherry, rose and wood notes with firm tannic finish. Great and a good value

12/5/2015 - Onthelees Likes this wine: NR

Was reductive and disjointed upon opening but evolved very nicely with air over two days. Did not spritz on this occasion and has a more integrated profile than in July. Delicious red fruit, enjoyable herbal notes but what really stood out was the citrus like acidity which endured deep into the finish so you could focus on it for 20 seconds or so. I was not successful in finding the right paring for this wine and wonder if it is best consumed alone. Fun!

The preferred Pinot noir at a home blind tasting vs. Oregon and Bourgogne bottlings but also the most expensive of the three. Very satisfying with an awesome Beef Bourguignon at the event.

The best of my three bottles. My experience very much as cwang describes. Love the mixed berry and sweet rum cherry fruit, the smoky chocolate accents, the trailing cinnamon spice, the slightly rich mouthfeel, and the length. Got better with each glass. Think this can open up more with time but easily drinkable now. A lot of sediment but even though I did not decant, it added to the pleasure.

The best of our three bottles. Crystal clear light ruby; nose of earth and root; crisp acidity and dusty tannins supporting a light body; initially the palate was dominated by bitter roots but opened up to bright cherry and cranberry fruit with a delightful balance of earth. Refreshing; I think this wine deserves a few years in the bottle, much as the producer has suggested. An excellent food wine

A wine so good I looked forward to the next glass, the next taste. Lovely deep ruby; aromas of red fruit, mushroomy earth and a touch of oak; perfect acid balance and dusty tannins with supple mouth feel; delicious fresh cherry, strawberry, earth and light spicy brambly elements on the mid palate where a flash of minerality made an appearance. Outstanding length, a touch of oak and a whiff of licorice on the finish. Maybe their first Pinot but really a mature effort by a deft hand.

Pale yellow; fresh citrus/lemon nose with just molecular hints of oak; what really counts in this wine is the intense minerality suspending the lemon and creamy elements with excellent acidity and persistence where stoniness teases the tongue. We loved this wine. A truly great value.
