Community Tasting Note

  • JonnyG Likes this wine: 92 points

    July 27, 2013 - Rich and refined, with white peaches, tea and a bit of citrus among the many complex flavors noted. We cruised through 3 bottles among the 6 of us before moving onto the reds.

    The "Petracine" is a very characteristic piedmont white wine, the Riesling is very rare vine in Langhe.
    Also "Bricco delle Viole" is a beautiful Barolo. Aldo Vajra produces fantastic wines, he's a great wine maker.
    Ciao from Italy

    Also, I feel proud when I read that Italian wine is drunk and is appreciated in the United States. Cheers!
    Bye bye,
