Community Tasting Note

  • Ludi Likes this wine: 91 points

    August 3, 2015 - Oro antico. Il naso, dal profilo godibilmente ossidativo, declama cedro candito, albicocca matura, anche secca, liquirizia, anice, iodio, zafferano e sensazioni decisamente salmastre. Bocca affascinante, con lunga persistenza che richiama il bergamotto. Non eccelsa la freschezza. Degorgement del luglio 2009

Sorry to read about the freshness, which we usually get from this wine. Have you tried Initiale? As good, if not better, and half the price.
