Community Tasting Note

    August 25, 2021 - Returned my whole case (also of 2013 and 2015) because they were not filtered correctly/fully. Very unfortunate because was looking forward to them.

    Or hoping to find out if said bottles were returned in my area… XD

    9/5/21, 3:03 AM - I returned them in agreement with the seller/producer. I did not receive any details except for that the filtration was flawed and that the substance was not harmful.
    This is not residu I have seen before (tried to add photos so you can see and draw your own conclusion but I keep getting an error). Feel free to drop your email so I can send them. Will try later here.
    PS With my Toscana IGT I never experienced this residu issue.

    Never had this trouble with any other wine from this producer. Something clearly went wrong. Good on you for returning.
