beautiful clean yellow color with a touch of green. nose of lemon pie or biscuits/tart...fills the mouth from front to back and side to side with a noticeable texture but its dancing not heavy. very long and pleasant finish, this was a awesome drink but the wine also is very young. this will get better and better for quite some time i think

deep dark almost black in color, showed a lot of fruit on the nose and although having a lot of tanin too it , this mag drank very nicely , dark fruits and a bit meaty, it was very long and very well balanced. it has a lot of developing to do but was a good young drink and a good bridge between old style barolo and slightly more modern

deep dark very youthful appearance , still showing restained primary fruit. big in the mouth with a long finish with incrediable balance. this wine struts like a young champion and always seems to me to be waiting for something so he can show the world how good he really is

deep dark purplr color, dense, nose of blackish fruits or even cherries, the wine is big and vold and full, multi dimensional. it is showing almost only young fruit and seems a bit stiff or still coming together. long finish. needs time, big and young for the vintage

have now had this a few times in the past few months and have been surprised how approachable and easy to drink it has been, not saying it is light or early drinker but the tannins are velvet, the mouth feels round and the cherry fruit has some sweetness and is delicious...burying the rest of mine

Very much enjoyed this, as its p3 no storage issues, the wine fresh, lively and,rich, it,had a,straight citrus line like a,good white burgundy and a creaminess of good old champagne. It improved with some air and time and was a really nice drink
