    March 1, 2015 - Way better on day 2. Still a great wine, white flowers, hint of licorice and lemon. Oily texture but full of energy.
    Textbook vermentino.

    October 12, 2013 - A few days after drinking Leccia Patrimonio this was an interesting comparison.
    Very good as well with the same chalky minerality. The palate seemed broader here with riper fruits. The balance was actually much better on the 2nd day with more harmonious fruit (almost too intense on day one).
    This still has a few years to go.

    August 9, 2013 - Blind tasting. Nose discret ; red currant, dust, a bit of coffee, a hint of minth. The mouth in fine, medium bodied, on bloody orange, a bit like a rosso di montalcino. This plesant fine stylee in unusual in corsica. Interesting, almost very good.
