Community Tasting Notes 25

    July 25, 2016 - Explosive and sustained floral aromatics soar from the glass. It's really almost too much (a bit like drinking perfume), and odd in terms of the contrast with a relatively light and somewhat dull palate, which is dry but has a bit of foxy "muscat" flavor to it. Interesting stuff though that gets points for the aromatic expressiveness, and Jill loves it.

    November 15, 2015 - Blind tasting. Superb nose of litchee, rose and indian spices. Mouth surprising, really flavoured and perfumed : jasmin, orchid and mellow of apricot. But soft and lacking acidity.
    Globally unbalanced and saturated but one of the best muscat d'Alexandrie I had (actually a blend with Albanello).
    A rare wine that could match a sweat-sour asian food. Even if it is not my taste : that's a must have in an amateur cellar.

    February 15, 2015 - Nose: Ripe peaches, lemon & orange peel, white flowers, some acacia honey and a fresh sliced lychee. The fruit is very upfront here nevertheless a lovely nose.
    Palate: Medium bodied wine with a bit to less acidity for my personal taste. The Alcohol (only 12,5%) isn´t noticeable. Quite nice bitterness on the medium+ finish.

    A wonderful summer wine, which will pair well with some sea food.

    August 22, 2014 - (at Bar Centro Aperitivo)

    A bit cloudy medium lemon color.

    Young and fresh with grilled lemon, ripe peach, spices and crushed stones. Lovely and intriguing nose. Reminds me a bit of a white wine from the southern Rhône.

    Medium acidity, medium+ body. Yellow apples, tropical fruits and crushed stones on the palate. Rich and refreshing! It grew with air and rising temperature.

    Another lovely, personal wine from Arianna. Drinking very good in it's youth but would be fun to save a couple of bottles for some years. I'm pretty sure that it would turn out very good.
