    August 27, 2017 - This could have been sensational but for the acidity. Laden with lemon, apple and peach, so ripe, sweet, great weight. Really rounding out and coming into its own. Fabulous flavour which might have merited a score around 94-95 but the acidity is painful and a distraction.

    May 21, 2014 - 2 barberas (and one auslese) (At Terje's): Very pure and delicate. Some botrytis, apricot and ananas on the nose. Still impressive young.

    August 17, 2013 - Opening up well, very racy and a lovely nose with apple, lemon and a hint of petrol. To taste, mineral that apple and citrus mix. Great acidity, this is starting to shine.

    October 21, 2012 - Youthful but medium sweet and crystalline purity. Lovely wine. Time in hand.

  • David Strange Likes this wine:

    April 20, 2011 - Sorry, I was a bit wrecked when I drank this so my note was not expressive in terms of detail. It reads: Wow, this is incredibly sweet and charged with a frankly terrifying amount of acidity. I'm impressed and also in rather a lot of pain. Brilliant, I tell you, brilliant.
