    August 18, 2018 - Delicate smell with red fruits and scents of soil and ashes. The taste is very pleasant. Soft tannins, expressive with fruits but at the same time elegante. Looking forward to the next one I have, and will also try the 2016.

    May 20, 2018 - Sunday blinds (Chicago, IL): Served double blind. Light colour with lovely, crunchy red fruit on the nose. Delicate, pretty, and delicious, with red fruit on the palate as well. It's a very light wine with a hint of strawberry and some minerality -- had me going straight to Burgundy. Everything seemed to align with red Burgundy, in fact, I didn't pick up any volcanic sulphur aromas at all. Nevertheless, this is simply an incredibly delicious wine. I wonder how it'll age...

    April 1, 2018 - Clear, filtered from the looks.
    Clean, polished, industrial pinot-ish character to start with. A rather boring start leading up to the characteristic volcanic finish.
    Nice to taste the volcanic terroir on more neutral background. This is raised on wooden and steel vats, in contrast to the amfora raised Cornelissen (ive only had Contadino).

    December 28, 2017 - Light ruby color. Unique, earthy, mineral notes. Good acidity. Volcanic terroir shown off.

    November 11, 2017 - Vins qui sort des sentiers battus.
    Nez florales et sur la terre.
    En bouche, des roses, des cerises et des cerises.
    Beaux tannins joufflus avec une finale souple.
