    August 25, 2023 - Very cool to taste mature carricante - side by side with a 2011 in particular! Gold color, secondary aromas with a touch of Meyer lemon, touch of petrol. Medium + body, rich, clean, with a Riesling like texture. This bottle was from the winery a showed quite well - drink now

    January 3, 2021 - Nice salinity but there was something bitter in the finish which took away from the wine. Would like to try this grape again to see if maybe I don’t like this particular grape or if it is something in this wine.

    November 24, 2020 - Light golden color, hints at seashore, peach and jasmine on the nose, maybe a touch of petrol as well, medium bodied with juicy acid, bright white fruit attack with starfruit and kiwi fruit on the mid palate, the finish is precisely mineral, refreshing and delicious, inviting and accommodating, great food wine, had with shrimp scampi over spaghetti

    September 11, 2019 - Lovely, very drinkable volcanic white. Lots of minerality, ash and smoke. Lemon and Grapefruit, medium high acidity. Some herbal notes

    March 15, 2019 - This is reminiscent of chardonnay and lacking the minerality I was hoping for in this one.
