    November 11, 2012 - Oxidized and murky orange in color, I found the wine to be lithe and gorgeous in a fine boned, exotic kind of way. It requires time in the glass and aggressive air. But with that, high toned notes of cardamom, cinnamon stick, orange marmalade, baked apple, lavender and perfumed oleander swirl from the glass. A bit flat on the palate but in no way dead. More mulling spices and apple. Mineral finish. I loved it.

    January 30, 2012 - - Yellow gold color - My numerical might be off for others, but this wine hits me perfectly. Elegant wine in the oxidizedish style. Enjoyed with and without food. Honey and blood orange. Clean finish, much richer on day 2 closer to room temp, but fine with a white wine chill too.

    April 11, 2011 - Interesting wine. Orange, slightly oxidized. Better on its own than with food (or at least what I was eating). Can't say I would get it again, but it's a good effort and I'm glad to have tried something unusual. Never had the vitovska grape before. Would recommend.

    March 26, 2011 - More masculine, tannic style. Robust and full, with a hard front and characteristic melon and floral notes. May benefit from some time.

    (SOLO MM4 Vodopivec) Vodopivec Dear Friends, The two wines below are very dear to my heart - so much so that I would place them on a pedestal held by the likes of Bressan. Discussed today by Antonio Galloni in the Hedonist's Gazette (he sampled one of the wines while out to dinner in Friuli), I will let your own imagination run wild as there is nothing I can put into words that will accurately describe these artisanal gems raised in amphorae like the ancient Romans. Two of Europe's finest wines and one of a kind...even for me. This parcel is directly from the source with perfect provenance: 2004 Vodopivec Vitovska 2004 Vodopivec IGT Solo MM4 (Vitovska) Both are EXTREMELY LIMITED - we cannot get a second parcel of either wine (it was like pulling teeth to get this parcel) Thank you, Jon Rimmerman Garagiste Seattle, WA Italy8231 Italy8232
