Community Tasting Notes 20

    September 3, 2013 - Stony fruit, high-toned acid with a whiff of VA, a very slight sherried/madeirized note, and a great mouthfeel. More tannic bite than I expected. This bottle striikes me as fresher than some of the notes below, with fruit tending more toward the red spectrum with some citrus notes, but no bruised apple or pronounced maltiness. Spectacular with high-umami food, here a wild mushroom pasta.

    Referring to Ribolla orange wines, Levi Dalton remarked that they reminded him of "white Nebbiolo". I totally get that, though I believe this to be mostly of Trebbiano. It specifically brought to mind various Alpine Nebbioli like Antoniolo's Gattinaras and Ferrando's Caremas. The panoply of flavors and very slight oxidative note suggest something like a Lopez Rosado. Perhaps a bit of a Poulsardian quality here, too. Unusual, yes, but very tasty and an excellent foil for food.

    April 30, 2011 - Nice orange wine, but not a crazy as others. Tangerine, a touch of spritz, and some maltiness like a belgian beer. lacking a little verve?

    November 14, 2010 - My first orange wine. Malty on the nose, citrus and almond notes on the palate. Incredible depth and layers of flavors. Slightly oxidized, but not too much. This was great.
