D’elezione vecchie vigne, top 5 bottles on the list I’ve been meaning to taste. Very surprising and not disappointing! Resembling Beaujolais Cru much more than any Italian wine (color aside) it starts dominated by fresh herbal tones, minty, zesty, hidden under a thin layer of natural funk. The palate is dominated by bright acidity, turned earth, perhaps small berries, very light and fine tannins. Still shy and quite elegant. I wish I could say I’d spend $160 on it, but still awesome to taste a piece of winemaking history

Rustic. Bretty, but appropriate. Black cherry, plum, crunchy dry fall leaves, balsamic, old leather, barnyard.

A lot of VA. Def needs to decant more. Cherry and herbs. Wild strawberries. Very tannic. Have always wanted to try this, didn’t live up to expectations.... I’m probably to fault, saw it on the wine list and wanted to try it. Didn’t have enough time to open up.

Great wine, but way to young. Yet interestingly cool and sophisticated.
