Reviews 99 points Wine Advocate "...opens to distinctive intensity with floral notes backed by forest berry and bramble. Including the grape stems in fermentation imparts a slightly herbaceous character with eucalyptus and balsam herb. I also pick up on some freshly milled white pepper that reminds me of the Nebbiolo-adjacent Pelaverga grape that is also commonly planted in Verduno. The wine opens slowly to reveal grilled herbs, toasted chia seed and pistachio nut. More than obvious fruit, the core of the wine offers wild rose, lavender and pressed flowers. (ML)" 95 points John Gilman "The bouquet is deep, elegant and pristinely ripe, jumping from the glass in a blend of cherries, red plums, gamebird, camphor, chalky soil tones, just a touch of sweet stems, roses, a hint of nutskin, woodsmoke and a gentle, but complex array of fresh herb tones in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and utterly seamless, with a sappy core of fruit, great mineral drive and grip, firm, buried and suave tannins and a long, tangy, complex and supremely elegant finish.
