Reviews and Ratings

The bouquet is moderately intense with some mineral notes mingled with slight cut flower pungency and underlying vegetal and honeysuckle accents. On the palate it’s bitter, with gunflint minerality supported by flinty acidity and some savory accents that flow into a fairly bitter mineral finish. I’d have liked a bit more fruit, which would have fleshed it out; it instead revolves around minerality, and if you like the style you will enjoy it, but you have to like the style. Score: 2 (out of 3). Source: Kyle Phillips, italianwinereview.com, April 2, 2013
