Blind Tasted By A Three Judge Panel
"Wonderfully fine-milled, lifted and complex, with perfume-like flavours over a creamy, plush base. It's just astonishing to stick your nose into the glass and find something so alluring, lustrous and enticing; you couldn't not sip after sniffing this. It's concentrated, dense, poised and assured; such a wholly extraordinary wine that it almost seems to come from a different tasting. But what this proves is just what extraordinary results you can achieve with appassimento, and though there are other wines in this tasting which have similar levels of concentration, and perhaps even more fruit intensity, for texture, precision and absolute stylistic assurance, this is hard to beat.
