2nd day open with leftover lasagna. There is bret, but it really seems integrated if you can imagine that. It just seems to accentuate and lift some nice character. Pretty levels of VA as well. Bright aromas of sour cherry/candy, dried flowers/rose. Same on the palate with some herbs just yanked out of the ground with dirt still on them. Moderately tannic but with mouth-moistening acidity balancing it out. Structure and fruit profile actually reminds me of a Langhe or northern Piedmont Nebbiolo... But with bret. I had kind of been down on COS and Occhipinti recently, but this was nice.

This was bottle was a little unstable in its natural funkiness, but when it was temporarily on, it was on.

Pretty cool. Terra cotta amphora fermentation. A nose of cherry spiked herbs.

Through a veil of transparent berry fruit and delicate dried flowers the secondaries become the primaries: damp earth, mushroom tea, tomato leaves. Fine acidic structure.

Fresh, lovely, floral, and unique as fuck. One of the geekiest red wines I've ever had!

Extremely tart. Not nearly as good as the 2013.

What happened here? Fantastic prior vintages. This 2014 is frizzante, short, metallic and bitter. Scratching my head. Purchased at Eataly Boston.

Raspberry and potpourri on the nose, tastes of those things plus tart sour cherry and a kind of yeasty finish, a little bit too much so if you ask me. Acidity is abundant. Amphora aging leaves tannins slightly firm and fuzzy.
