Skin fermented for 2 months in a concrete egg. Rather candied on the nose with intensely spicy and wooly aromas layered over notes of chalk, sassafras, a hint of nettle and earthy fruit. Broad in the mouth with a lovely early rush of fruit that is supported by lime acids. This is quite vibrant in the mouth, offering up subtly complex notes of herb tinged citrus fruits that are supported by a softly chalky tannic structure. This is complex and perfumed in the mouth, and while the finish is a bit short at first air does add length and a nice fullness to the lingering fruit flavors. There’s a fair amount of delicacy here and this is quite elegant. It would be interesting to see how this pairs with a complex nuanced dish like Vitello Tonnato. 88pts
