|TASTING NOTE: ... only very recently bottled ... and done entirely up with a wild, indigenous ferment. Youth calls out as the understatement in where this sits ... Citrus never had it so good in Picone and aridity is a five letter word. That word is not yet written but should see to utterance and put to paper in a year or so. For now this needs some fat in your diet, like pork belly or some particularly sharp charcuterie. Drink 2020-2025. Score - 92 (Michael Godel, winealign.com, Oct. 29, 2016)
