2018 Antonio Vallana Colline Novaresi Spanna
The scent of opening a fresh tootsie roll lollipop. As clear as day. Wrapped inside layers of dried fig, burnt brown butter, raisin and sage. Very bright and in your face, tangible like scents. Acid is still strong at this stage in the game that is bright and lingering. Fading mushroom and truffle notes pervade the palate as the tanins become intact, engaging and velvety. At it's prime but might even last longer, as is the case with all wines from this amazing producer.
