Cà de Noci – Villa Favorita 2015

DeFratelli 2011
Nice cidery oxidative notes. Bright crunchy freshness, a bit nervous at the moments, very late textural notes.

Nottediluna 2013
Nice and fresh with a hint of stink on the nose, very crunchy yet a little quiet at the moment.

2014 Querciole
Not showing aromatics yet. Wonderfully bold yet lots of finesse, very long and lovely texture.

2014 Tre Dame
A little floral, it lovely spice notes, bright red fruits a bit sour, wild to be sure, showing that funkiness much earlier in this vintage.

Gheppio 2009
Wild earthy foxy chocolate stinkiness. Nice tight ness and focus, not showing as much dirtiness on the palate, slightly mellow.

Campagni di Viaggio 2008
Looking super intense bold and some carob notes.

Aresco 2010
Lovely salty caramel muscaty notes, exceptionally fresh. Really bright and crunchy acids.

Ca’ de Noci – 9/06/2014

De Fratelli 2010
Beeswax citrus herbs, lively on the palate, wild dry savoury and open. Beeswax comes late on the palate, vibrant and fresh, absolutely outstanding.

Querciole 2013
Clean bright colour, more fruit on the nose, less skin contact character. More fruit sweetness but also more volatility.

Nottediluna 2012
Very much in the cider realm, gorgeous fresh and complex, vibrant aromatic, lovely fruit generosity, what a cracker of a wine.

Querciole 2006
Very savoury nutty aroma, darker colour, round soft gentle, savoury nutty and cheesy.

Sottobosco 2013
Quite raw and rustic nose, stinky and funky. Meaty tannins, very dark but nice softness of fruit.

Gheppio 2009
Really wild and complex to the point of being difficult. Somehow delicious and very savoury.

Serafino 2011
Soft generous tannins, bold yet round and long, a fuller more mellow red wine.

Camillo Donati – 9/06/2014

Trebbiano 2013
Bright intense honey herbed fruit, lovely talkiness and volatility. Nice fruit evolution across the palate, vibrant fresh style, quite clean with a hint of savoury.

Malvasia Rosa 2013
A bit darker than the 2010, a bit deeper and more closed on the nose. Bolder fruit, juicier too, a bit of sweetness but some nice herb character, vibrant now but will settle.

Lambrusco 2012
Really interesting tightness, very dry but fresh, some lovely sweet dark fruit on the back palate. Doesn’t scream natural wine, in fact on the lean side, very pleasant wine.

Barbera 2012
Fruitier more approachable nose, juicy soft and round yet focused. Very moreish, depends food but also fresh enough to encourage appetite.

Rosso della Bandita 2013 (four undisclosed red varieties)
Quite aromatic but closed and very young, wonderfully fresh, dry soft energetic, very lithe.
