2009 Riecine Improvvisazione No1

September 15, 2014

Name:Improvvisazione No1
Type:Red Wine
Varietal:Pinot Noir
Region:Italy / Toscana

This is a mystery to me. A Pinot Noir experiment from the typically Sangiovese focused house. It seems to have nothing wrong with it, except it doesn’t have much right with it either. Very tight and almost non-existent nose, awkward (yet, weirdly elegant) texture and flavor profile and a feeling of bafflement at the end. It might be in its reclusive cycle and I am keen to give it more chances later, but at this point – it’s better off in the bottle.
