Tasting notes on the wine:

"Give it a taste and you'll see this wine is packed with plums, cooked cherries, raspberries, and blackberries mix with aromas of sage, thyme, and perilla leaves (!!!) with balanced tannins. It’s silk stocking-like; nothing sticks out. For pairing, give me roasted chicken with glazed carrots and almond slices! Leftover turkey with sage stuffing on white toast would also taste fancy when paired with this wine. Or try it with soondae Korean boudin noir wrapped in perilla leaves and have your mind blown." — Seung Hee Lee

About the winemaker: 

"This organic estate covers two rolling hills in the Piedmont region of Italy. Half of their land is under vine of the 43 hectares in total." — Mysa
