The Society's Community

Rapsani Terra Petra 2016



Hi Mark,
It is far from uncommon for wines to go through dumb periods, particularly in the spring. As the weather warms up, the wine can go into a form of hibernation. In most cases, if this happens, they will come out of it again after 2 or 3 months.


Thanks for taking the time to reply and for your thoughts, much appreciated. The first bottle that disappointed was opened in March 2015 and the other two months later ( after checking The Captain’s Log ! ). Very interesting.

One of the great things about a community like this is the chance to discuss what one thinks with like minded people and to gain further insight and knowledge as a result. Before joining I just used to have conversations with myself !
