91 Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2008

($43; 100% garganega) Golden straw-yellow. Captivating aromas of sexy new vanillin oak, pineapple, orange marmalade, mango and custard. Ripe and soft in the mouth, stuffed with canned pineapple, caramel, yellow peach and orange marmalade flavors. Supple and full, with the fruit here showing much more pronounced sweetness than that of the steely Calvarino bottling. This too benefits from beautiful definition, and the finish is long and suave. This is a ripe and sexy style of Soave that relies quite a bit on its vanillin-oaky veneer for charm.
