92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2008

($32) Pale yellow. Intense, complex nose opens slowly to offer accurate vari etal aromas of green apple, minerals, thyme and a hint of mint. Apple, nectarine, menthol and saline flavors emerge on the palate, with strong, bright acids giving them laser-like precision. Finishes very long and youthfully lean, with lingering flavors of lemon, pine needles and powdered stone. Clelia Romano's Fiano is always a high-acid wine, but this '07 will need even more time than usual to show what it's got: put it away for at least 12 to 24 months and then enjoy for another 8 to 10 years after that. One of the few Italian whites that really ages well.
