Expert Reviews

90 Points | International Wine Cellar , November 2009

Pale straw-yellow.  Fascinating, inviting aromas and flavors of apple, pear and dusty herbs, complicated by a suggestion of redcurrant.  Suave on entry, then concentrated and broad in the middle, with atypical palate presence for vernaccia.  Round but quite dry, with an extra textural dimension that comes from stirring of the lees in large oak casks.  Finishes with excellent youthful grip and sneaky length.  This should be very flexible with fish dishes or white meats.  (ST)

Super Tuscan?
10/21/2011
by FrankJBN
Alright, not what is generally thought of as a "Super Tuscan", but this is a super Italian white, probably the best of that breed for me. A big "rich" wine that went very well with a menu of mostly fish dishes along with quail balsamico with mushrooms and parmesan polenta (it really shone with the quail dish). I think this wine could easily stand alone. A fine alternative to more common whites.
WOW!!!

About Italy

Italy, like France, offers a world of wine styles within a single country: dry Italian white wines ranging from lively and minerally to powerful and full-bodied; cheap and cheerful Italian red wines in both a cooler, northern style and a richer, warmer southern style; structured, powerful reds capable of long aging in bottle; sparkling wines; sweet wines and dessert wines.
