Expert Reviews

90? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2011

($18) Medium-deep yellow-gold. Musky, rich aromas of ginger, passion fruit, pear and white flowers. Then uncommonly rich and densely packed, with earthy pear and tea leaf flavors lifted by a floral note. Finishes with a long, velvety, almost unctuous mouthfeel but picks up a strongly vegetal green streak and mounting tannins at the back. Still, I was very impressed by this wine's concentration.. This is the second native grape included in the Adriatico lineup of wines. The wine is made by Bastianich and Emilio Del Medico, with the consulting help of Maurizio Castelli.
