94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2014
Bright straw-green. Complex, inviting aromas of nectarine, peach, spearmint, gin and white flowers are complicated by crystalline minerality. Suave, smooth and focused, with white stone fruit and minty green apple flavors enlivened by a laser beam of nicely integrated acidity. The pristine finishing nectarine and gin flavors linger impressively. This beauty isn't even from a particularly strong vintage, so you can understand why I say that it's wines like this one that make me believe that Clelia Romano's fiano is one of Italy's greatest white wines.
