94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - February 2013

Pale straw-green.  Knockout aromas of quince, pear, white peach and white flowers are complicated by lemony minerality on the vibrant, captivating nose.  Rich and broad on entry, then explosive in the middle palate, saturating the mouth with bright, lively floral and fresh citrus flavors that are intensified by penetrating acidity.  Finishes extremely long and creamy-rich, expanding to coat the palate and teeth with lingering white peach and floral flavors.  The bright acidity conveys an almost weightless mouthfeel to this seamless, rich, extremely concentrated wine.  You can tell that owner Fabio Marchionni studied white wine in Germany.  This is but one of many outstanding vintages for this wine.  Let me be clear:  I think it is probably Italy's single greatest white wine buy.

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.
