88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - February 2013

(12% alcohol):  Pale straw-green.  Bright, effusively fruity nose is redolent of green apple, pear and sage.  Similarly fresh in the mouth, with juicy citrus and pear flavors that could use a bit more intensity but linger nicely.  Though less concentrated than the 2011 (Cataldi's best ever), this is still an outstanding wine for the price.  Easygoing but bright and long, and very food-friendly.  Everyone talks about Cataldi Madonna's Pecorino (and rightly so) but this trebbiano is his most improved wine in recent years.
