April 15, 2014 - Picked this bottle up yesterday at a great little Mom & Pop Enoteca in Montegrosso (outside of Asti, great shop) for 13€. On PnP, full straw toward gold color, clear and bright - think GC Chablis with 5 years on it. Nose of honey, ghee, linen, and freshly cut white floral; very pretty. By the second glass, minerals, river rocks, herbs and seaspray. Rather complex for a MT, and unequivocally quite beautiful. Malic presence on the palate, with malo elements as well. The lighter side of medium, with some stony bitterness, followed by a creamy blend of orchard, citric and slightly tropical flavors. Anselmet is always a treat, and while it's hard for me to get excited about anyone's Muller-Thurgau, this comes pretty close. Just 12,0% abv, and made with good purity and focus. recommended, drink thru 2016.
