Not quite what I expected, but then again did I really know what I was expecting. Plush for the grape and almost fat as it warms up. Sweet stones and talcum powder early but this really broadens. Soft and easy but a little short , perhaps suggesting it's getting on a touch.
Colour: medium lemon Nose: Developing, clean, medium intensity, almonds, lemon, cream/yoghurt - lees? Slight green apple Mouth: Juicky pear, lemon citrus, almonds, medium plus body, medium finish. good
Nose: cream, almond - almost marzipan - but not sweet, touches of green apple, slight subdued medicinal herbs and a slaty minerality. Mouth: Quite savoury and neutral, still that nutty note but it is, for me, more about mouth feel which is large and round and filling underpinned by slight lees tones and a touch of bitterness that is not unpleasant or unduly obtrusive. The finish carries this body and flavour anonymity for quite a while... Nice
Great producer of Soave - this one lives up to the previous wines. Lots of pineapple, white flowers and minerals tempered with a cool, reserved style. Good balance between the sweet, full fruit and the cool minerality. Excellent as always.
This delightful Italian white wine is made of 100% Garganega grapes grown from very old vines in the Soave Classico region between Venice and Verona. Light yellow in color; this dry, medium -bodied wine has a grapefruit nose with citrus and green apple on the palate. Rich, balanced with a nice mouth-feel, this wine is delicious alone as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to white fish. Should be Ideal summer patio sipper. Nice acidity and 12% alcohol.
Clear medium lemon-yellow in the glass. Nose of citrus and apple with some spice and flowers. In the mouth: gentle citrus, apple, peach, spice; nice mineral component running through with good acidity and lush mouthfeel. Honey coming out on the long finish. Nice complexity and balance; very good value at under $18.
