Probably just at its prime, a crisp and refreshing wine served with mushroom risotto and lemon caper piccata. Tastes of citrus, tempered with a slight oaky undertone, it perfectly complemented both the lemon and the chicken stock. Note that I rated 85, which is a good but not very good or excellent wine. I would buy again.
More body than usual for a Soave, bordering on the meaty. Nice balance of flavors. Very pleasant to drink and better than expected without any real defects. Other community notes suggest high inconsistency in this bottling as the reason some tasters rate the wine highly, while others find it very deficient. I doubt such a spread can be attributed only to the different perceptions of individual tasters, which of course are always present. I have the 2012 bottling on hand, which will be interesting to compare. Meanwhile, I would get this wine again if for no other reason than to see if my high estimation holds up on a second drinking.
