Tried the 07 last year and was blown away. This 08 was less enthralling but also might really benefit from another year or two in the bottle. On opening the fruit was muted and acidity disjointed, just didn't feel very well knit. Full bodied, with nice typical saline quality of Le Marche whites, powerful acidity, little oak influence.
After an hour or so the delicate white peach and lychee fruits emerged, and on day 2 the wine was a more unified experience. Lemon curd and white flowers as it warmed up. 88 now, but I think could really be exceptional in 2 years. Decant out of the fridge for an hour. Do not serve ice cold.
Almost golden colour. On the nose honey and a cool, nice floral bouquet . The wine is dry with a good acid structure and a very fruity taste with apricot, honey melon, pineapple, green apple. Paired well with gravlax and sweet rye bread!
