  • I made a big mistake on this one. Needed some white wine in the early stages of preparing an asparagus risotto and took this out of the rack not knowing what it was nor who had gifted it to me. In the urgency of the moment, a third of the bottle went in before I tasted it (I know, that's embarassing in itself. Very bad practice to not taste before adding to a dish...). When my wife and I finally filled a glass, we discovered a really good wine. Intriguing nose of oranges and something good we could not name. My wife is not a white wine aficionada, perhaps because of the acidity and "tightness" of our local Swiss whites. This one charmed her immediately. Without being in any way sweet, it is rich and round, and draws you in. Even the casual drinker will stop a moment in pleasant surprise to try to figure out just what this is... I will definitiely try to buy more.

  • Mineral with apricots undertones. Medium plus body, balanced, creamy mouthfeel.

  • Light-medium straw colour. Pretty nose of wet stone, lime, acacia flowers, apricots, and a slight hint of honey. I'm really surprised by the weight and texture of this Vermentino, as Galloni's review notes that it's aged solely in steel. Replays from the nose are joined by petrol and minerals to the moderately-long, 35-40s finish that shows just a touch of heat. This is a really delicious wine, and way more than I was expecting. This would be absolutely fantastic with a nice fritto misto. Maybe 90 points isn't enough? Drink now.
