A delicate and refined Soave with orange blossom, pink grapefruit and sushi ginger aromas and on the palate. A light-bodied Soave with a zippy finish.
Wine Enthusiast"Aromas of white wild flower and chamomile float out of the glass along with a whiff of orchard fruit. The ripe round palate offers juicy Bartlett pear, golden apple and peach. A note of bitter almond wraps up the finish." - K.O.
Vinous Media"Luminous straw yellow. Apple, pear and herbs on the fresh nose. Then bright and juicy, with delicious apple jelly, pear reduction and savory herb flavors lifted by orange and lemony nuances. Long and clean on the finish which offers sneaky concentration and a multilayered quality. This wine highlights Garganega’s pear and yellow fruit aromas and flavors, rather than sharp citrus or green nuances more typical of Sauvignon Blanc or of early harvested grapes." -Ian D'Agata
James Suckling"A white with a phenolic texture that gives the a lightly chewy sensation and lots of fruit. Medium to full body, tangy acidity and ripe fruit. Flavorful finish. Drink now."
