2005 Schiopetto Pinot Bianco (Elsewhere $25)
Aromas of dried apple and honey, with hints of nutmeg. Full-bodied and intensely minerally, with lovely fruit, fresh acidity and a long finish. Drink now. 1,900 cases made.
Stone fruit, melon, white stone and a touch of lemon zest on the nose shape a wine with good dimension and persistency that ages on the lees for eight months. The mouthfeel is particularly attractive and skillfully achieved with an extremely soft and smooth quality. Pair it with pasta, fish, and chicken.
