2010 Pacherhof Sylvaner Valle Isarco (Elsewhere $23)

SKU #1118457 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Pale straw color with a hint of green. Crystallized stone fruits, exotic herbs, lemon verbena and flowers on the nose. Juicy, fruit-driven flavors of lemon, quince, pear and apricot are given grip and verve by sound acidity. Long and fresh on the aftertaste.  (10/ 2011)

89 points Wine Spectator

 Creamy in texture and framed by mouthwatering acidity, this offers flavors of yellow peach, kumquat and pink grapefruit. Hints of almond and fleur de sel add complexity, while the finish is fresh and lingering. Drink now through 2015.  (5/ 2012)

K&L Notes

A stellar deal from this legendary Italian winery. Sylvaner is a variety primarily known in Alsace and the Franken region of Germany, but has found a home here in Trentino-Alto Adige as well.

Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.
