Interesting wine. Soft ripe stone fruits and fresh Hazelnuts on the nose with a toasted grain or even warm bread character that I often get from good Chenin Blanc. The wine has a lovely savory lees character that also gives great texture persistence on the palate. There is a nice balance of richness and tension which is something pretty remarkable for a bottle in this price point.

This is such a good deal for such a refreshing and fun wine. Aromas of pear with hints of white flower couched in an elegant plumpness balanced with fresh acidity and a lively and bright finish. With the warmer months ahead this is an ideal summer treat!
Drink from 2014 to 2016

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. 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. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
