Clean, fresh, pure, penetrating, pretty aromas then quite sweet obviously made in a late harvest style, almost like a lighter Recioto. Palate has hints of smoky minerality. A lovely wine; long and fresh, but this has more in common with Alsace than it does dry Soave.
Mid lemon gold. Pungent nose of herbs and citrus aromas with hints of wax and honey. Oak receding on palate; .full, round and juicy with coconut and butterscotch notes from the oak. Very good acid gives length and presence to the finish.
Jane Hunt MW
Some citrussy notes on the nose – quite fruity in fact – but over-shadowed by a combination of oak and some sweetness. The alcohol seems very overblown and makes the wine seem overripe. Not keen. Drink quickly.
