Tasted with marvelous branzino with fresh herb and tomato “spring caponata,” this wine was an ideal embodiment in a glass of the “macchia,” the Italian version of the Rhône’s “garrigue.” Bright pear, apple, lemon and yellow plum with an underlying steely minerality and wonderful sensations of hay and salt air-tinged brush. Surprisingly juicy but also lean, it’s an ideal wine for fish — a month ago

This is a wine of intense subtlety. Deep golden color and tight, but medium acidity. The notes are complex and many, but they are not obvious. Starts with strong saline and brine. Then moves to mineral and stone, with underlying green apple, slight zest, and some minimal tropical notes. It packs a punch and requires a long time on the palate to fully open up and appreciate.

In a field of gorgeous Italian whites, this was a star. Lime zest, sea spray, white peach, yellow plum, apricot, honeysuckle, rosemary, sweet basil, on a medium plus body with medium plus acid and a long satisfying, lip-smacking finish — 4 years ago
