Corti brothers recommendation. Great white with a subtle carbonation. Not too sweet or dry — a month ago
Really lovely blend from top producer in custoza. A lot of innovation going on here with owner hiring 4 consultants. He freezes the Fernanda grape prior to fermentation to maximize the aromatics. Very good and recommended. — 23 days ago
A nice golden color with a tart aroma of apple-lemon and minerality. Flavors of minerals, chalk, smoke, and flint. It also has a slight salty taste. Quite nice. — 13 days ago
16.5+. Very serious Garganega, with depth and M+ length. Good VFM. — 10 days ago
Not your everyday soave - more in burgundy style. Tasty! — a month ago
Tart. Walnut, honey, pear, peach, lemon zest, blood orange — a month ago
Good entry level amarone with a good amount of oak some unbalanced high alcohol that would please most folks for a fair price. — 23 days ago
Very nice entry level Soave from Tamellini. Light golden color with green hues. Nose is bit shy at firdt but opens up to ripe apple and some peach notes complemented by herbs and white currant. On palate this is nicely balanced with apple, lenon ang grspe notes, slight mineral vein coming up toward the end. Slight sweetness balances the acidity well. Makes me want to try the more serious bottlings which I think is a calling card for a great entry level wine. Seriously good stuff for the price — a month ago
