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 — a year ago

Ü Pastine Portofino Bianchetta Genovese 2015

Very good, though perhaps past its prime a bit and starting to show a little less character than I'd like. A nice acidity to match it's sunny yellow hue, taste of lemon rind and citrus, medium body, with a lot of rocky minerals and terrain. It is nice to have a wine focus on minerality vs fruit forward compounds. Hope to score a bottle of this a bit younger next time. — 6 months ago

Thoroughly enjoyed the Ciliegiolo varietal in Rapallo, Italy. Cherry is in the name, and most certainly on the palate. — 2 years ago
