Delicious wine limes, lemon, passion fruit, mango, so much more great acidity and slight salinity.

Really lean and mineral Ribolla. The most chiseled example from Vare vineyard that I can remember. Delicious.

Good wine, but didn't blow my doors off. Picked up a bit of the phenolic character from the skin contact, but wasn't overbearing. Wished for a bit more.
