Full-bodied, slightly smoky, lingering bitter lemon finish.

Always love these Ligurian whites! This one smells of lemon thyme, cucumber and hay on a hot summer day. Finesse with just enough suppleness on the palate=happy harmony.

Delicate fennel and flowers with a pleasing bitter note on the finish. The star of the Bisson tasting.

At L'Apicio, Joey Campanele's delicious new Italian spot... Who would have thought this stuff would ever make it to the Bowery...

My first 100% Bianchetta, which is typically used as a blending grape in Liguria. Full bodied and waxy. Great texture that really grabbed me. Crisp and saline. Like a Muscadet on steroids. Perfect with steelhead trout.

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.

Tastes like the Cinque Terre! Light. Airy. And slightly floral. Nice zest to it
