Without a doubt, this is one is the best white wines I've had. Immensely drinkable, it's refreshing without being boring, and flavorful without being heavy.

I love Soave, Soave Bola's success gave it a bad name, but man... when you come home from a crappy day of work, Soave is a good friend. 2013 vintage

Drank 8/15/18. Paired with salmon, but I think it would pair well with calamari, mussels, and lighter fare as well.

I believe this is 100% Garganega. Nose of stone fruits, with yellow peach and nectarine. Hints of musty earthy scents show as it warms. I preferred this one a bit cooler. Medium body with peach and lemon curd. Nice acidity on the refreshing, but relatively short finish. A more interesting pinot grigio alternative for fans of Italian white wine. Nice

3/22/7/4/2 + 50 = 88 pts.

Somewhat flabby, and quite creamy. Still delivers mixed nuts, salinity, and some citrus.

Light orange and stone fruits with a clean minerality in the background. Palate is ripe and supple but not heavy. Fresh, balanced and very drinkable

Lovely tropical and floral nose. Stone fruit on the palate with a floral finish. A touch of acidity to keep it from getting flabby. Great with roasted shrimp.
