Medium lemon color with developing aromas of apple, toast, butter, vanilla, lemon, blossom and nectarine. Dry, medium alcohol, medium (+) acidity, medium body. Pronounced flavors of toast, apple, pear, peach, and vanilla. Long finish. Very good quality. Drink now, but has potential for further aging.

Very well made Fuisse. No signs of age at all. Texturally appealing with youth still on its side.

Wonderfully fresh with strong food pairing potential. Subtle mineralty and light citrus.

Citrus fruit, vanilla and cheese. Dry with medium + acidity and a great creamy texture that's incredibly clean and refreshing. Palate really follows the nose on this one. Delightful.

Pale lemon color. Vibrant acidity. Aromas and flavors of dried lemon, grass, green apple. Long finish. Still had potential to improve with age.

Good but not worth the price. Some good Chardonnay flavors up front , with vanilla and toasted flavors, but the finish has too much alcohol.
