Wonderful mineral quality. Just a touch acidic and dry. Well balanced, this is a great wine to drink while dipping Italian bread in olive, balsamic vinaigrette and bruschetta.

Dry, viscous yet very easy to drink with a lovely apricot note that shows up after some airing. This wine has the extract to age.

This is my go-to wine here at Confetti in Piermont NY (home). Has the nose and body of a chard with the brightness and acidity of a Vermentino...just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!

One of my favorite vintages of this wine to date. Had more ripe flavors and a better concentration of it, more ample acidity (not volatile), and much more aromatics than some previous vintages. Honeysuckle, peaches, white flowers, candied lemon, orange blossom. Very nice wine to have during spring time with a nice tart.

Would be nice paired with a fruit, nut and cheese plate. Not necessarily my taste....would also pair nicely with a peach tarte or something like that

Straw with fruity aromas. Pear, honey and apricot flavors with some citrus tucked in. Medium body, ends with mineral notes. Good value.

Great little wine from Campania to keep around. Went perfectly with a simple Aglio e Olio recipe. Soft florals on the nose - orange zest, white peaches, and honeysuckle. The pallet is Citrusy, bright, and slightly creamy/oily in mouth feel - Meyer lemon and mineral notes.

Golden straw on the eye, medium viscosity. Nose sees sweet white flowers, apricots, honey. Palette sees more apricots, caramelized honey, apples, citrus, and healthy medium++ acidity. Really enjoyed this nostalgic reminder of our time in Canpagnia barely a month ago...
