I used to love this wine. Has this producer gone downhill or could it just be an underwhelming bottle?

Petrol, plasticly, bitter finish. Missing fruit, minerality or much pleasure.

Yellow Apple, ripe pear, lemon, almond, perfume, and floral. Very aromatic. M acid and body. Citrus peel and lemon the palate. Short finish but refreshing. Great price point.

I think Vernaccia is generally underrated. Tuscany is not celebrated for its whites, but should be. Vernaccia is the only DOCG white from Tuscany. This gentle citrus, melony white with ripe pear is a summer pleasure.

Mango, muscat, limestone, jasmine, vanilla, clear and fresh aroma, vivid acid, a little sweetness, minerals, smooth and comfort after taste. Nice white.
