Preserved Meyer lemon, ripe apple, and a masterful balance of oak, minerality, and Lees makes this a real treat - much better on day two. At this price point stock up. With lobster and richer dishes this big complex ripe wine is a winner

Very pleasant. Not as complex as I remember from earlier vintages.

Ooh bah oom ba ba.robust but dainty majorettes holding down the somewhat-oaky doc here. Sooooo bright! Acid keen! Alcohol still potent but this is no...I don’t know the right metaphor. It’s good.

Powerhouse Umbrian Chard on steroids. Apricots, rich vanilla notes. Probably needed a decant but perfect match for Tuscan appetizers...and for sure tastes best on home field!

A perfect Chardonnay with great balance. Lovely stone fruit with hint of vanilla. I enjoy this crisp style. Worth the price

Excellent! 375ml bottle. Medium yellow color. Nose is huge with butter, honey, and maple syrup. Wine has medium plus thickness and some tartness on the finish. Definitely high quality, hence the expensive pricing. I enjoyed it!

Superb white from Antinori. Citric, with a complex bouquet of flowers, lemon and caramel. Structured, round and velvety. Produced not far from Orvietto, which makes me think of the souls raised to heaven in the Luca Signorelli frescos at the Duomo.

Mostly chard, lots of oak, good secondary flavors
