My first still Pignoletto and I loved it. Quite savory and mineral.

Slightly cloudy gold color (unfiltered) with lime zest, honeysuckle,and stone fruit aromas. On the palate, it's full-bodied, fresh, and very persistent with a wonderfully supple texture. Flavor-wise it shows white peach, lime, honey, and a suggestion of persimmon flavors with a long mineral laced finish. Bottled unfiltered. Battonage during 6 months sur lie aging in large oak casks impart some complexity and a wonderful creaminess. 13% alcohol

One of the most delicious whites I've had in a long time. Delicate fleshy mouth feels of white peach to start. Silky on the palette. Crisp slightly zesty finish with a drop of honey. Divine.

Full bodied and complex white wine. Crisp and zesty defined taste that is still very drinkable. Paris well with white meats. Suggest that you let it breathe about 20min upon opening, then flavors become more distinct.
