Yum. It keeps evolving over two hours. Peach, apricot and clove complimented by hazelnut and quince. This is a heavyweight wine with a ton of elegance. It's great today but it could also use 5 years in the cellar to realize its full potential

Bracing acidity, nose of petrol and tropical fruits, guava and fresh mango on the palate. A bit reminiscent of the sunny Rheingau region for a dry German Riesling.

La Rocca, made from 100% Garganega and aged for 15 months in large barrels. Bright intense yellow with aromas of tropical fruits and gentle oak notes, rich and complex. On the palate apple and orange zest with nutty flavors and vivid acidity. Smooth and elegant the wine ends with oak, mineral notes and gentle spice. Tasting Sample.

An Italian Classic & showing well despite its 6 years age. A lesson in how to make great Soave with body yet freshness.

Great palate refresher after blind tasting CA Chardonnays. Full-bodied yet crisp, lemon custard, bright minerality, saline
