After some heavy reduction early on (screw cap?), reveals some lovely fruit and shimmering minerality. Tart stone fruit, sea spray and Asian pear are all wonderful, but it’s the remarkable mouthfeel of this wine that makes it memorable. Minerals, zest and acid are abundant but they attack the palate gracefully and reveal a surprisingly amount of richness.

A very mineral driven wine. Meyer lemon, orange blossom, ripe tangerine, jelly, hint of honey, slight corn notes, maybe a little oak treatment. Chalk and crushed rocks really stands out. Obvious lees contact. Bitterness, bright acid, slight oily texture. Some heat on the finish.

One of my favorite soaves. Bright and minerally citrus and white peach flavors make for the perfect hot weather sipper.

For the price, an excellent drinker. Poolside sipper with great limestone and lemon tart acidity. Went with a variety of brunch fare extremely well. Finishes with good grip. Not overly complex but what it does, it does extremely well. Going to try to seek out a case of this.

Very good. Great acidity with an almost tropical fruit nose and flavors. Pretty fantastic for Pieropan’s base Soave

Golden in color. Tastes of apple and citrus. Light and lively on the palate. A great bargain and a lovely wine.

Lemon cheese oak. Yum. Always our standby for first course Italian.

Meyer lemon, golden pear. Mid- body, very fresh, clean and pleasantly tart finish.
