Lovely full-bodied balanced. Chablis crossed my mind tasting blind.

Citrus acidity, malo richness, loooong finish, salinity, minerality, beautiful dried herbal note. Really should have aged this maybe 3-4 years. Exquisite.

An outstanding Italian white, I just had to taste again. 100% Carricante grown in deep volcanic soil, aged in French oak for 10 months . Pale lemon with aromas of stone and citrus fruits and honeysuckle blossom. On the palate flavors of apple, apricot and lemon citrus with creamy vanilla wrapped in generous acidity, long finish ending with wet stone minerality. Nice, consistent quality.

Really evolved from open to finish. Started very light and linear mineral, opened up into a broad, Rich, oily drink. Light lemon flavors throughout, but the lava really came through late. Yummy and interesting but less delicious than other vintages of Vigna niche I recall...

Probably best of the single vineyard lineup. Still has good minerality and citrus character, but also a fleshy white fruit lingers on the palate

This was a great find. I’ve had their reds, but never their white. Great body. Minerals and honeycomb, with hints of Meyer lemon. This was so good now, and looking forward to one with some age.

Really clean crisp white, but had some body to it. Will drink again.
