Unctuous. When down way too quick. We really dug this wine. Has some oak but worked out well.

Winery is near Lucca. Crazy former backwaters of wine production. Vermentino. BioD. Sea salt, fennel seed, yellow apple. Second day. Crunchy acid, med-acid. 2011 is drinking beautifully. Wishing I had swordfish crudo on hand.

Funky white blend with yellow apple, apple juice, quince, unripe yellow peach, apricot, racy acidity, bitter almond aftertaste. A touch of saltiness at the end. Long finish. A good white wine.

A smoothly balanced white wine, this Vermentino dominant blend did not impress as hoped. It was too restrained on nose and palate to create a good experience. Perhaps, other vintages show better than the 2011. It might pair with a mild fish, however.
