Had the 2016, and this 17 is probably a bit better. So so good. First, it's really not as acidic as I would like. Both a good and bad thing. When enjoying lighter fare without a lot of sauce or spice, this Berganorio is a perfect match. Comprised of 30% Procanico, 30% Grechetto, 20% Malvasia, 15% Verdelho, and 5% Drupeggio, this wine is mildly acidic up front, but balanced by lighter lemon, lime and grapefruit that morphs into a wine that is more weighted and mature than expected through the middle and finish. Although the notes are always on the lighter, more tropical side, the wine doesn't ever take a thin or uninspiring side. Although I will definitely say that I don't think this one is really intended to age. Well done Velette!

Wow, what a treat. Bro-in-law went to Italy and stopped here. Had a case shipped back. Wow this wine! Everything here is green! Pours a light pale yellow. Nose of herb amd lime, with a granny smith apple. Entry is grassy, apple, lime, pear, rosemary! Finishes with an acidic tart character that makes you want to keep drinking. This bottle disappeared in 10 minutes.
