“Bright medium yellow-gold. Pungent muscaty aromas of pink grapefruit, orange blossom, rose petal and minty cinnamon, lifted by jasmine. In the mouth, the fruit-driven flavors of green papaya and grapefruit are a little less intense than some past vintages of this wine. Finishes smooth and round, with a lingering lavender nuance. For the money, this is always one of Italy’s top dry aromatic whites, and usually a 90-pointer. This ’09 misses out on an outstanding score only because it could use a little more verve and crispness, but I’m probably splitting hairs.” – Ian d’Agata
