#6 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2019
Return to List

Lemon drop candy, apricot, crushed stone, bitter almond and beeswax are just some of the aromas you'll find on this intriguing, classy wine, the 45th anniversary edition of what is one of Italy's most iconic whites. The savory, elegant palate is focused and bright, delivering ripe white stone fruit, citrus, tangy mineral and a hint of baking spice. It's impeccably balanced, with bright acidity. Enjoy now or hold for even more complexity. Drink through 2031. Kerin O’Keefe
