Wine Review: This solid Italian expression of Sauvignon Blanc is straw colored in the glass, with matchstick, peach, tangerine, celery leaf and chive aromas. On the palate, it is medium bodied, with a firm round mouthfeel, and medium-plus acidity. It is dry and has good balance. There are flavors of white peach, flinty minerality, pink grapefruit, gooseberries, and fresh green herbal notes. It finishes dry with grassy notes. It was terrific with my fried scallop dinner. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: Straw yellow in color with light green tints. The aroma is rich and complex with notes of yellow bell pepper, tomato leaf, and sage. This wine is dry with great body and a long, aromatic finish. Ideal when consumed young. If stored well, its gains character over time and can age for 3 to 4 years. Pair with charcuterie, asparagus quiche, and vegetable dishes.
