Taste profile from the winemaker: None found. There is no mention of this wine on the company's website.

ABC Wines review: A light straw in color this wine has a pleasing fragrance of pear, melon, honey and spice with floral notes. The palate is moderately full bodied with tropical fruit flavors that taper into an herbal, somewhat vegetal character. The finish is smooth and unusually long. Pair this wine with vegetable or tomato dishes, or serve with Asian cuisines. Our score: This is a terrific wine that is priced very attractively. Above Average, nearly Excellent.

Winery website: Vinos Pisano. An image of the bottle or the label could not be found.
