Taste profile from the winemaker: None found.

ABC Wines review: Powerfully fragrant, this deeply yellow colored wine has aromas of citrus and tropical fruit with some honey notes. Full in the mouth, the fruit flavors are quite expressive. The incredibly long and somewhat herbal finish adds a mild acidity that is rounded out with a nut-like flavor (possibly due to oak cellaring?). Serve this wine with any fine Italian cuisine. Our score: Priced on the high side, but this is clearly a superior wine. Excellent.
