Our review: Deep gold in color, this wine exhibits soft tropical fruit aromas of pineapple, melon, even a little banana. Of moderate body and very fruitful on the palate, there is a good balance to the acidity introduced. The finish is smooth with a touch of spice.

Our rating: We rarely purchase older wines; to be honest, we neglected to check the vintage on this when we bought it and likely would have passed it by had we noticed. But it seems to have aged well, and we enjoyed it very much. Sauvignon blancs from Italy are not commonly found here, but this one is rather different and Above Average.
