“Classy aromatic profile of zesty citrus fruit, orange peel, and faint vanilla. Huskier, floral notes as it unfurls and opens up. The palate is austere, dry, and glistens with mineral notes. Impressive depth and balance to this.”
“Gives an attractive, modestly aromatic nose of citrus - notably golden apple, pear and some kiwi. Well balanced, with refreshing acidity, it offers mellow yellow fruit notes on the palate. Finishes smooth, and persistent.”
“Noticeably lighter than the late harvest ‘Facetus’, this shows attractive citrus fruit leading toward fleshy stone fruit. As a result of a 20% fermentation and six month maturation in new barrique it shows plenty of power and body. Strong alcohol and good levels of acidity. Some peach and melon on the finish, with restrained oak character. A juicy, succulent expression with good ageing potential.”
“Simple but pleasant aroma of apple and pair. Well balanced, fragrant. Modest weight to it, and certainly a good, approachable expression of Falanghina Beneventana. Clean finish, with very faint notes of almond.”
“Attractive golden colour, with an intense nose characterised by ripe peach and citrus rind. This is concentrated, with an oily texture. Acidity and alcohol have retreated into the background slightly and some faint, attractive notes of oxidisation creep through to deliver a succulent but mellow wine. An excellent accompaniment to blue sheep’s cheese or sweet pastries.”
