The nose is fascinating, offering tropical fruit in toasty pastry, roasted chestnuts, and honeysuckle. The palate is just as complex and curious, with guava, lime, toasted nuts, and hints of mineral and earth. Guava and chestnuts linger forever.This is a marvelous wine, rich, round, throwing waves of flavors and aromas. Drink with spaghetti alle vongole. Highly Recommended. 92 points. DBH

About The Author

David Honig

David Honig, the Publisher, looked at what was happening in the world of wine journalism and realized there were a lot of great writers out there at the same time paying publications, from newspapers to websites, were dropping like flies. So he created Palate Press to find the best writers and create a new forum for them to sell their best work. He is a self-educated oenophile, and defers to the tremendous experience and wisdom of the amazing staff at PALATE PRESS: The Online Wine Magazine.
