90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale straw-yellow with some golden tones. Captivating, highly nuanced aromas of lemon zest, tangerine and white flowers complicated by strong mineral and chalky notes. Shows bracing acidity and real structure in the mouth, with a piquant lemony saltiness. This fascinating wine, one of Italy's most interesting whites, is usually better after two or three years in the bottle and can age up to a decade. With time it typically develops an uncanny bouquet of terpenes and other aromas that call to mind a riesling trocken from Germany, but with less obvious fruity acidity and a stronger herbal character."
