Ratings   Vintage Source Flavors
WineEnthusiast - 82 Details: A bit oily in texture, with hints of lemon and melon flavors. Fairly simple. 2002 WineEnthusiast
Tastings - 80 Details: Brilliant straw-almost colorless hue. Very faint, apple and metallic aromas. Light body with just a trace of fruit and a clean, very short, undistinguished finish with moderate acidity and a trace of fruit 2002 Tastings lemon, melon
WineEnthusiast - 82 Details: A deep gold color sends up warning flags, and the flavors bear that out. Has simple apple flavors with a touch of shellac and no depth. Kosher. 2000 WineEnthusiast
WineEnthusiast - 85 Details: Refreshing, and zesty, this is a good afternoon sipper or predinner drink. It’s light, dry and crisp, with tangy lemon-grapefruit aromas and flavors that may be too sharp for some, but we like the kick. 1999 WineEnthusiast
WineEnthusiast - 86 Details: From Italy’s workhorse white, a lean, tart, everyday wine suitable for a wide variety of purposes due to its clean, tingly acidity. Aromas and flavors are of minerals and herbs, just veering into lemon juice, and it’s utterly dry. If ever a wine cried out for food, it’s this one. Kosher, too. 1998 WineEnthusiast

Wine Terms

Name Value
Italy Makes nearly as much wine as France, but lags behind in their classification system. As a result, Italian wine isn’t taken as seriously as French wine. Most Italian wine is made from native grape varieties that don’t grow well elsewhere, such as Nebbiolo and Sangiovese. The most important regions are Piedmont, where Barolo and Barbaresco dominate, Tuscany, home to Chianti, Montepulciano, and the Super-Tuscans (a collection of relatively new reds), and the Northeastern region, where you’ll find Soave, Valpolicella, and Bardolino. Italy’s soils and climates are varied and ideally suited for viticulture, from the Alpine foothills in the north to the Mediterranean coast in the South. Its hilly landscape provides sun and cooler temperatures, even in the warmest regions. Italy has two categories of fine wines. DOCG, which means regulated and guaranteed place name, refers to a small group of elite wines. DOB wines are those with regulated (but not guaranteed) place names. A lower tier of table wines are grouped into IGT wines, which indicate the location on the label, and ordinary table wines, which carry no geographical indication except, “Italy.”
Pinot Grigio (pee noh GREE joe)—also known as Pinot Gris, is grown mostly in northeastern Italy but is also found in Germany (where it is called Rülander), Alsace, Oregon and California. It is deeper in color than other white grapes and has a medium body and low acidity.
Veneto The home of some of Italy’s most famous wines, this area in the Northeastern quadrant of Italy produces Soave, Valpolicella and Prosecco.
