Vintage Notes
91 points Antonio Galloni's Vinous - Brilliant yellow. Ripe citrus fruit and melon qualities on the nose, along with hints of peach and pungent flowers. Lively pear and Meyer lemon flavors show very good depth and a jolt of spiciness on the back half. A sweet vanilla nuance emerges on the sharply focused and persistent finish, which also reveals a spicy touch of ginger. 30% new French oak.
