A dense and layered white with sliced cooked apples, mangoes and hints of dried lemons. Exotic undertones, too. Full-bodied, tight and focused with minerality and precision. Drink or hold.

This comes from a six-acre block in the Adrianna Vineyard, at elevations reaching 4,600 feet in Gualtallary. The soil is chalky, with a layer of sand, the wine translating the region’s heat into unctuous notes of white fruit. The acid structure is impressive, supporting the wine’s ripeness with tense freshness while the fruit flavors fill in every corner of the mouth. Today it’s a perfect white for a grilled halibut steak; with five years in the bottle, it will gain much more in complexity.
