This is still young, and it has the sharp, vibrant acidity and fruit depth to warrant a good deal more aging, but it's so very impressive now with aromas of lemon, raw almond, pear, apple, lychee, and slate -- and indeed it is the balance of citrus and mineral that really makes this shine (reminiscent of a dry Mosel Riesling). The lemony acidity dominates the palate, but there's ample structure and savoury complexity to keep it contained. So very Italian, in the way of great Italian whites, and such a great value, this is a Soave that defies the region's poor reputation and builds its own.
