As luck would have it, I have actually had this wine on two occasions. I liked it as a good high-acidty food wine. Smell was of green apple and taste followed suit. I enjoyed it paricularly with crab legs. A little too tart on the second occasion when I drank it as an aperitif.

Old world styled Wine. Aromas of white peach, citrus and green apple. It is clean on the palate and is beautifully balanced with fresh acidity. Very, very good.

This is an extremely rich, fruity, substantial, complex wine. A true gem.

Bright acidic aromas of apple and orange peel. Similar bright and lively flavors on the palate. I love acidity in wine, but this is bit over the top, not by much though.

This wine has a beautiful golden color, a pleasant floral nose, and a velvety mouthfeel. It's modest, very much in the old world style, fresh tasting, a great pairing with the seafood and pasta dishes that are native to the region from where it is from. http://bit.ly/h9j0G6

A white wine that's both full and bright. A great deal, and I'm going to get more. (Especially because one of the bottles I got is corked -- at least I didn't have friends over tonight.)

So at the reduced price of 8 bucks I figured I would try this, and since there’s been some chatter about it of late. I’d say I found it to be good, not great. PNP and found the acidity beyond prevalent; almost abrasive. That said, after allowing this to sit in the glass for a bit, bringing it close to room temp (props to ecola), it mellowed quite a bit, to reveal notes of citrus, apple, mineral, as well as a floral aspect. Enjoyable, but just that. Now,... is there a cab in house? ...

I suppose we all have different palates, but I didn't get the aggressive acidity that others found - for me it was bright and vibrant, but very well balanced and a killer deal at the sale price of $8. Aroma is very sweet – like a candied mango or citrus peel. Palate features a plethora of interesting flavors, including flowers, peaches, green apple, citrus liqueur, yet the slate/mineral notes on the finish keep it from tasting as sweet as it smells. A great buy for those interested in trying new varietals that taste truly unique. http://bit.ly/HFWP5P

Italian whites are certainly more varied than I thought. Didn't get the intense acidity either but didn't have until it was opened a day. Floral, peachy nose. Gorgeous color. The flavors were apple & yeast (even a sensation of stale beer on the finish). Minerality kind of flattened out the finish, although it was long. High QPR at $8.
