2019, POGGIO Alle Gazze Dell Ornellaia Toscana, BIANCO

$78
78% Sauvignon Blanc, 16 % Vermentino, 6% Verdicchio

The 2019 Poggio alle Gazze is bright and beautifully sculpted in this vintage. Lemon peel, white flowers, apple and exotic floral notes are nicely delineated. This is an especially perfumed edition of Poggio alle Gazze. Lime, green apple and exotic floral notes lead into the super-expressive finish. 92/100 Antonio Galloni

This is enjoyable, it has an attractive kick and a savoury herb edge. As it opens the register changes and deepens, with white pear and apple blossom that add interest and a succulent depth alongside the Sauvignon Blanc-dominated citrus and asparagus. Axel Heinz and Olga Fusari are the winemakers. Ageing split between barrels (25% new) and concrete vats. 90/100 Jane Anson, Decanter.
