Peter Maude Fine Wines
2021, POGGIO Alle Gazze Dell'Ornellaia, Toscana IGT BIANCO
Very Sauvignon on the nose, elderflower, green apple, with hawthorn, bitter lemon rind and soft honeysuckle aromas. Supple and nicely weighted in the mouth, a generosity of acidity and richness so you get thick lemon yoghurt type creaminess with orange peel and apricot flesh with lively lime juice flavours. Bright and charming, almost too squeaky clean contrasting some of the oaked notes, but overall enjoyable and easy to approach. Director Axel Heinz and winemaker Olga Fusari. 6% Verdicchio completes the blend. 92/100 Georgina Hindle, Decanter.
Drinking Window: 2023 - 2028
