Outer quote mark Bright straw green. Fresh and clean white flowers, green apple and minerals on the fresh nose. Then also fresh and vibrant in the mouth, with focused flavors of pomaceous orchard fruit. This lovely wine finishes with an enticing glyceral richness and a touch of ripeness that are more obvious than usual in this wine thanks to the hot growing season. The Schulthauser has always been one of Italy’s best Pinot Biancos, and it’s all the more impressive as it is not made in small numbers. (ID) Inner quote mark
