2010 Uvaggio Vermentino Lodi, Ca 12% $15

Rather lightly aromatic with nice notes of lemon, a touch of peach and then big chalky and mint top notes. Bright on entry, this is rather small-scaled in the mouth but shows nice depth of flavor. Fruit-driven in the Vermentino way, which is to say not terribly, and showing as much mineral and suggestions of fine herbs over pineapple and green melon fruit. Rather refined and finishing with excellent length and a hint of white flowers and camphor in the mouth. Classy. 88 points

    Came across the Uvaggio last summer and it was delicious. Great intro to the grape.

    I'm a little confused. I've registered with my Texas zip code, but when I click the link to find a particular wine, I'm given stores in New Jersey. That's a bit of a schlep, I think.
