2011 Nuraghe Crabioni Vermentino di Sardegna 11% $16

Earth and mineral on the nose, with notes of dried brush and fennel framing bright lemon-driven aromas. On the palate this is bright, nervy and well-balanced, with a touch of late arriving richness adding some depth and helping to buffer the bracing acidity. That richness carries onto the finish, which shows a hint of ripe tropical fruit paired with a classic touch of nuttiness. 87 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.
