Li Veli Askos Verdeca 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Quite the nose here with honeysuckle, lychee, orange marmalade and lemon drop candy it’s intense and distinctive. This is perfumed and complex. Another wine that turns out to be leaner on the palate than one might guess from the aromatics. This is absolutely lovely, transparent yet with a certain richness. The fruit on the palate is more grapefruit than orange with some citron notes over a floral bed and notes of lime leaf and sage. The orange tones return on the moderately long finish accompanied by some fine mineral accents and an edge of bitter pear. Absolutely lovely wine, if note exactly mainstream. 91pts
