Anselmi Capitel Croce 2009

Member Review by Sweetstuff:

TN: 2003 Anselmi I Capitelli Passito Bianco (Verona IGT); 12.5 pabv; WineCommune/JBuckley, $6/375 ml (retail more like $32).Full gold with a hint of green. Nose of smoke, leather, oatmeal with cream and honey, truffles, and dried marjoram and grasses leading into full-throttle perfectly ripe pineapple and orange or tangerine oil.Thickly sheeting full-bodied wine, with a powerful sweet and sour attack, and evidence of great energy. Sweet pineapple and orange juice notes, showing much more acidity than I expected, based on critic's notes. Shows intense presence on the finish.92/100, which is what I scored it once before, but is it worth another half-point just because it's so sexy? Yes, this wine went for six bucks on WineCommune, one of my best finds there. Mike and I bought a whole half-case. One corked bottle thus far. (92 pts.)

Capitel Croce 2005 - 89 Points, International Wine Cellar/ Bright gold-tinted yellow. Pear and spice on the nose, with complicating suggestions of apricot, almond and flint. Supple and smooth, with lemon, peach and vanilla flavors complemented by a hint of oak and a light saline quality. The long, creamy finish features a late note of vanilla. This was fermented and aged in small oak barrels.

Outstanding! Vanillin and spice aromas, a creamy texture, admirable finesse and complexity and great concentration and length.The Anselmi winery is located in Monteforte d Alpone, a small town nestled in the hills of Verona. The property extends to 70 hectares, situated on the highest slopes of the hills between Monteforte and Soave.Roberto Anselmi s uncompromising quality-over-quantity approach has helped redefine the image of northern Italian wines.Grapes: 100% GarganegaRegion: Italy / Veneto / Monteforte d AlponeMaker: Roberto AnselmiNotes: The Anselmi Capitel Croce exhibits a straw colour and subtle vanillin and spice aromas are noticeable in the aromatics, a creamy texture, admirable finesse and complexity and a surprisingly fat concentration and length.Serve: At 8-10c the elegant concentration of this wine makes it an ideal choice to partner flavoursome fish, poultry, goats cheese and green salads.ABV: 13%
