External Reviews for Anselmi White Blend
A fresh, racy white, with baked apple and peach and a touch of pine resin. Medium-bodied, with a crisp, fruity finish. Drink now.
Anselmirsquo;s 2008 San Vincenzo is mostly Garganega, with 15% Chardonnay and 5% Trebbiano Toscano added to the blend. This rich, honeyed white from Veneto shows excellent balance in a generous style, even if a touch of freshness seems to have been lost. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2010.
The 2009 San Vincenzo is a fat, generous white with plenty of ripe apricots and peaches. The soft, caressing style flows through to the long, pretty finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010ndash;2013.
The estatersquo;s entry-level 2007 San Vincenzo is 80% Garganega, 15% Chardonnay and 5% Trebbiano that was aged in stainless steel. This perfumed, floral white reveals a generous expression of honey, flowers, apricots and minerals with a soft, caressing personality. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2009.
Shows ripe apple, sandalwood and pretty floral notes on a tight medium body, with fresh acidity and a crisp citrus and mineral finish that lingers.
Steely and superclean, with apple, banana and fresh pears. Medium- to full-bodied, with refreshing fruit and a medium finish. Delicious wine. Drink now.
No country in the world does a better job of turning out non-oaked cuveacute;es of dry, light-bodied whites with plenty of flavor. The revolution in white winemaking that has taken place in Italy over the past few years is amazing. Anselmi, a leader of the Soave appellation, dropped the name Soave from his labels so he could reduce the level of required Trebbiano in his wines, and flesh them out with a small percentage of Chardonnay. The result is a gorgeously refreshing, light-bodied effort exhibiting notes of citrus and honeyed grapefruit, wonderful texture, and amazing flavor for such a light, crispy, tangy wine. this is the quintessential offering for drinking as an aperitif. Enjoy it over the next year.
