Icardi Cortese Piemonte DOC l'Aurora 2007

Member Review by jrosser723:

Good fruit, good acid. Peach and pineapple with some mineral notes. Great food wine as well. Some of the more subtle notes came out with a mache, kohlrabi, & preserved lemon salad with Meyer lemon vinaigrette. Enough body and acid to pair nicely with Parmigiano-Reggiano risotto. Great value too.
