Marchesi De' Frescobaldi Benezio Castello di Pomino Bianco Riserva 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

A shimmering, gold-tipped straw-yellow, Benefizio boasts a bouquet that is long-lingering and multi-faceted, with white peach, pineapple, and bananas foregrounding subtle floral notes of mimosa blossom. The full-bodied palate is warm, well- rounded, and smooth, yet it impresses at the same time with an appealing, vivacious acidity enlivening succulent fruit. Hints of ripe pineapple appear again on the finish. Overall, this is a finely- balanced wine with good length and considerable elegance. Serving Suggestiobs: Vegetable soups, baked sea bream, baked salmon fillet, caviar.
