Re Manfredi Basilicata IGT 2006

Member Review by drdebs:

Don't really know what to think of a MullerThurgau-Gewurz blend from the southern coast of Italy, but I liked it! It smells very much like sauternes: coconut, pienapple, and spice. It tasted somewhat like sauternes, with tropical fruit, a good acidic core, and a pineapply finish. As it warms, you get some stone and even iron in the finish, which is quite juicy. Unlike sauternes, it's medium bodied so is not as mouth-coating. Good with spicy food--and God help me, dessert. The bottle says dry. I don't think I agree with that! The most you could say is off-dry and some are going to find this downright sweet. The sweetness is more pronounced the colder it gets.
