/ Excellent: round, medium bodied, ripely flavored (pineapple), and well balanced, with a medium long finish, and overtones of lemon peel, roasted nut, and pear.
/ The 2005 Terre Bianche Torbato is produced from the native Torbato grape which is of Spanish-French origin and currently only produced by Sella & Mosca. This bottling is bright lemon-green in color with aromas of herbs, green apple, and toasted almond. On the medium-weight palate, it exhibits lovely pear and melon fruit flavors with mineral notes a nice clean finish.
Tasting Panel Report/ The white Torbato grape is an interesting Sardinian specialty; smooth and ripe with minerals and light acidity.
Terre Bianche 2011 - 90 points, Wine Enthusiast/ This is a landmark wine for Sardinia that shows the amazing potential of the indigenous Torbato white grape. There’s amazing freshness here, and brightness with an incredibly vibrant quality of citrus and stone fruit. A mineral accent on the nose completes this very pretty picture.
/ This offers an excellent opportunity to taste Sardinia's Torbato grape. The flavors are inviting and intense, including yellow fruit, nuts, roasted chestnuts and honey. Bottom line: It's a wine with loads of personality.
/ This lovely wine features excellent balance between substantial, ripe fruit and zesty acidic structure. Soft fruit recalls white peaches and melons, with weight that places this between light- and medium-bodied. Mineral notes in the finish work very nicely with the lingering fruit flavors and the acidity, which tail off together slowly and symmetcially.
Great Values from Italy/ Sella e Mosca is another of the Sardinian estates worth keeping an eye on. There wines are of terrific value. The 2005 Alghero Terre Bianco Torbato (100% Torbato) reveals an unusual, exotic profile of honeyed, ripe fruit, licorice and medicinal herbs. This medium-bodied, soft textured white will be at its best over the next year or two.
