Terre Bianche Torbato 2014 - 91 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ Vibrant and elegant, this refreshing, mineral-driven white offers aromas of white spring flower, ripe orchard fruit and citrus blossom. Bright acidity frames the juicy pear, apple and flint flavors, while the crisp finish closes on a saline note. This is a fantastic wine from a grape grown only at the Sella & Mosca estate in Sardinia

Stellar Sardinian Wineries/ Sardinia's largest producer is best known for bottlings of such native varetals as Vermentino and Cannonau, but its 2005 Terre Bianche Torbato di Alghero, from the Torbato grape, is worth checking out. Sella & Mosca is one of the only wineries in the world that still bothers to grow this finicky varietal, and the effort pays off in this minerally white, which is barrel-aged fro three months to give it a sweet apple-pie aroma.

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.

Terre Bianche Torbato di Alghero DOC 2014 - 87 Points, Vinous/ Pale, bright yellow color. Lemon, grapefruit, white flowers and a hint of pungent herbs on the nose. Bright and juicy in the mouth, offering simple but clean flavors of grapefruit, lemon, oregano and talc. Finishes firm and citrussy, with modest length. Still, this delivers considerable flavor for only 11.5% alcohol.

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.

/ 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.
