Wine experts say this White wine delivers as promised with its full body, effusive peach and grapefruit aromas and flavors, but lacks the depth and interest of some of the grape`s single-vineyard 2012s. But it`s very pure and crisp in acidity, with a delicious feel that lingers in the mouth. This wine is dry, rich and a bit austere, but it explodes with tropical fruit, peach and citrus flavors, all wrapped into complex but refined tannins. It`s especially impressive given the moderate alcohol. The White Fox vineyard designate is based in Ventana, a chilly climate zone above the coastal town of Astana in northern Italy. Grown in 2004, this white is surprisingly orange in color and has a honeyed, spicy edge. The acidity is very present, giving a ripe wine that is deliciously crisp. The richness of 2010 is more than compensated by a finely wrought texture and richness in the finish.
Wine experts say this White wine presents a classic opening dance. The lush aromas of melon, apricot, spice and pungent green herbs are joined by pomegranate and hibiscus flavors. The mouthfeel is streamlined and the complexity is undreamed-for in California. Alconte is the new second wine from Montecastro, but it doesn`t take a back seat to anything. It`s extraordinarily rich and ripe in cherries, blackberries, currants, anise and cedar, with wonderfully thick, refined tannins. The winemaker, Drake Whitcraft, has kept the alcohol relatively low, at just 12.5%. Pure Syrah. The bouquet is briary, with aromas of baked fruit, wet dog and even anise. Pepper and leather flavors show a little more interest on the finish. Still, racy acidity and wiry raspberry and raspberry-skin flavors show the wine`s fairly aggressive alcohol.
