Polished, clear, medium-yellow. Forward nose of cantaloupe, pineapple and banana. Full-bodied and full-flavored, but in an elegant way, restrained by tart Italian acidity. Tastes of peaches, apricots and more melon with a slightly bitter finish. Will relax and improve a bit with another year or two. Showed a remarkable affinity for goat’s milk Brie on sour rye crostini.
