Tasting Notes                         

87+(?)   2009  Santa Barbara  Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi "Le Vaglie"   12/5/10 ($17)

     13% alc   
Color: Light silver-gold. (3.0) Bouquet: Golden apple and bosc pear with some zippy minerality. A little restrained. (2.5) Body: Very good acidity and minerality with decent fruit, but could have more of everything. Solid middleweight. (2.5) Flavor: Parallels bouquet, but more forward and giving. (3.0) Finish: Parallels flavor with mineral and fruit lingering. (3.0)
Overall: Restrained in the bouquet and a little lacking in structure, but does come through with mineral-laced apple and pear fruit in the flavor and finish. Tasty, but not as interesting as the '08. Don't serve too cold.
