Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This golden color wine has very distinct aromas of grass, citrus and a floral note. Good balance between acidity and structure, the fruit is also very evident on the palate, with a nutty almond flavor on the finish. This wine would match well with dishes with some spice to them such as Mexican or Indian cuisine.
Jane Staples Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A brilliant straw yellow in a wine that is made from 4 varietals: Grechetto 405, Procanico 20%,Verdello and Canaldo blanco 40%, sourced in Unbria and grown in chalky soils.
A distrinctive flowery and fruity bouquet, with notes of fresh-picked meadow flowers, citrus fruit golden apple and touche sof sage and minerality. On the palate, there is also honeyed apple flavour and almomd flavours, with a smooth mourhfeel and good balance betweenstructure, acidity and fruity notes. Long,fragrant finish, suggesting almonds.
