Brilliant straw yellow, this wine stands out for its aromatic personality and structure of the grapes from which it draws life. The bouquet presents fl oral notes of magnolia, orange blossom and fruity notes of peaches, yellow fruit, citrus fruit, and aromatic herbs. Soft and rich on the palate, well balanced thanks to the pleasant vein of acidity that makes its finale clean. Elegant, very persistent and versatile in its pairings.
Bianco Infinito, Fior D’Arancio Colli Euganei DOCG – 2015 – Jancis Robinson – 16.5 Points
Highly aromatic, grapey and intensely floral – would be too much for some people. Grapey and orange and orange blossom on the palate. So aromatic is is hard to see the volcanic influence. Fresh and extreme in its aromatic quality. I can see why it is called as it is. But it’s surprising the the floral character is still so primary after a few years in bottle.

This incredible-value, Merlot-driven red blend includes portions of Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère, all of which come from vineyards planted on volcanic soils in Italy’s Colli Euganei DOC. It is intensely aromatic and equally expressive on the palate, with lively acidity and smooth tannins.
