Maculan Torcolato 2009 375ml
Wine AdvocateThe gorgeous 2009 Breganze Torcolato opens with a bright golden color and a beautifully fragrant bouquet. Vespaiola grapes (100%) rooted in volcanic soils are air-dried after harvest for four months. Layers of honey, apricot, vanilla and light shadings of baking spice lift effortlessly off the bouquet. That signature minerality appears at the back. Surely, the wine has its sweet spot, but this expression seems silkier and more linear than most.
Wine SpectatorThe apricot tart, ground cardamom, guava and pickled ginger flavors are backed by bright, mouthwatering acidity in this rich dessert wine that nonetheless remains light-footed and graceful. Treacle and apricot notes linger on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 200 cases made.
