A very ripe, intense white with sliced grapefruit, lime and fennel seed. Full-bodied but bright and delicious. One of the legendary white wines of Italy. A blend of sauvignon, chardonnay, ribolla gialla, malvasia and picolit.

This is crazy on the nose with dried lemons, volcanic salt, soy sauce and lycee. Full-bodied, dense and beautiful. A fabulous white showing the class and depth that it has oozed for decades. Truly one of Italy’s best whites yet always subtle and complex. Screw cap. Drink now.
92 Pts – Wine Enthusiast
One of Italy’s most celebrated whites, this elegant wine opens with alluring scents of white spring flower, white stone fruit and citrus. Radiant and loaded with finesse, the vibrant palate delivers yellow apple, Bartlett pear, nectarine and a hint of ginger alongside bright acidity.
92 Pts – Wine Advocate
The 2014 Vintage Tunina is a sophisticated blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Ribolla Gialla, Malvasia Istriana and Picolit. The blend is carefully considered to give the wine all the attributes you look for in an important white wine. The bouquet is bright and forthcoming with graceful aromas of summer peach, quince, honey and a touch of spicy saffron. The mouthfeel is tonic and streamlined with drying mineral nuances on the finish. This wine should take on more volume and depth as it moves forward over the next 5 years.
