Luminous yellow. Excellent stony complexity to the pure and perfumed aromas of lemon, nectarine and minerals, along with nuances of peony and buttercup. Intensely flavored and densely packed, offering terrific penetration to the lime, crushed stone, thyme and quinine flavors, and only 12.5 percent alcohol. Finishes with a laser beam of acidity, classically dry and minerally-floral on the aftertaste. Another outstanding vintage for Pietra Marina, which reinforces yet again the notion that this is one of Italy’s four or five best white wines. And this 2012 is an especially great Pietra Marina.
