Dynamic and exciting this 100% Sauvignon Blanc leaps out of the glass with aromas of apricot Fuji apple lemon zest fresh bay leaf and crushed rock. The palate is textured with a tension between fruity and earthy notes that evolves with each sip. Vibrant acidity and focused minerality keep the mind engaged and the heart happy. Drink now?2030.

The 2021 Sauvignon Ronco Delle Mele is delicate and understated in the glass, wafting up with hints of gingery spice and dried apricots. This is silky smooth and medium-bodied, with ripe orchard fruits and exotic spices flowing effortlessly across a juicy acidity core. A staining of saline minerals is left lingering beneath an air of inner florals as the 2021 finishes cooling and fresh. While balanced to age, I’m not sure if it matters because this vintage of Ronco Delle Mele aims to please.
