Review: *** $ Collalto Verdiso, Colli Trevigiani, Susegana, Italy, 2007 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Collalto Verdiso.

Original tasting and review : This is Collalto Verdiso, Colli Trevigiani, Susegana, Italy, 2007, finished at 11.5% alcohol, being sampled at an ambitious six years from vintage date

In the glass: Light vanilla yellow, with distinct effervescence.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled lightly, shows shy, clean straw and light honey.  From the aroma, seems like this will be still fresh with elements of sweetness.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact completely dry, with elements of citrus, especially lemon, coming through on a bright palate.  Fresh, fast finish.  Held up very well to the aging.  Wants to be served much cooler than room temperature.

In summary: Overall, rates two stars with a plus for longevity on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.

Several days, kept cold and under vacuum, served cold: Same nose.  Palate is crisp, only lightly dry with citrus peeking out around the edges.  Little specks of sugar among the acids. Quite refreshing.   Three stars!  And becomes a best value.
