How can one forget, for example, their Pinot Grigio Unterebner or their Bordeaux-blends, or the impeccable Pinot Bianco, not to mention Stoan, a white blend that is exquisite to say the least.
For a few years now I have had a weak spot for their Sauvignon and even if its complexity is certainly not that of a great wine, its capacity to bring out the personality of the grape in such poised way always leaves me quite impressed.
