The vibrant and complex aromas of white and yellow peaches lead into a succulent and elegant palate with a lot of energy. Very long and powerful, salty-mineral finish. JAMES SUCKLING

It is a cru produced exclusively with the grapes of one Fiano vineyard. It is yellow and luminous with green reflections and fragrances of linden, acacia and thyme. It is well structured with flavours of exotic fruit, citrus and honey and a very soft mineral note. This particular elegance also derives from a partial fermentation in small oak barrels. It is a wine with great longevity which can also age for some decades thanks to its richness in precursors of aroma and the integrity of its freshness and taste. QUINTODECIMO

Pale straw-green. Slightly reticent aromas and flavors of ripe yellow apple and pear, complicated by white flowers and minty herbs. Picks up a riper note of apricot on the long, saline, very lemony finish. This needs to be cellared for another year at least, but I also think its expression is currently slightly compressed by the hot 2017 growing season. IAN D'AGATA, www.vinousmedia.com
