2013 Donnachiara - Beneventano Falanghina

Liked better than the Fiano. Sweet finish. Was not overly impressed at first. But 2nd day was wishing I had a bit more before switching to a red (Chateau Devise D'Ardilley) - Haut Medoc 2009 that I opened to breathe. So not any wow factor but decent wine for the price. Did not analyze taste/bouquet sufficiently for proper notes. That may have been due to my disappointment with the Fiano and lack of wow on this. Not sure if I'll buy again. Much preferred the Italian white purchased 1/23/15 from Ultimate Viña Somoza - Valdeorras Godello 2012 6 Bottle(s) 750ml $95.94 More of the flinty/mineral style I like- Chablis-esque. Kelly thought very interesting- only 1 bottle left (has to be reclaimed). check for this wine in future

Half hour decant in glass before any nose appears. 2 hour decant in glass â?? dense flavor profile, but not a lot of fruit. Seems closed. Extremely long finish. Seems like it could stand another few years aging. After 24 hours â?? the second half of the bottle seems to be expressing more fruit. A better overall taste profile.
