Altadonna Toscana 2012 Vermentino, $7.64-$13.99, 86 points, poured a bright lime green tinted brass color.
Sweet aroma of lemon/lime with honeysuckle was lovely.
Light-plus body carried good acidity on flavors of honey notes, melon, and citrus (off dry).
The finish followed the palate, but revealed a bit of the 12.5% alcohol and a good climax of ginger spice.
Remarkably food friendly (I paired this with baked spiced vegetables in a butter sauce with toast) white table wine, and will be very interesting for your guests, but as a stand alone wine, I found it just okay. The bottle had a lovely table-setting appearance.
