- Score: 93 Vintage 2017 Vinous Media A pretty and nuanced display of peach skins, yellow flowers, incense, raw honey and crushed almonds lifts up from the 2017 Primo d'Anfora. There are depths of silky textures, all complemented by ripe apple and pear, along with exotic inner florals and a stimulating core of acidity that pulls it all together. Hints of ginger linger long under an enriching air of lemon custard. What a fun yet balanced and characterful expression! The Primo d'Anfora is an old-vines selection of 60% Grechetto, 20% Drupeggio and 20% Malvasia that spends nine months refining in 500-liter terra-cotta amphorae. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
