03 MandraRossa, Fiano

Developing some waxiness already around the edges, this wine drinks like a blend of sauv blanc and viognier with the promise of so much more. Racy nose leads into a fuller floral flavor. Quince and orange. Surprising hint of maple. Succulent for its age and style.
Blue, non-export label.

A couple months later, the midpalate seems much emptier with lighter notes of pear and citrus -- almost a golden pinot gris. Reminds me of some white Oregon field blends. Dull.
