    Default 2002 Jermann Vintage Tunina

    Went to dinner at Sale e Pepe on Marco Island Wednesday night with
    friends. I found the 2002 Jermann Vintage Tunina on the wine list and
    the wine steward claimed it was drinking beautifully and if not
    satisfied there would be no charge for the bottle. What a deal. I've
    had this wine in the 2005 vintage once before and foundit quite
    interesting. A blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Malvasia,
    Picolit and Ribolla. Deep golden in the glass, nose of ripe peaches
    and basil. Very powerful on the palate with peach, apricot, liemon
    and faint grassy notes. A bit of honey in the background. Really
    quite good. "B+"

    The last Jermann Vintage Tunina I had was the 1983. I probably bought
    it in Chicago. I liked it very well, and I am glad to hear that you
    found a much more recent vintage in good form. It did not appear to be
    a wine for long aging, and freshness was part of the charm.
    Distribution of this wine seems to be poor in many parts of the US -
    perhaps production is much less than for many other quality Italian
    white wines.

    To be honest I was concerned about the age on the bottle but was
    assured that it was drinking well and if not satisfied they would
    replace the wine with something else. A "no lose" proposition. The
    was relly good and went well with the food. I'm looking for a few
    bottles for my cellar!
