ANTONIO GALLONI 91 POINTS - "The 2017 Bianco Centennial Mountain Vineyard, 100% Carricante, is an intriguing white that develops nicely in the glass, showing layers of nuance and dimension with air. At times, the orchard fruit and lemon confit flavors take center stage, while in other moments, the wine's minerality is more present. This has really come together nicely since I last tasted it a few months ago."

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS - " 'We planted this Carricante around five years ago,' winemaker Jeff Brinkman says. 'It sprung from a trip to Italy, and it took a long time to get it into the country. To our knowledge, this is the first-ever Carricante planted or made in California. We made a little before but we didn't release it, so this is the first vintage of our Carricante. We want people to buy this for quality, not as a novelty.' "

"The 2017 Carricante Centennial Mountain Vineyard opens with soft notes of white peach, apricot, cashew and melon with dried flowers, pithy citrus, spicy perfume and a stony undercurrent. It's light to medium-bodied, minerally and very lively in the mouth, with juicy acidity and a long, mineral-driven finish. This is very Chardonnay-esque, and I look forward to revisiting this with some bottle age."

JEB DUNNUCK 90 POINTS - "Also all Carricante from the first plantings of this variety in California, the 2017 Carricante Bianco Centennial Mountain offers a light gold hue to go with a more subtle bouquet of white flowers, tart pineapple, crushed citrus, and a kiss of saltiness that shows on the nose as well as the palate. Beautifully balanced and medium-bodied, it opens up nicely with air and has good acidity as well as a clean, crisp finish. It's a delicious white to enjoy over the coming 2-4 years."
