The Ca’ Bella red was quite popular, but I had stayed away from the white until G. L. Pease recommended it in person. white melon / white of the melon rind / austere white peach, ripe lemon, some of the Pinot Grigio pear and straw, lightly honeyed, finishing with slight bitterness. Not the smoothest blend, but quite flavorful, containing ripe fruit plus balancing acid and bitterness, and pretty good for the price.
A few days later, the last half glass left in the fridge was much better integrated and really quite tasty!
