Cavalli Cremello 2012 83 Points

Chenin Blanc based blends yet the 19% Viognier dominates the aromatics, so much so that the wine smell and taste like a Viognier!, fortunately the 14% Verdelho adds a welcome breath of freshness and liveness to an otherwise rich, slightly oaky and showy , extrovert style, partially denuted of elegance, richly textured and creamy.
