  1. $60
This is a sophisticated and smooth Chardonnay with an extraordinarily soft and silky texture in the mouth. The wine’s aromas recall peach blossom, caramel and butter squash and are delivered with intensity and confidence. Pair it with honey-roasted ham or stuffed pork roll.  — M.L.  (3/1/2009)

Named after the last private owner of what is now a charitable foundation, this ripe, full Chardonnay has enormous flavors. Wood, sweet caramel and vanilla aromas are balanced on the palate with tropical fruits, peaches, apples and creamy acidity to give it a touch of freshness.  — R.V.  (7/1/2003)

Villa Russiz 2002 Tocai (Collio)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $22
This is still a closed, young wine, but the potential of the spicy, ripe, but still light and elegant fruit is going to be great. Intense concentration seems to be the hallmark of the wines made by Gianni Menotti at this great estate.  — R.V.  (7/1/2003)

Villa Russiz 2002 Sauvignon de la Tour Sauvignon Blanc (Collio)

  1. $47
The 2002 vintage may not be one of the all-time greats for this top-flight Collio Sauvignon, but it still towers over its peers. Flinty, grassy aromas lead into ripe pink grapefruit flavors and a powerful, lingering finish. A unique expression of Sauvignon.  — J.C.  (12/31/2004)

Interesting and well structured, this can age a few years or more. Aromas of honey, stone fruit and butterscotch candy give this wine a sophisticated edge.  — M.L.  (8/1/2012)
