I recently had the opportunity to try this years vintage of the Vino Bianco from the Italian producer Le Coste. I had heard many positive things about their wines, both from personal acquaintances and in reading online. However, I have to say that I was overall unimpressed, especially due to the fact that the wine had an overwhelming smell of acetone/nail polish remover. I don’t mind some strong acidity here and there, but this was beyond any experience that I had in the past.
What I’m wondering is if this is characteristic of their wines in general? I would be interested to hear about other peoples’ experiences with their offerings, and if my experience was the result of bottle variation or something. I would personally say that I would not be tempted to purchase something from them again in the future (especially at the same price point) but I would be happy to be convinced otherwise.
