James Button writes:  Named for the imposing Dolomite peaks that overlook the vineyard, Vette is a fresh Sauvignon Blanc sourced from 12 hectares owned and managed by private growers and vinified in stainless steel. Floral rather than pungent in character, it’s beautifully lemony and peachy with a juicy, succulent palate that’s both vertical and saline. Peach, hay, summer meadow flowers and touches of mango and grapefruit end with some leesy creaminess and a squeeze of lime.  Drinking 2023 - 2026.  - Decanter 92  

Zekun Shuai writes:  Good intensity of fresh, ripe gooseberries with a hint of sour cream, green mangoes, grapefruit and stones. Fresh and chalky on the palate with zesty acidity that extends to an elegant finish. Drink now.  - James Suckling 91 

Alison Napjus writes:  A light-bodied white, with chive blossom, grapefruit peel and white pepper notes accenting crunchy white peach and melon fruit. Crackles with racy acidity, which drives the lacy, petrol-lined finish. Drink now through 2026.  - Wine Spectator 90 

Straw yellow with greenish highlights. This wine has an aromatic fragrance with the typical hints of white peach, green peppercorn over a pleasing note of sage. Vette is named for the imposing peaks that rise above its Sauvignon Blanc vineyard, and it is the true height of refreshing crispness and earthy minerality. Winemaker Description.
