Winestyr Review

This is a rich, round, intense style of Sauvignon Blanc from one of Napa Valley's best under-the-radar producers. Bold layers of honeysuckle, grapefruit, and other citrus notes flow effortlessly across the palate into a long crisp finish. This is a bright and pure expression of Sauvignon Blanc with an impressive amount of depth and complexity. This wine would go very well with creamy past dishes like cacio e pepe or shrimp scampi. 274 cases produced.

What We Love

  • Rich and round
  • Layers of complexity
  • Long finish

This is a very impressive Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc that would serve as a great entry point into the higher echelons of Sauvignon Blanc.

Experience

When I met Matt Buoncristiani up at the Caves at Soda Canyon, high above Napa Valley, I had tasted the Buoncristiani wines before so I knew how seriously they take their craft. I wasn't aware of just how stunning the Caves at Soda Canyon were. I highly, highly recommend that any visit to Napa Valley includes a visit to the caves. If you don't get out to Napa regularly, add this to your bucket list - you won't be sorry. Good times, great wine, and better people. In June of 2015, Robert Parker had this to say about Buoncristiani Family Winery, "this winery merits serious attention and I hope it receives it, because it does seem to me to be a producer that's somewhat under the radar. I immensely enjoy the wines from this winery."

Winery

Buoncristiani Family Winery is run by four brothers - Matt, Jay, Aaron & Nate - who were born and raised in the Napa Valley from a long lineage of Italian winemakers and wine lovers. They take pride in performing all aspects of enology, viticulture, wine production, and art design in order to share with you a true expression of their winemaking passion. Their motto is "quality not quantity" and Buoncristiani's wines are crafted without compromise.
