A blend of 70% Carricante, Minnella & Grecanico. White wine.
Interesting how this wine changed after being open a day. When first opened, it was soapy on the palate and not very inviting. Decided to leave it for a day to see what would happen.
On day 2, this was a different wine altogether.
Sherry like aromas. Pithy grapefruit pulp with aniseed and fennel notes. Green Sicilian olives and toasted bitter almonds. Finishes with a very tangy lemon bite.
A very full flavoured white wine that cries out for a bit of food.
Highly recommended, but try with an open mind.
Increasingly noticing that top Italian white wines need time in a decanter to open up and show their true self.
Approx $65 from La Vigna
