90% viura 10% Malvasia
Nutty, high acid, roasted lemon, herbs and strong mineral character. A little oxidized note but not too much, the concentration is really profound in this vintage in all facets this is a powerhouse of a white that should age quite well.
Clean and long finish, bright, crisp and fresh with a lingering crystalline taste of citrus and sea salt.

Slight petrol on very dry switchgrass. Birchbark, paper myrtle, matchstick. Dried lemon, red apple and clove, orange pith, burnt kettle aromatics. Medium mouthfeel with lemon charge, pencil wood, madeleine, sweet grapefruit, cocktail lime and a slight persimmon and papaya reversal. Simultaneously crisp and heavy, but always lighter in retrospect. A genuine dichotomy. #cortona #toscana #italianwhite #sauvignonblancday #whitewinereset #whiteleather #bianco #donotrepeatthishashtagunlessyouwantvampirecurses #blanca #blanco — 6 years ago
