Situated on the downward slopes of the highest hills of the Commune of Montespertoli, the territory lies to the south-west of Florence, in the area between two valleys Val di Pesa e Val d'Elsa; a chain of hills in an open and sunny countryside where cypress trees sway in the wind, ploughed fields lie close to woodland or alternate with vineyards and olive groves in a perfect harmony of space and colour.
Nuts and honey, a sour apple tang, with a slice of ginger. It’s savoury and very saline, a powdery texture, umami flavours, with again, the cider apple laced with honey flavour and lemon zest in the aftertaste. Not for everyone, perhaps, though I like this old-fashioned style of Italian white, not least with a plate of grilled seafood, or maybe some pesto pasta. Or roast chicken. It’s becoming pretty clear I’ve not had any lunch today, anyway. Tasted: Dec 2020; Alcohol: 12%; Price: $20; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2020-2024+; Rated: 91 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
